Are you looking for a new challenge?

At St Columba we have a number of children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 with a range of additional needs who require 1:1 and small group support.  This position will initially be until the end of the academic year, beyond this will depend on individual needs and funding.

Whether you have experience in primary education or are starting out on a new career path, we will ensure there is an appropriate level of support and encouragement to enable you to grow and develop at St Columba.   If you commit to offer our children the very best, we will be committed to you.

Our successful candidate will be:

  • Someone who has a positive can-do attitude.
  • Determined to ensure that all children are given opportunities to be the very best they can be and have an inclusive approach to learning.
  • Passionate about making learning experiences exciting and memorable.
  • A person with high expectations of themselves and the children's performance.
  • Committed to delivering the highest standards in supporting the learning and well-being of our children.
  • Confident to build positive relationships with parents.
  • A reflective practitioner who has excellent interpersonal skills.
  • A team player who is highly motivated and enthusiastic.
  • Flexible and able to use their initiative.
  • Prepared to take an active part in the wider life of the school, willing to add something extra to the school community by sharing their talents.
  • Empathetic and able to support and promote our Christian ethos.
  • Will have English and Maths GCSE grades A-C or equivalent.

In return we can offer:

  • A great learning environment.
  • Happy, enthusiastic children who are motivated to learn.
  • A dedicated and mutually supportive staff team.
  • Supportive leadership, parents and governors.
  • High quality opportunities for continued professional development.
  • A real education experience - yes, we know we have to achieve high standards (and we will), but we believe that this happens through valuing the whole child, providing holistic experiences and instilling a love of learning in every child.
