The Post: Midday assistant

One post: permanent September 24

One post: fixed term: Sept 24 - Aug 25 (due to diminishing need; the Y6 is a bulge year and the additional class will be leaving at the end of the academic year)

Lunchtime is an important time of the day. Children can have greater freedom to play, socialise and learn new games. We need kind, 'firm but fair', positive adults to help support and guide our children to learn essential life skills, e.g. sharing, team work, self-care.

The role provides support to the pupils at lunch time in the dining hall and the playground with the added responsibility of administering minor first aid when required. Pupils will be supervised as well as encouraged to be responsible, following the school code. Children will be encouraged to make 'good choices' that will keep themselves and others safe and happy.

Mid- day assistants oversee the eating of food (either packed lunch or hot school meal), offer assistance with cutting as required and model expected behaviours. The team will teach pupils games and oversee the safe use of playground equipment. The team will follow the school policies and procedures, especially in relation to Safeguarding / Child Protection, Anti- Bullying and Behaviour, PSHE, Health Safety and Wellbeing, and Administering Medicines and First Aid.

Information about the School

Roseacres only opened in September 2015 with 33 pupils on roll! Now with over 200 pupils and eight classes, it caters for pupils in Years R to Y6. It is on the former site of Takeley Primary that relocated to a brand new school on Priors Green development in Little Canfield. Takeley village has and still is undergoing significant change due to continued local expansion resulting in a high demand for primary school places. Consequently, in September '18 a 'bulge' Reception cohort was admitted and a further building project was undertaken that academic year to provide two additional classrooms, creating a dedicated stand-alone Early Years Unit.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
