‘Ofsted recognised the passion for education that children experience and a clear vision from all staff.’  Ofsted June 2018

Feversham Primary Academy is a very special learning environment that provides a happy, caring community where everyone is encouraged and supported to achieve their goals. Our children are keen to learn, are well behaved and want to achieve their best.  

We are popular locally in our BD3 community and we are within commutable distance of Wakefield, Leeds and Keighley and close to the M1 and M62 motorways. Ofsted in September 2014 judged us to be ‘good’ in all areas across the school and we are well on our way to becoming an outstanding Academy.

We now have an opportunity for a dedicated and committed support staff professional to join ‘Team Feversham’. You will support our teachers in supporting pupils both on a one to basis, and in small groups. Experience in EYFS is a distinct advantage.

This is fixed term post for one year and the successful candidate must hold English and Maths GCSE level  ‘C’ or above or equivalent.

Our staff have benefited from our collaborative work with our other AET ‘northern cluster’ of schools and we will challenge and support you with your career goals while you are part of the ‘Feversham Primary’ family.  

The successful candidate will:

  • Have experience of supporting and adapting learning for pupils in any phase.
  • Have experience of working with young people
  • Be robust, resilient and take a pride in helping students who can sometimes find school life challenging.
  • Be flexible, positive and have a ‘can do’ attitude
  • Have minimum NVQ Level 2 for Teaching Assistants (or equivalent)

We can offer you: 

  • A positive, community driven school where high staff morale and low staff turnover have contributed to the rapid improvements in attainment and progress.
  • Happy, enthusiastic and well behaved children
  • A leadership team who welcome fresh ideas, and see the retention of staff as a high priority. 
  • Well supported teachers who are committed to driving high standards

We actively encourage candidates to visit us, meet our children and staff and learn about our amazing Academy! Please contact Rehana in the school office on 01274 721751.
