We are always looking to increase our bank of supply Teaching Assistants who are available to work in school. Work may be on an ad hoc basis to cover for absent staff or regular work to cover in a class when a child from our school attends a teaching session in their local mainstream school supported by their own Teaching Assistant.

We would be interested in hearing from anyone that has a Child Care qualification equivalent to NVQ Level Two or higher, with good levels of literacy and numeracy. Experience will also be taken into account. Application forms along with the Health Declaration forms can be downloaded below and should be returned to school via email. All Supply Teaching Assistants must have a current enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)clearance, which can be facilitated by school. We would recommend joining the DBS update service.
