St Edward's Church of England Primary School are seeking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to start as soon as possible. The Teaching Assistant will be supporting our Foundation Stage and KS1 children with their learning. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to make a difference to the provision and development of our pupils.

St Edward’s is a truly wonderful place to work with children who are an absolute delight, and they have an incredibly supportive community. The family ethos of the school is second to none and this is frequently commented on by parents and visitors to the school. Their staff team is dedicated and committed to developing the knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding which will enable the children to enjoy learning, achieve success and to feel contented and fulfilled across the curriculum. The staff ensure, within their journey at the school, that the children learn about and have confidence in themselves as learners where they are encouraged to hold high aspirations for their future.

You will have had previous experience in working with children in a similar setting and be able to effectively communicate with adults and children alike. You will work in partnership with the teacher in the management of pupils and the classroom assisting pupils to learn and reach their full potential. If you have high expectations and understanding of behaviour of all pupils, experience of delivering interventions for children and can create and maintain a purposeful learning environment, we would welcome your application to be part of our successful and hardworking team.

In joining St Edward’s, you will be part of a friendly and welcoming staff team and a supportive community. You will have the opportunity to develop in an environment that has a strong focus on CPD, whatever career stage you are at. As a Church of England school, you will be happy to support the Anglican ethos through our school values.
