About the role

We are a small school with a big heart situated in the heart of the East Sussex Countryside, close to Uckfield, Buxted, Heathfield and Crowborough. We pride ourselves in being a school that nurtures children's individuality and on our church distinctiveness, that pervades through our mission statement, 'St Mark's, with the love of Jesus, will give us wings to fly.' We believe that nurture is the basis for academic success.

We are looking to recruit a Teaching Assistant 3 to work as part of our existing staff team, mainly supporting children in class.  This will include working alongside the class teacher in promoting independent learning, whether it is as a whole class, in small groups or as individuals.  We would like somebody who is able to model a positive attitude to the children with a good understanding of the wide range of primary curriculum subjects.

We are looking for someone with:

•           Good communication skills with children and adults

•           The ability to be flexible and to use their own initiative

•           Proficiency in basic Maths and English skills

•           The ability to use ICT effectively

•           A love of learning

•           If possible, a relevant Level 3 qualification and/or previous experience of working with primary aged children

We can offer you:

•           A nurturing and caring working environment

•           Responsive and enthusiastic pupils

•           A dedicated and supportive staff who are committed to raising standards

•           The opportunity to make a difference

•           A commitment to continuing professional development for all

The pattern of working hours would be as follows:

Monday - Friday
9am-12pm Class TA
12pm-1pm Midday supervisor (further information below)

You will be responsible for enhancing the children’s enjoyment of lunchtime, and promoting good behaviour, by organising and leading activities and teaching children how to play. This will include setting up team games, encouraging appropriate use of equipment and promoting fair play. For some of the lunchtime, you'll be supervising children while they eat their lunch. This will require light cleaning duties and encouraging good manners. Both elements of the role will require a commitment to our school behaviour policy which revolves around the use of the 'Zones of Regulation'. Training can be provided.

The pay for this element of the job role is spinal point 2. £20,441 pro rata.
