A vacancy has arisen for two Higher Level Teaching Assistants within our school. Our school aims to deliver excellence and equality through a curriculum that develops the talents and potential of every child. 

Bolnore  Village Primary School is a school at the heart of the village community in Bolnore, and this is an exciting time to join our inclusive and child-centred school.  We pride ourselves on our whole-child ethos, promoting Learning Skills, Emotional Literacy, Attitudes and Feelings. 

Our staff support the learning of all children, including those with SEN.  If you believe that all children’s needs should be supported within a mainstream setting, and you have the skills to support children’s learning and their wider wellbeing, we would love to hear from you.

Like all schools, we need to work creatively to be able to offer the support children need as school budgets are squeezed.  We believe we can do this through a whole school passion for inclusion and a collaborative, solution-focused approach.  If you can contribute to this work, we can reward you with a real sense of success as well as a sense of team work and belonging.

The successful candidate should be willing to undertake any necessary training to enable them to carry out their role effectively, and a First Aid/Paediatric First Aid qualification is also desirable.

Please speak to Tracy Taylor (Headteacher), Nikki Elliott (Deputy Head) or Mr Gordon Maker (School Business Manager) directly if you are interested in this position, or call the School Office (01444 456715) to arrange an appointment. Job shares would be considered.
