A welcoming and high-achieving primary academy in Barnet are looking for a teaching assistant to join their school ASAP to support in one of their reception classes.  

The Role

In this role you will be supporting all children within the class across a range of learning activities and working closely with the class teacher. The role has become available due to the high number of pupils in the class with Special Educational Needs so a large proportion of your day will be supporting them. This will be in whole class sessions, within small groups and during play-based learning activities. Your role will also include some 1 to 1 support sessions and interventions in speech and language, social skills and development programmes. The school will provide training to support you in your role. 

The school are looking for a confident and reliable Teaching Assistant who can commit to supporting the children in reception for the full academic year. The school are interested in applications from teaching assistants with previous experience as well as graduates and those with experience working with young children in another capacity.  

The School

This 3-form entry primary school is part of a larger all-through academy based in Barnet. The primary school opened in 2013 and now is a popular choice for families in the local community. The school employs a curriculum that enables all to make rapid academic progress across a range of subject areas with an emphasis on reading, writing and numeracy. Behaviour at the school is very good and there are high expectations of pupils and staff alike. The school works closely with the attached secondary school and there is a supportive and established leadership team in place. As a large school within an academy, there is good access to professional development opportunities and training.
