Our students are amazing! They are clever, kind and a joy to work with. They inspire, challenge and drive us as professionals to deliver the highest standards of education and care; to fill their school life with academic rigour, compassion and laughter. School is a busy and varied place of work (definitely not your normal 9-5!) but, as a team, we work together to reach out, find solutions and truly make a difference in the lives of young people.
Our Teaching Assistants are exceptional colleagues who are filled with the passion, energy and commitment needed to deliver outstanding support and care to our young people and particularly to those who need it most. We are seeking exceptional candidates who are excited by the prospect of joining our team and taking on this highly rewarding and valued role within our school community, one that sits right at the heart of our provision for pastoral and academic care.
Applicants must have a minimum of five GCSE (or equivalent) passes at Grade C or above including English and Mathematics and have the flexibility to contribute to in-class support, small group work and one to one support of students with SEND. Equally as important, however, are the ‘softer’ skills needed to engage, inspire and encourage our young people to achieve their very best.
You do not need to have worked as a teaching assistant before, although of course we also welcome applications from experienced professionals seeking a new career challenge in an outstanding school.
We welcome applications from those considering a career in teaching and who are seeking to gain hands-on experience, or who are currently studying for a career in teaching but require flexible, part-time hours to fit in around their studies.
Why you should join Saint Gregory's:
We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable place in the world and the contribution that you bring to our school deserves its own rewards. As a member of our team, you can expect:
• Outstanding professional support to help you develop your career
• A vibrant and dynamic student body that deserves the very best in teaching and support
• A rewarding and dynamic job role making a real, lasting and positive impact
• A positive and innovative learning culture where well-being and workload are effectively managed
• Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme
For an open conversation about the role please contact the SEND Manager, Mrs Stack by email email@example.com to arrange a suitable time.
