An ability to plan engaging learning experiences in line with the school's creative curriculum, with clear learning objectives in mind, is essential to the role. Consistently high expectations of attainment and behaviour, along with an ability to develop positive relationships with the children based upon mutual respect, are also extremely important. Due to the nature of the post, the successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the wider community of the school, including meeting parents and delivering a weekly afterschool club.
