Job description

To apply for this role, you must have some experience of working in a school environment whether that is in primary, secondary or SEN schools on a voluntary or paid basis. I am currently recruiting for an experienced Teaching Assistant in Ely and the surrounding areas to work on a long-term basis in a mainstream primary school. You should expect to work with pupils between the ages of 5-11 years, with a mixture of academic levels and additional needs (Autism, ADHD, and Dyslexia).

Initially you will work on a temporary, long-term basis. However, you will have the opportunity to gain a permanent contract with the school.

Supporting the learning and development of the pupil will be your main duty alongside assisting the class teacher with preparation of resources as and when required. We require passionate and caring individuals who have personal or professional experience of working with children.

A working day generally starts on or after 8.30am and ends at 3.30pm. Many of our schools do offer additional training, which means if you are working long-term, some days you may be required to stay later than 3.30pm.
