Permanent Teaching Assistant Job

£16,699 per annum
Church of England Primary School
Whitehawk, Brighton

Sussex Teachers are working with a small C of E Primary school in Brighton to find an Early Years / Reception teaching assistant to begin in September 2019.

Our client is a small, friendly and kind primary school who are looking for a teaching assistant to join their Reception team on a permanent basis. Situated in Whitehawk, the school is very easily accessed by public transport, with a regular bus route from Brighton town centre. The school aspires to create lifelong, reflective learners, equipping children with knowledge, skills and understanding to help them to make informed choices throughout their lives. Children are at the heart of everything they do at this school and they strive for the very best for their pupils.

As a classroom teaching assistant, you will support the Early Years class teacher in delivering exciting lessons to children aged 4 and 5. You will provide additional guidance to pupils during class activities, either on a one to one basis or in small groups. As well as general TA duties you will be working with pupils with challenging behaviour, and so it is important that you follow the school’s behaviour policies and positive reward systems to ensure a consistent and fair approach to the students in your care.

You will have experience supporting young learners either as a Teaching Assistant, SEN Individual Needs Assistant or Nursery Practitioner. You will be both enthusiastic and energetic childcare professional, who is passionate about supporting children to reach their full potential - no matter what their starting points. You should be available for full time work from September, happy to work from 8.15 am until 3.15pm with a 30-minute lunch break.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a dedicated and highly skilled team of teachers, support staff and governors. This is a permanent position paying a scale 3 salary of £16,699 for 37 hrs per week. If you would like to join a school where you can really make a difference, please apply now with either a CV or Job application form.
