The Shade Primary School is looking to appoint a highly motivated and experienced Teaching Assistant.
We aim for all children to master knowledge and skills that bring a love of learning, achievement, confidence and independence. Our children are cared for and nurtured by skilled staff that engage effectively with them through high quality interaction, offering strong role-models to the children.
Children learn best when they feel happy, safe and secure. We believe they should be taught kindness, respect, resilience, honesty and emotional intelligence. We encourage curiosity and growth mindset is at the heart of our approach to learning.
Some children find learning a challenge and may have specific needs whilst others are ready for a challenge and for their learning to be deepened. This role will involve supporting, scaffolding and extending learning with support and advice from the class teacher and SENCo. If you have a desire to make a difference by supporting learning and are a good team player, then this post could be right for you.
