Teaching Assistant - Village Primary School - Guildford

Teaching Assistant - Infant and Nursery School - Village School An opportunity to join a friendly and supportive team at a small village school that provides education for children from two to seven years old. The talented team of teaching staff plans a curriculum that provides memorable experiences and purposeful activities that engage children of all ages and abilities. The school prides itself on being value-led - thoughtfulness, honesty, empathy, tolerance and courage are just a few of the values that children and staff live by every day. All of the children at the school participate in Forest School sessions where they learn practical and social skills, and understanding of health and safety issues. Activities include shelter building, creating stick men, potion making, identifying trees, birds, flora and fauna and getting muddy! The power of the school's curriculum lies in its integration where learning crosses boundaries between subjects and is not compartmentalised. For example, writing and reading are used in learning history to help the children understand at a deeper level, and art helps the children to observe historical detail. In your role you will be supporting the teacher and pupils and your job may include: Getting the classroom ready for lessons Listening to children read, reading to them or telling them stories Helping children who need extra support to complete tasks Helping teachers to plan learning activities and complete records Supporting teachers in managing class behaviour Supervising group activities Looking after children who are upset or have had accidents Clearing away materials and equipment after lessons Helping with outings and sports events Taking part in training Carrying out administrative tasksTo support pupils with particular individual needs, some teaching assistants work one-to-one, while others work in small groups.
