Newton Prep is a successful and dynamic school for over 620 sparky, community-minded children aged 3-13, situated at the heart of one of London’s most exciting developing areas in Nine Elms. We have high expectations of both children and staff. We are committed to education in the fullest sense; our curricular and extra-curricular provision, combined with a vibrant House system, strong pastoral care and outstanding facilities, ensure that each one of our pupils benefits from a first-class, 21st-century British education. We are conveniently situated close to Battersea Park and Queenstown Road BR stations.
We require an enthusiastic and motivated Teaching Assistant with good literacy and numeracy skills to work three days per week in one of our Year 2 classes for the next academic year, commencing September 2018.
Working under the supervision of a qualified teacher you must be able to work independently and be capable of working with small groups of children in order to be able to support their learning and assess their progress. The post also involves the supervision of pupils participating in after-school clubs.
You must be educated to A’ Level standard or equivalent and have excellent written and verbal communication skills; a strong work ethic as well as the ability to work as part of a cohesive team. Previous experience of working with primary aged children is preferable but not essential.

Salary range is on a range £10,171-£12,636 (actual pro rated salary) depending on qualifications and experience. Other benefits include contributory staff pension scheme, fees discount, staff gym, free school meals and car parking
