                        Actual Salary £15580


Are you passionate about inclusion and improving outcomes for children? We are! Every child needs a champion who will both cherish and challenge them… could this be you?  


St Mary’s isn’t just a school; it’s a brave, forward-thinking family in which children come first. Staff here know that their work can change lives and because of this, we strive to be at the forefront of primary education. It is our unequivocal belief that all children should be given the very best chance to succeed and live life in all its fullness. As a Teaching Assistant, you will be responsible for supporting pupils with SEND, delivering interventions and leading learning for small groups/individuals across the school.


To sustain you in this crucial role, we will:

  • provide a comprehensive induction programme
  • grow your skills through our ‘Deliberate Professional Empowerment Programme’


We’ve worked hard to build a research-based approach to learning, progressive curriculum and innovative learning environments. Likewise, we’re looking for a Teaching Assistant who shares our values and is willing to go the extra mile: someone who is altruistic, tenacious and ambitious for all our children. This role demands real dedication and an unwavering commitment to our community. In return, you’ll find reward in our warm-hearted spirit, collegiate approach and, most importantly, in seeing our children achieve a sense of self-fulfilment.


St Mary’s is a proud partner academy of SNMAT. Being part of this Trust is unlike working for others because they share our drive to provide the very best quality of education for our children. We are not bound by corporate colours or policies, meaning that your input could truly make a difference to our provision. 


If you’re interested in working with us, then please call the school for an informal discussion with our Headteacher and to arrange an appointment to look around.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and would expect anyone joining our school to share the same ethos.  All candidates are subject to safer recruitment procedures. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
