Teaching Assistants Required

A helping hand from you - a head start for them.

We want all our young people to have the best chance of success in life. To make sure that’s the case, you’ll give them extra help when they’re in the classroom. The right support can really make an enormous difference. As a Teaching Assistant, you have to be understanding, show warmth and be committed. That’s because our young people have social communication difficulties, ASD and speech, language and communication difficulties which calls for extra dedication. Help them progress and you’ll have every opportunity to do the same with your career.

The role
As a Teaching Assistant at Lathom Junior School, you will be working directly with young people in the classroom every day. You’ll help them learn, monitor their work and help raise their self-esteem. It’s not just about academic achievement; we want them to feel accepted and confident in their abilities. You’ll need to be very resilient and dedicated to the wellbeing of our young people. Your support can be invaluable to teachers and young people, which means it’s very rewarding.

Your profile
As a Teaching Assistant you should have an understanding of learning in classrooms, welfare and safeguarding practices within Education. You will also need to be qualified to at least NVQ level 2 (or equivalent), but what we’re really looking for is the ability to connect. We need you to build great relationships with all our young people, so you can motivate them to do well and be the best that they can be. If you’re emotionally strong and good in a team, we can offer a role with exciting prospects. There are occasional meetings outside school hours, for which your attendance will be required.

About us
At Lathom, we believe that all our children deserve the best education we can give them. We work hard to create a successful learning culture which will enable all pupils to become informed, confident, enthusiastic, inspired and independent learners for life.

We have developed an ethos where we continually try to spark children’s interest; their quality of learning is central to the school's work and purpose. All children are encouraged to achieve their full potential and celebrate their achievement.
