Exciting New School

Grove Academy is a new free school that opened in September 2017 and is the first all-through school to open in Slough. We now have children in Reception, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8. We are currently in temporary in the centre of Slough and will be moving to a brand new building in 2020. 

Central to our ethos is ensuring that pupils are ready to learn and this is reflected in our Learning Hub. The Hub is a central location in the school  and is designed to provide 1:1 and small group support to those children across the whole school who need it. It is also aimed at inducting new children into the school so that they are ready to learn.  Part of that induction is ensuring that our EAL children are able to access the curriculum.

We are now looking for an experienced colleague to join the team as a higher level teaching assistant to help pupils to develop good English skills through 1:1 and small group support. Part of this will be to assess children new to the country and provide them with an intensive English programme prior to going into class. 

The successful candidate will asses, monitor, evaluate and record pupil progress and prepare reports as required. As an experienced colleague they would also deliver cover work as required.

What can we offer you?

  • A great place to work where you will feel valued for your hard work. 
  • CPD to further develop your skills.
  • Opportunities to grow with the school. 

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has recent relevant experience of working in a school
  • Is a proactive and flexible team player
  • Is able to use their own initiative to support children’s learning.

Closing date: 15th July 2019
