Level 2 Teaching Assistants

The team at Laburnum Primary School are seeking enthusiastic, committed and learning focussed teaching assistants, to join us.

Start date 1.9.2021     Level 2: NJC Pay Scale 3-4

Would you like to work in a values based school where positive relationships are prioritised and the personal development and well-being of our staff and pupils is equally as important as academic achievement? In a forward thinking school, where professional development is a priority and decisions are made based on evidence and their potential to impact on the quality of education?

Would you like to work in a school that has high expectations of its staff and learners, embraces a challenge mentality and knows that every child can succeed? In a community focused school where you can challenge preconceptions and make a genuine difference to our children’s social and educational outcomes?

If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of these questions, then Laburnum would love to hear from you, because we are looking for teaching assistants who can genuinely support our school mission:

School Mission - CARE: Challenge – Achieve – Respect - Effort

At Laburnum we challenge all learners to work hard and achieve as individuals across a broad and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all we do. Our children are nurtured to show respect for themselves, others and the wider community by developing positive relationships built on our school values.
