Teaching Assistants required for casual contracts
£11.50 per hour
Heathcote School is currently seeking to recruit Teaching Assistants to join a new team of casual staff. We are specifically looking to enlist enthusiastic and talented TA’s to cover for absence or short term support within the school when the need arises.
We would like to hear from TA’s that are experienced to work within our school, or candidates that are seeking to gain experience within a TA role. We are seeking to recruit appropriate casual staff who may want to return to employment having had a break, or who may only be available on certain days of the week.
Heathcote School is an 11 – 18 School that has a new Headteacher and a new vision. The school is on a rapid journey of improvement ensuring the ‘good’ status (Ofsted 2014/2018) is retained and for the school to ultimately become ‘outstanding’ in all areas. This is an exciting time to be at a school in an unparalleled setting with unlimited potential. In a recent survey, 96% of staff stated that they enjoy working at this school.
The School Improvement Plan (2017 – 2020) focuses on four key areas:
- Building at all levels an ambitious culture of high challenge and low threat enabling Heathcote to be the school of choice for staff and parents.
- Ensuring the best possible learning and leadership of learning, across the school.
- Ensuring safety is at the heart of everything we do and standards of behaviour and attendance are exemplary within the school and community.
- Giving all pupils equal opportunities to make maximum progress.
The successful candidates will be those that understand the demands of pupils with a wide range of special needs, liaising with teachers to establish an appropriate learning environment for those pupils requiring support. You will be working with and supported by an experienced team of teachers and leaders, Teaching Assistants and HI Communicators.
The school puts well-being and development at the heart of its work and we have very talented staff who are encouraged to grow, develop and work collaboratively, within school and with local schools, and to be the best they can be. We are working to ensure school improvement in a high challenge, low threat way and enable robust systems and structures to ensure consistency in all areas, encouraging the growth and development of all. The school has excellent resources and a stunning site close to the forest.
We aim to ensure our staff body reflects the diversity of our community and use blind-recruitment processes in our short-listing. We employ staff with diverse skills and backgrounds and this ensures that our policies and systems are always inclusive of all our stakeholders. We value and respect everyone’s identity and our Equality Information and Objectives Policy confirms our commitment to the 2010 Equalities Act.
