Early Years Teaching assistant

Job description

Do you have experience working with children from 2-5 years of age? Are you a qualified Nursery nurse or Early Years Teaching Assistant? Can you travel to Wakefield? If so, then we have an ideal role for you!

A school in WF2 in Wakefield need to further assist their Early Years provision full-time until the end of the year (July 2021), and need someone ideally who has previous experience working with children aged 2-5 years in a professional capacity. The school is easy to get to on the bus from central Wakefield and also has plenty of parking space for staff. This is a warm, friendly and welcoming school that received GOOD at its last Ofsted in 2019. The school need someone to provide extra assistance in the class as soon as the children return to school. Therefore the start date for this role is to be confirmed in the coming weeks. 

The school need someone with experience of working in Early Years or with children aged 2-5 years in the last 12 months, so that they can be trusted to get going in the role straight away without any training. This would involve experience with phonics programmes, particularly Jolly Phonics (which the school uses), as well as guided play. There are also some children in the class with Special Educational needs and although there are a number of assistants in the class, experience of working with Special needs would also go a long way for the school.

If you are experienced in Early Years teaching assistant / Nursery nurse and are free full-time from when schools return (TBC) until the end of the year, and can travel to Wakefield, then please apply where indicated and submit an up-to-date CV detailing your previous roles.

We will then be in touch!
