Due to the school being open for lettings on a Saturday it requires working every other Saturday 8.00am – 1.00pm (not required for statutory holidays etc) This will be paid at 1.25 hourly rate.  

We are a vibrant school community and welcome applications from positive and enthusiastic candidates with experience and a proven track record.


Lunchtime Support Assistants - Grade 2

We are looking to appoint Lunchtime Support Assistants to provide high quality support over lunchtime, supporting healthy eating, a range of lunchtime clubs, feeding and changing students as appropriate.



Please note: In the current circumstances as a school we have to prioritise maintaining a COVID secure environment in all our operating procedures.  We will equally apply this to all our recruitment procedures.

However, all candidates will have to be flexible to the realities that we may have to change the recruitment process at short notice possibly due to last minute self isolation of bubbles, classes or individuals involved in our recruitment process.  Unfortunately such circumstances are beyond our control.
