Upper Key Stage 2 Teaching Assistant

New Road Primary School is a Good school with Outstanding Early Years (Ofsted 2017).

We are a forward looking school who offer CPD opportunities and the development of our staff is essential to our development.

We are looking for loyal, committed colleagues to work as Teaching Assistants in our Primary school. We believe in our values and the school has a happy community atmosphere based on our key values; Consideration, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility.

As part of the Teacher Assistant role in our school, our Teacher Assistants also cover lunch hour duties; this has really helped our children since they have great respect for Teacher Assistants who encourage the children to develop their social skills whilst eating and play more purposefully.  We have activities on the playground and our Teacher Assistants lead different activities.

A Growth Mindset ethos underpins our learning, building on the belief that every child can learn, no matter what their starting point. Our school motto is “Yes, I can!” and our children have very positive attitudes to learning, particularly when faced with new challenges.

We are a one and a half form entry, multi-cultural school and the children’s cultures are celebrated and some of our children become Young Interpreters supporting each other in school.

Children come to our school with a wide range of ability and our provision for SEN and More Able children is good. We pride ourselves on our Inclusive practice and we have a team of support staff who deliver specialised programmes to support access to learning.

If you are interested in working at New Road, please do contact us and arrange a visit and check out our website.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Successful candidates are subject to an enhanced disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau.
