JOB OVERVIEW

We have a fantastic new job opportunity for a Teaching Assistant who has previous experience supporting Teachers in their classes with good administrative, organisational and communication skills.

Working as the Teaching Assistant you will join a school that is committed to giving all children an engaging and enriching educational experience. The school has an ethos which is based on three pillars: Educational Excellence, Spiritual Insight and Character Formation. The school is welcoming and has a strong sense of community. Strong relationships between staff and pupil are at the heart of the school and provide the basis for their belief that all pupils will thrive there.

The school is based in the rolling greens of Somerset, 12 miles south of Bath, on the edge of the Mendips, with Bristol, Glastonbury and Stonehenge all within a 25 mile radius.

The school sits just above the thriving town of Frome, with the park running alongside the site. Over the last 4 years, the site has been through a major transition, from a much-loved Victorian-era town hospital to a new school for the families of Frome.

As the Teaching Assistant you will be someone who is passionate about learning to the highest standard, committed to maintaining a healthy comfortable environment, and who has a sharp eye for detail, to build on the school’s successes and contribute to their continuing development.

 

DUTIES

As a Teaching Assistant your duties and responsibilities include:

  • Work under the guidance of the class Teacher in planning and implementing work programmes
  • Provide general support to the class Teacher
  • Support pupils learning in the most effective way
  • Encourage pupils to interact and work cooperatively
  • Provide support in the delivery of the National Curriculum
  • Administer and mark routine tests under guidance of the class Teacher

 

CANDIDATE REQUIREMENTS

The school is looking for someone who:

  • Comes from any background, faith or non-faith, who has high aspirations and expects the very best from all pupils
  • Has excellent interpersonal skills based on effective communication
  • Has a passion to ensure every child succeeds and reaches their full potential
  • Ensures the Health and safety of all pupils
  • Will show commitment to enhancing the school's spiritual ethos
  • Is committed to their own professional development
  • Will inspire, challenge, motivate and support the whole school community
  • Has a good knowledge of the National Curriculum
  • Is an experienced and outstanding Teaching Assistant
  • Has an excellent knowledge of how young children learn and develop

 

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful candidates are required to have an Enhanced DBS check unless internally appointed and still within the cycle of DBS re-checks.

The school want to make sure they are attracting the widest possible range of people to the school and ensure that they are accepted, understood and treated equally when they work here. This means the school will work hard to understand that each employee is unique and ensuring that individuals or groups are not treated differently or less favourably on the basis of specific characteristics. Such characteristics include (but are not limited to) age, disability, gender including transgender, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, and how the school supports pregnant women and new parents.

Any appointment subsequently made, for the Teaching Assistant position, will be subject to the receipt of satisfactory references and other pre-employment checks.
