Is your passion supporting primary age children with varied ability levels? Are you looking for an exciting new role within a large, popular and thriving Inner City school? If so, and you can demonstrate that you are passionate about maximising our children’s learning potential, then this role could be for you.

This is an exciting role for the right person to join our large, friendly and incredibly dedicated team of teaching assistants, supporting teaching staff and pupils across our School.  We require a qualified and experienced teaching assistant who ideally has recent experience within Early Years, KS1 and KS2 phases with a strong working knowledge of phase curriculums.

You will be assisting with supervision of the pupils in the classroom, in groups and 1:1 when required. You will ideally have experience of working with children with physical and educational difficulties.  You will be able to demonstrate resilience and calm in stressful situations, focussing on solutions with patience, kindness and empathy.  The successful candidate must hold an appropriate Level 3 qualification.

We are a large 643 place primary (which includes 20 children in our 2 year old unit and 78 in our 3 year old nursery), with a rich ethnic mix of delightful and well-behaved children. Our modern school has been refurbished and extensively extended and sits in large attractive grounds.  We pride ourselves in our caring ethos and the value we place in our dedicated and friendly staff teams.  We are a popular school, and have a waiting list for most year groups.

DDAT welcomes a diverse population of both children and staff and is committed to promoting and developing equality of opportunity in all its functions.

DDAT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to satisfactory references, online checks, completion of a probationary period, pre-employment and Disclosure Barring Service checks.
