Unique opportunity to join an outstanding new school in north London.

This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from nursery to Year 3 and Years 7 to 9.

The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment.

We are looking for an outstanding Teaching Assistant to join our primary team. In this role you will be responsible for supporting the class teacher to deliver engaging, challenging and exciting teaching and learning, thereby helping pupils to achieve the best academic results they can. It is a post that will require intelligence, vision, commitment and the consistent role modelling of best practice for staff and pupils.

There is a possibility of placement in Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 dependent on your preference and experience.

Our belief at the academy is that every child has the capacity to be a knowledgeable, literate, numerate, articulate, confident and compassionate individual. Our purpose is to imbue pupils’ minds with a breadth and depth of knowledge that enables them to develop cultural literacy and a true sense of self-worth. This knowledge-based approach is underpinned by the expectation that all pupils are educated to the standard necessary to gain entry to the best universities.

As the school grows, we want our new staff to have a powerful role in establishing and embedding policies, systems and procedures that will enable our pupils to make excellent academic progress and develop habits of excellence. We also want our staff to be instrumental in creating a very strong culture where learning is greatly valued by all, respect and compassion are the norm and behaviour is exemplary.

This post is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that will break the mould by providing pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds with a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools.

We will expect you to work hard; show commitment at all times to our vision; lead by example and achieve our aims. 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 like this are few and far between in education and we would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information.

To apply please go to https://goo.gl/eBR4KU. Please submit your application by 9am on Wednesday 21st June 2017. For further information, a confidential discussion or for any technical queries please contact Victoria Edwards, the Primary Co-ordinator, at v.edwards@arkjohnkeatsacademy.org.

Closing date: 9am on Wednesday 21st June 2017
Interview: w/c 26th June
Start Date: September 1st 2017
