We are seeking to employ a Teaching Assistant at Trinity Church of England School, Belvedere.
We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic person committed to developing pupil potential. You will be a strong team player who will contribute to the wider life of the school, have excellent communication skills and be able to work positively with children and staff.
You should have the capacity to support pupils with special educational needs and be aware of the importance of data collection, analysis and target setting in order to provide a full and extensive level of support for these pupils.
Reporting to the SENCO you will work within an agreed system of supervision, to implement work programmes with individuals/groups, in or out of the classroom.
Please see the job description for further information regarding this role.
Trinity School is a dynamic, forward thinking and oversubscribed mixed Church of England learning community for pupils aged 11-18. Teaching is motivating and fun, and learning opportunities are not confined to the classroom; we offer a range of educational opportunities for all our pupils. We seek to challenge our pupils’ perceptions and aim to equip them with the skills to be independent and resilient learners. The school is a member of the Trinitas Academy Trust, a collaboration of one secondary school and five primary schools.
“The school cares keenly for its pupils. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. The individual attentions given to pupils helps them to thrive and leaves them well prepared for the next phase of their education.”
“Pupils are committed learners; they want to do well and encourage each other to work hard.” (Ofsted, February 2016)
At Trinity, we can offer you an environment where “behaviour is outstanding” which is “reflected in pupils’ excellent conduct around the site, the respect they show their teachers and the courteous manner in which they greet visitors to the school.” We provide excellent training and induction support programmes for new staff and NQTs, as well as the highest quality professional development through the extensive use of professional networks across the Trust. This is a school with a harmonious working environment and supportive colleagues, which has a very strong, shared Christian ethos. As part of the Trust, we also offer a childcare voucher scheme and competitive pay on the Outer London Pay Scales.
Trinity School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and all staff and volunteers are expected to share that commitment. Please note that the successful applicant will require an enhanced DBS check.
This post is considered to be a customer-facing position; as such it falls within scope of the Code of Practice on English language requirement for public sector workers. The school therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016 to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the person specification. These will be applied during the recruitment/selection and probationary stages.
