‘The Headteacher’s vision for the academy is captured by the academy’s motto: ‘Making our best better’. Leaders and staff share this ambition and expectations are high’. Ofsted 2016 

Anglesey Primary Academy is an exciting and vibrant place to work that is forward thinking with dedicated, hardworking staff who are committed to serving a culturally and linguistically diverse community. The Academy was graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in January 2016.  The Academy, based in Staffordshire, opened December 2012 and is sponsored by Academies Enterprise Trust (AET).  The Academy is a large 3 form entry primary academy with a high percentage of bilingual and multilingual pupils.

Our Nursery is only in its 3rd year but is proving to be an asset to the community and we are currently full with 64 children (3-4 years olds). Quite a number of our children attend for 30 hours compared to other settings. It is a lovely environment to work in with an enthusiastic and supportive team. There are also lots of opportunities to work within the whole school.

You should hold a Level 2 qualification for Teaching Assistants (or equivalent qualifications or experience) and have a calm and caring nature. You will need to be reliable, enthusiastic, flexible and have excellent verbal and communication skills with children and parents. The ability to write reports and keep clear and accurate records is required. You should also be a team player. Please refer to the job description and person specification for full details.

During the 24 months of the apprenticeship you will be assigned an Assessor and will undertake a Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (Early Years Educator) qualification.  You may also be required to complete Literacy, Numeracy and IT Functional Skills (this will be determined by existing qualifications).  Training will be mainly through workplace assessment which will take place every 3-4 weeks.

In return, we can offer:

  • Enthusiastic, hardworking and happy children who always give their best.
  • Friendly, committed and supportive staff, parents and governance
  • An energetic, vibrant and diverse environment where everyone is valued.
  • CPD opportunities at our partnership schools within AET

Visits to the school are very welcome, please contact Mrs Chrissie Allen, Assistant Headteacher EYFS & KS1, to arrange an appointment: callen@angleseyprimaryacademy.org
