We are looking for a dedicated Teaching Assistant to support pupils within our academy who have SEND and pupils where English is their additional language. Our Teaching Assistants work across all of our Key Stages from EYFS to KS2 so experience of different key stages is beneficial.

You will be required to support the children individually as well as work with the children within a whole class and group setting. The posts will involve supporting the children’s learning, social and personal care needs along with children where English is their Additional Language.

  • A welcoming academy environment with exceptionally well behaved children who are confident and eager to learn.
  • A commitment to staff wellbeing.
  • A Gold ‘Rights Respecting School’ – 1 of only 6 in Yorkshire and the Humber
  • The only Primary school to be awarded the Quality in Carers standard, at the time of writing.
