Further information

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and flexible Playworker to join our amazing team at our popular Out of School Club based in King Edward Primary School. Our club is open 51 weeks a year, closing for one week at Christmas, so the post is for a full year position. This will involve working before and after school times during term time and all day throughout the school holidays. While the post is for 16 hours, we anticipate there will be significant scope for additional hours, especially during school holidays. This is determined on a weekly basis in response to the number of children booked into the club for each session.

We are extremely proud of our provision which is highly praised by parents and Ofsted. We envisage the successful candidates to hold the minimum of a Level 3 Childcare / Playworker qualification and to undertake the following duties:

• Make effective use of opportunities to provide play activities to support the development of children’s skills and experiences.
• Establish productive working relationships with children, acting as a role model and setting high expectations for behaviour.
• Work with management to establish an appropriate play environment.
• Be aware of and support difference and ensure all children have equal access to opportunities to play, learn and develop.
• Work cooperatively with colleagues within the club and across the school more widely.

For further details about the club and for application information, please see the ‘OOSC’ section of our website.

Application should be returned by email only to oosc@kingedward.org no later than 12.00pm on Friday 23rd August and we will be holding interviews week commencing 26th August 2019.
