We are seeking a qualified and enthusiastic Classroom Assistant to join our experienced and friendly team in Junior School.

To succeed in this role, you will need excellent interpersonal skills and good levels of numeracy and literacy.

  • Managing classroom resources effectively and assisting in the preparation of teaching materials before lessons and clearing away afterwards
  • Providing pastoral/welfare support to pupils
  • Supervising pupils during break and lunch times in the dining hall and the playground
  • Ensuring all health and safety requirements are adhered to at all times both in and outside the classroom, administering basic first aid (if qualified to do so)
  • Breakfast Club supervision from 7.30am during term time
  • Maintaining effective working relationships with pupils, colleagues and parents, working collaboratively across all areas of Junior School

Experience of working with children in a learning or play environment is essential, as is a recognised TA or childcare qualification to NVQ Level 3.
