We are a closely knit community situated on the borders of Lambeth and Croydon; at Crown Lane, we work seamlessly with our neighbouring family of schools – however, what makes us so very special is the fact that we are a truly inclusive community and we are incredibly proud to be so!

We are a happy school and we delight in being friendly and approachable. We welcome families from every corner of the globe and more than 20 languages are spoken within our walls. These are celebrated at my weekly assemblies. While we are not a faith school, we recognise and respect every religion and we regularly have celebrations for events such as Easter, the Chinese New year, Diwali and Eid. We love diversity and we celebrate this at every available opportunity!

Although we are a mainstream school, we have children with a variety of special educational needs and we are fortunate enough to have a Specialist Autism Resource Base. We believe in regularly celebrating the successes of every member of our community, no matter how small. We continue to hold the award of ‘Centre of Excellence’ for our highly inclusive approach to how we work with our community.

We are looking for a highly motivated Teaching and Learning Assistant.

We want staff who are:

  • committed and hard working,
  • creative and innovative,
  • team members and leaders, and
  • committed to safeguarding.

We offer:

  • an exciting and inspiring way of working,
  • a supportive, team approach to teaching,
  • high Quality CPD, and
  • chances to develop leadership in all.

Successful candidates will be asked to apply for an Enhanced Disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau. Further information about the disclosure can be found at www.homeoffice.gov.uk/dbs and in the recruitment pack.
