We are seeking to recruit a Teaching Assistant (TA) to join our first-class team of TAs who work with our teachers to raise the learning and attainment of students and give assistance to students so that they can access the curriculum, participate in learning and reach their maximum potential.
The ideal candidate must be able to communicate effectively and sensitively with students and to adapt to their individual needs to support their learning. They must also be able to demonstrate positive attitudes, values and behaviours to develop and sustain effective relationships within the school community and have professional regard for the school’s CHARACTER values and ethos.
Applications are welcomed from anyone with relevant experience, including those returning to the work-place following a career break. This role may suit a graduate looking to gain experience in the classroom with the vision of moving into the teaching profession. As a member of the Berkshire Teaching Alliance we not only encourage progression into teaching but can assist with that development.
If you want to be part of our plans for the future, please complete an application form and return it, along with a covering letter of no more than one side of A4, to firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would like to discuss the role or arrange a visit to the school, or indeed our day nursery for which we offer generous rates and term time only contracts for children of staff, please contact the school directly on 0118 9413458.
Denefield School is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. CVs will not be accepted.
