Rawmarsh Thorogate School is a one form entry primary school situated in a pleasant location within Rawmarsh.

We need to strengthen our dedicated team of teaching assistants to provide additional support to our children, initially in year 5. We are hoping that this post will be extended depending on financial considerations. We are being prudent in advertising it as a one year contract, but we are fairly confident it will become a permanent post. Our day starts at 8:30 am and ends at 3:30 pm with a 45 minute lunch break.

The successful candidate would be required to support learning opportunities presented to individuals and small groups as well as other general classroom duties. See Job Description for further details.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to work with primary aged pupils, make a positive impact on pupil outcomes and well-being, who is a positive team player and genuinely likes children.

  • Lots of energy and a good sense fun.
