The Governors of this happy and successful school are looking to appoint a talented Enhanced Teaching Assistant who will have a positive impact on the learning outcomes for groups of children in Year 2 to Year 6.

We can offer you:
• A welcoming, caring school where everyone is valued
• Friendly, enthusiastic pupils who are very proud of our school
• A dedicated and motivated staff who strongly believe in teamwork and building positive relationships across the school and in our local community
• A pleasant and well-resourced working environment both indoors and outdoors.

In return, we are looking for someone who:

• Is able to communicate well with staff
• Can use their own initiative
• Can present learning in a different style if children struggle to grasp concepts.

Where our roles are customer facing and you are required to speak to members of the public, the ability to converse at ease with customers and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential for the post. As a disability confident employer, we are committed to employing disabled people and people with health conditions making reasonable adjustments to support disabled applicants when required.

Calculation of term time only plus two weeks’ pay

Term time only plus two additional weeks’ pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Two additional weeks, inclusive of CPD – 2 weeks; plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service.
Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave.
Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
For example:

Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 47.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Application forms are available from this website and should be returned to the school.

Closing date for completed applications is Friday 21st May 2021, 12 noon.

A longlist reference will be requested by all referees prior to short listing. This is a short screening exercise using preferred requirements listed in the job specification.

Shortlisting will commence Friday 28th May 2021. If shortlisted, you will be invited to visit school on Thursday 10th June 2021.

Interviews will take place on Wednesday 16th June 2021.
