Christ Church Primary SW9 is a small inclusive school in North Brixton with a fantastic outdoor learning environment; we are part of the SW9 Partnership, a small federation of two one-form entry, Church of England primary schools.

Our purpose is to provide a rich and creative curriculum, with high standards within a small, inclusive school – children, staff and governors are committed to the school ethos, which is built on working together to ensure the best outcomes for all our children.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and motivated Teaching Assistant to join our talented and supportive team.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • supporting groups of children or individuals during the classroom teaching,
  • leading groups of children or 1:1 intervention programmes, and
  • working with children to support any social, emotional, behavioural, personal care or medical needs.

Applications from graduate trainees who wish to embark on a teacher training course in the future are welcomed and encouraged – please contact the school for more information.

We are looking for:

  • someone who believes in the inclusion of all children,
  • someone who is willing to work closely with the class teacher to build up a strong partnership,
  • someone who is able to communicate effectively with all members of the school community,
  • a flexible and enthusiastic team-player,
  • someone who is friendly and approachable, and
  • someone with good numeracy and literacy skills of a high enough standard to support throughout the school.

We can offer you:

  • a supportive and positive working environment,
  • happy, creative children who love coming to school and enjoy learning,
  • opportunities for professional development and working as part of the wider team across the SW9 Partnership,
  • an exceptional school, with strong parent and professional relationships, at the heart of our local community, and
  • the opportunity to apply for a trainee teacher position in the future for the right candidate through the School Direct programme.
