Monday – Friday 12.30pm – 3.15pm


This is initially a fixed term post, supporting a named child but may involve working with small groups of children under the guidance of class teacher/SENCO.


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.  We require the successful applicant to undertake an enhanced Criminal Record check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
