Assistant Teacher - January 2023

  • We are looking to employ assistant teachers to work alongside our teachers to support the learning of children

  • across the school. This varied role is best suited to flexible and adaptable individuals. As a small school, no two

  • days are ever the same!

  • The role is partly class-based, working under the direction of a qualified teacher to support learning within lessons,

  • but also involves working with small groups pre-teaching, delivering interventions or occasionally delivering pre-

  • planned whole-class lessons to enable teachers to deliver group interventions.

  • Ideally, we are looking to fill both a full-time and part-time (mornings only) position to add further strength to our

  • incredible team; if you choose to apply please state which position you are looking for, if you are flexible and would

  • like to be considered for both you are welcome to declare both but indicate a preference.

  • The most suited candidates will bring enthusiasm, positivity, patience and humour as well as an understanding of

  • child development. Formal qualifications in supporting teaching and learning will be an advantage, but training and

  • development is provided to successful applicants in order to support them and provide the very best for our

  • children. A good standard of English and Mathematics is essential in order to be able deal with the demands of the

  • curriculum.

  • This is a genuinely exciting opportunity to join us in a rapidly growing and improving one-form-entry Primary School

  • in Totton. Since joining the Gateway Multi-Academy Trust in April 2019, we have gone from strength-to-strength;

  • we are proud to be making a difference to the lives of so many within our community and our new popularity and

  • reputation reflects this.

  • For more information about our school, ethos and values please visit the website or Facebook page where you will

  • get a ‘feel’ for life with us.

  • The recent investments in buildings, grounds and staffing have helped us to focus on what is most important: our

  • children. Whilst we have made significant improvements, we’re not done yet and we are looking for the next great

  • inspirational assistant teachers to join us on our upward trajectory.

  • Whilst we don’t underestimate what is to come, we do it with passion, love, laughter and most of all: team-work.

  • We have tea in the pot and biscuits in the tin so if you believe you have what it takes to join us, we look forward to

  • hearing about what you have to offer and showing you what makes us so special.
