30 hours 50 minutes per week, term time + 5 Inset days


We value our team of Teaching Assistants very highly and have maintained a large group of TAs who all work at TA3 level.  This is because our highly skilled team of TAs are able to plan and deliver teaching to small groups and have a very proactive role in the development and care of our students who need that closer level of care or supervision.

The school is looking to appoint a committed, enthusiastic individual to the position of Teaching Assistant. The role we are looking to fill will be part time and will support teachers and students in any designated year group. The successful applicant will ensure that every child is able to gain the most from their education by supporting them with their additional needs in order to maximise their learning as required.  We are looking for a creative candidate who will make a big impact in the life and learning environment of our pupils. 

As TA3s our teaching assistants can be called upon to provide cover at times.  The successful applicant will have a keen interest in working with children and in supporting and developing their learning. 

As a member of our successful Teaching Assistant team you will have good interpersonal skills, be flexible and focused on the needs and wellbeing of the child. You will be a team player with a ‘can do’ approach to work and a good sense of humour.
