Teaching Assistant

Job description


Are you someone with experience as a Teaching Assistant, and able to travel to Leyton? If so, then this position to support learning in a Year 6 class starting as soon as possible may be the perfect role for you.

You need:

  • Experience as a KS2 TA.
  • Experience taking small groups.
  • Experience in dealing with challenging behaviour.

An Ofsted rated GOOD school in Leyton need an experienced TA in their Year 6 class for the rest of this year. This is because they usually have one TA spread across both year 6 classes, as the school is 2-form entry. However, there are some children in this yeargroup in both classes who can be disruptive, and therefore the school feel it would be beneficial to have a TA placed full-time in both classes to improve their behaviour and concentration. The Year 6 teacher is very experienced in KS2 and has taught the same yeargroup in the school since 2015, and therefore would provide excellent support to any new member of staff in the class.

In regards to the class, behaviour is not especially extreme but can be loud and boisterous at times. The school therefore need someone who can be relied upon to remain calm and further support the teaching of the class teacher by identifying when children may provide distractions, and intervening to prevent this from happening. Therefore it is vital that the candidate in question has experience in KS2 classes so they are used to building and nurturing relationships with children of this age. The school would also find it extremely valuable to have someone with experience of taking small groups of 5/6 at a time for some more focused intervention work. This would be very useful as the class teacher may then utilise the chosen TA to work with children who have weaknesses in specific areas.

If you are looking for a role in a nice, welcoming school, and have experience in KS2 and with smaller groups then please apply where indicated. We at Teaching Personnel will liaise with the school once they have selected their favoured applicants to arrange interviews and trials as soon as possible.

All applicants will require the appropriate qualifications and training for this role. Please see for details.

All pay rates quoted will be inclusive of 12.07% statutory holiday pay. This advert is for a temporary position. In some cases, the option to make this role permanent may become available at a later date.

Teaching Personnel is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We offer all our registered candidates FREE child protection and prevent duty training. All candidates must undertake or have undertaken a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. Full assistance provided.
