Teaching Assistant (1:1) - St Catherines Primary School

Part Time/Term Time 15.75 hours per week An opportunity has arisen at St Catherines Primary School, for an enthusiastic, talented, resilient and committed person to encourage, motivate and support children in school. The work is rewarding and satisfying with no two days the same. You will ultimately be part of a team ensuring a safe and happy learning environment for all children. This post is supporting a Key Stage 2 child on a 1:1 basis. The appointment is ideally to be worked across five mornings; Monday to Friday; term time only, but there could be some negotiation on the weekly working pattern. This fixed term post is formally attached to a child and therefore when the funding is withdrawn or the child leaves the school, the post will no longer be available. The curriculum work will be prepared by the teacher and as with all Teaching Assistant posts you may be asked to cover in other areas of the school as and when required. As a Teaching Assistant you will need to be calm but firm and enjoy working with children, having a minimum qualification at GCSE Maths and English. Experience of working in a classroom situation or a qualification as a Teaching Assistant, NVQ2 or NVQ3 would be ideal. We are looking for someone who can continue to liaise and build relationships with parents and families, therefore good courteous communication skills are a necessity. Our highly successful federation is a popular choice with children, parents and staff and our schools boast a friendly and welcoming environment. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This role requires a DBS disclosure. This role requires the ability to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English. Interview Date: w/c 5 December 2022
