EARLY YEARS EDUCATOR / TEACHING ASSISTANT
Required for September 2017
Clifton High School is an academically selective, co-educational, independent day school for over 570 pupils aged 3-18 years. Situated on a beautiful Bristol site, we operate the Diamond Edge Model of education underpinned by a strong pastoral and family ethos.
We are looking to appoint an Early Years Educator / Teaching Assistant to work, in the main, with a reception class in our EYFS department and across the primary age range. Predominantly a term time role, additional days/hours will be required during the School holidays.
We would like to hear from candidates who have two years’ experience of working effectively in a day care or education setting. A Level 3 qualification in Early Years (e.g. Level 3 NVQ Teaching Assistant qualification, NNEB, CACHE Diploma in Childcare and Education, BTEC National Diploma in Childcare Studies) is essential, as are excellent numeracy and literacy skills (minimum level 2, ideally with a grade C English Language and Mathematics). A warm and positive approach and the ability to use one’s own initiative are essential, as is a demonstrable stability and commitment as evidenced in previous similar roles. The role will involve classroom learning support, maintaining classroom displays, working in Infant holiday clubs and supporting the teaching and learning of children across the Primary age range.
The successful candidate will enjoy contributing to an excellent working environment for pupils, staff, parents and the wider School community.
