Fixed term for one year
Pupil specific funding dependent

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dedicated HLTA/Classroom Assistant to work with a pupil with SEN from October 2019.  Due to the nature of the support required by the pupil, there will be an element of HLTA work alongside that of a classroom assistant role – both job descriptions are attached.

This is a fixed term post to 31 August 2020 and is dependent on pupil specific funding.

We can offer you:

  • A successful and ambitious school
  • A skilled, friendly, supportive and professional team of staff
  • The opportunity to work in an all-through school
  • A fantastic rural location.

Litcham is a small, successful and rapidly growing all-through school. Children enjoy their time with us and are very keen to learn. At our last inspection, Ofsted judged us to be good with areas of outstanding practice.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If appointed, you will be required to undertake a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check and comply with child protection policies and practices. You will also need to provide two satisfactory references.

Visits to the school are strongly encouraged. Please contact Rhonda Taylor-Balls, Headteacher’s PA, to arrange.

Closing date for applications:  Monday 30th September 2019

Interview: week commencing 7th October 2019

To apply, please send your completed application form and a letter of application (maximum 2 sides of A4) outlining why you are the right person for this position.
