Are you looking for a change? Do you enjoy working with Children? Do you want to get back into the workforce?

Working as a midday assistant is a really rewarding job. You have the opportunity to build relationships with the children and learn their individual characters and personalities. Children are always keen to show off their play skills and share their stories and actively seek feedback from the adults around them. By role modelling important social skills such as taking turns, listening to each other, being inclusive and working constructively on problems you have the opportunity to positively impact so many young lives. Our priority is to keep our children safe at all times and the midday team are critical in ensuring we are able to do this.

Perhaps you or someone you know has considered applying before but been worried about aspects of the role or application process. We have a lovely friendly team here who would be happy to talk to you about the opportunities we have and what we enjoy about working here. For many of us this was a re-introduction back to work after career breaks due to family commitments. We provide training and as long as you can bring commitment, patience and a positive 'can-do' attitude we are certain of your success.

Please contact the school on 01371872340 if you would like to learn more about any of these roles. Closing Date for applications is Friday 28th June 2019

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants must be willing to undergo an enhanced DBS check.
