North Ormesby Primary Academy is a special place. Everything we do is for our children and our community, which is why Ofsted grade us as an ‘outstanding’ school. We are looking for an experienced EYFS practitioner with strong knowledge in phonics delivery.

"You are determined to provide all pupils with the very highest quality of teaching so that they are better equipped for the next stage of their education. You encourage all pupils to have high aspirations for their future by helping each individual to discover what makes them remarkable." (Ofsted, June 2019)

We are a small community primary based on the outskirts of Middlesbrough serving an area of high challenge and social deprivation. Our staff are enthusiastic and committed to improving outcomes for children with a passion for learning through a creative and meaningful curriculum.

We are a 1:1 iPad school, recently awarded the ‘Apple Distinguished School’ award, and we use technology very effectively across all of our curriculum and across the school. We are also an ‘IQM Centre of Excellence’ for inclusion and have a fantastic mental health package we call ‘Remarkable Minds’, which runs parallel to our academic offer.

We are looking to appoint a Higher Level Teaching assistant to work as part of our outstanding support team. We are looking for somebody with commitment, energy, and drive to join our team and work closely with staff to provide positive learning experiences for all our pupils.

We expect the successful candidate to:

• Be able to build great relationships with pupils

• Be able to deliver high quality learning experiences for all pupils
• Have high expectations of learning and behaviour and inspire and motivate our children

• Seek to make learning exciting and a positive experience
• Communicate well with parents, carers and members of staff, as well as pupils
• Demonstrate good communication skills both orally and written
• Work well as part of a team
• Be willing to contribute to school life outside of the classroom

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we’re inspiring.

We offer:

• More training and development, so you can get better at what you do - Varied and stretching continuous professional development opportunities.
