Teignmouth Community School, Mill Lane, are seeking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to support within Key Stage 1. This is an exciting opportunity for the right individual to join our experienced team. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual who is able to build relationships and communicate effectively with pupils, staff and parents/carers. The successful candidate will be expected to demonstrate a good standard of English and Mathematics, and be fully committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for our pupils. 

Experience of working with children previously and relevant qualifications would be advantageous (e.g. Level 2 or 3 Teaching Assistant qualifications, NCFE or NVQ).

The successful candidate will:
▪ Be committed to safeguarding all of our children;
▪ Have a passion for working with young children;
▪ Be able to work collaboratively with colleagues across the school;
▪ Be highly organised;
▪ Be passionate about what you do in every aspect.

The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils. 

The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions. 

On 10 May 1922 Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales. 

The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michelangelo: “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high, and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.

If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.
