Primary Teaching Assistant - Ark John Keats Academy   

Unique opportunity to join an outstanding new school in north London.    

This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from Nursery to Year 4 and Years 7 to 10.  

The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.  

We are looking for an outstanding Teaching Assistant to join our primary team. In this role you will be responsible for supporting the class teacher to deliver great teaching. There will also be the opportunity to lead whole class teaching and we are very keen to hear from candidates who are considering becoming teachers. Ark runs a teacher training programme and a number of our TAs have followed this route into teaching. 

There is a possibility of placement in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 dependent on your preference and experience. 

This post is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that will break the mould by providing pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds with a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools.  

We will expect you to work hard, role model our values and approach all aspects of school life with a positive and optimistic attitude. In return you will work with a team that will provide vision and direction and great practical and moral support. You will work in an environment where your opinions are sought and welcomed and a culture in which staff feel appreciated and excited by the journey ahead of us. 

Opportunities like this are few and far between in education and we would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information. 

For further information, a confidential discussion or for any technical queries please contact Victoria Edwards, the Primary Co-ordinator, at
