Post: Teaching Assistant, Green Ridge Primary Academy

Working Hours: 34.5 hours per week, Term- time plus INSET days

Contract: Permanent

Start Date: ASAP or 1st December 2019

 

Do you enjoy working with children? Do you have the skills to support their learning and development? Have you got a ‘can-do’ approach and outlook? At Green Ridge Primary Academy, we are looking for Teaching Assistants who will work as part of our support staff team, across the school, to support children in their learning and development, including those children with Special Educational Needs and for whom English may be an additional language. We are looking for someone who is up for getting stuck in to all aspects of academy life!

About us

Green Ridge Academy is a new primary school built on Berryfields, which opened in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building. The permanent school building opened in September 2018. The academy currently is two-form entry from Nursery through to Year Two, and with a single class in each Year Three and Year Four. The school will grow year-on-year, taking children from aged 2-11. The school will initially have a capacity for over 450 children, but is being built with the additional capacity to extend to a three-form entry school with just over 650 children.

The academy is now looking to appoint additional staff to meet the needs of the children within the academy in its brand-new building. You will be part of the team which has the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the academy from scratch will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the academy take shape over the next few years. To see more information about the school, including design plans of the school, please visit our website http://www.greenridgeacademy.co.uk

 

What we’re looking for:

We welcome applications from candidates with experience from educational or other relevant childcare backgrounds. Ideally, the successful candidate will be expected to either hold, or be prepared to undertake if needed, a full and relevant Level 2 or Level 3 qualification in Childcare as required to work flexibly across the Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes as the academy grows. We also welcome applications for graduates who are looking to gain experience before enrolling onto a teacher-training programme.

 

The successful candidate will have:

– The motivation and passion to achieve the very best for the children with additional needs in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence

– A good understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage and/or a good understanding of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum

– A good understanding of the range of additional needs that pupils can have and how best to support them

-The ability to work independently as well as part of a wider team

-The ability to work on initiative

-A ‘can-do’ approach to all aspects of academy life

-A willingness to undertake professional development and grow their skills

– Excellent communication skills

 

In return we can offer:

– A commitment to you and your professional development – Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors

– A growing learning community

– Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference
