Overview

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 Early Years Educators to work as part of our staff team within Early Years to support children in their learning and development throughout Nursery and Reception. We are looking for people who are 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 academy currently has three classes, comprising of two Reception classes and a mixed-aged Key Stage One class. The permanent school building is due to open for September 2018. The school will then grow year-on-year with a Nursery, 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 permanent staff to open the academy in its brand-new building, joining the existing staff who helped set-up the school this year, being part of 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

 

About the role

As a member of the academy’s support staff team you will be responsible for supporting the development of children’s knowledge, understanding and skills across all areas of learning. This may be supporting children on a one-to-one basis, supporting small groups or delivering interventions and additional support to children as needed. Initially this will be within one of the Early Years classes (nursery or reception), but over time may include supporting teaching and learning throughout the academy, as required. The role also includes supervising children during break and lunchtimes as necessary.

 

What we’re looking for:

We welcome applications from candidates with experience from educational or other relevant childcare backgrounds. The successful candidate will be expected to hold a minimum of a full and relevant Level 3 qualification in Childcare as required to work flexibly across the Early Years classes and Nursery as the academy grows.

The successful candidate will have: – The motivation and passion to achieve the very best for the children in our care and be relentless in the pursuit of excellence  – A good understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage

-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 and a good sense of humour 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
