Hours: 15 – 21 hours per week spread over 5 mornings
Fixed-term until August 2018, with the possibility of becoming permanent in September 2018
Closing Date: Friday 5th January
This is an exciting stage in the school’s development as we have just embarked on a journey to become one of the most improved schools in the country.
Roxbourne staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school community’s potential to achieve remarkable things. We have been graded as ‘good’ in all areas by Ofsted and pupils are beginning to make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.
We are looking for an outstanding Teaching Assistant to join our 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 the whole class, support small groups and work with individual pupils. We are very keen to hear from candidates who are considering becoming teachers, as Roxbourne, through Harrow Schools Direct and Middlesex University runs a teacher training programme which offers an exciting route into teaching.
There is a possibility of placement in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 and although the role will be offered on a fixed term basis in the first instance, there is a possibility that this can become permanent.
This post is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that is on a transformational journey. We have recently developed and launched a pioneering reading programme, introduced a specialist teacher model and provided 20% release time for all class teachers (with protected admin time for support staff), and there are still a number of innovative initiatives in the pipeline!
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 to join Roxbourne are few and far between. This role has arisen following the retirement of a long serving member of staff. We would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm.
An application form, job description and person specification are available on the TES and on our school website: www.roxbourneprimaryschool.co.uk/vacancies-1. For further information, a confidential discussion or for any technical queries please contact the headteacher’s PA, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Roxbourne is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to complete an enhanced DBS disclosure and provide references. CVs are not accepted.
