  • ensure the safety, welfare and good conduct of children during lunchtime break
  • supervise children in the dining hall, playground areas and school premises

There are two fixed term roles available: one for 25 hours per week (8:45am to 3:20pm) and one for mornings only (8:45am to 12pm). Both are term time only with an additional lunchtime duty of 5 hours per week. Please state in your personal statement which role you are applying for.
