Grade 6 £21,748 - £24,491 pro rata
Required from September 2021

The Governors of Woodham Burn Community Primary School and Nursery wish to appoint an enthusiastic and caring Experienced Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join this popular and successful primary school. The post is to provide support for children mostly in Early Years and Key Stage 1. The successful applicant will cover PPA time for teachers in 5 classes Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.

The role will include planning, delivering and assessing the work of groups and whole classes (with support for the class teacher).

Experience is essential as the successful applicant will be required to work with up to a full class of children and will be required to use their own initiative.

Essential Qualifications: NVQ 3 or equivalent plus HLTA status.

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of a satisfactory DBS check and checks under Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2018.

Calculation of term time only plus two weeks’ pay

Term time only plus two additional weeks’ pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Two additional weeks, inclusive of CPD – 2 weeks; plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service.
Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave.
Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
For example:

Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 46.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
40 weeks (term time plus 2) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 47.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Where our roles are customer facing and you are required to speak to members of the public, the ability to converse at ease with customers and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential for the post. As a disability confident employer, we are committed to employing disabled people and people with health conditions making reasonable adjustments to support disabled applicants when required.
