Job/Person Summary

We are seeking to appoint two exceptional teaching assistants to join the Riggs Unit at Malmesbury Park Primary Academy. The role involves working under the direct instruction of teaching/senior staff, usually in the classroom with the teacher, to support access to learning for pupils and provide general support to the teacher in the management of pupils and the classroom.

The ideal candidate will be hard working, friendly and outgoing. They will have an enthusiasm for working with children, particularly those with special educational needs. They will have a talent for engaging with sometimes complex children, encouraging social interaction, developing independence, self esteem and encouraging all individuals to achieve their goals.

The right person will be confident in dealing with challenging behaviour and understanding complex special educational needs. A qualification to support children with high needs would be helpful.

At Malmesbury Park Primary Academy, we believe every child deserves the very best education, opportunities to shine and the chance to achieve their hopes and dreams. We place learning at the heart of all we do, driving this through the development of our six learning values (Thinking, Independence, Collaboration, Creativity, Spirituality and Emotional Intelligence) within the school curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of our learners, providing them with rich, memorable and meaningful experiences.

We offer a stimulating, exciting, enriching curriculum designed to challenge, motivate and inspire children. Underpinned by the school ethos and learning values, our curriculum is broad, balanced and ensures continuity and progression in key skills, knowledge and understanding. Our curriculum, taught through an integrated approach, ensures learning becomes meaningful, relevant and purposeful and supported by the discrete teaching of maths, PE, MFL and Music ensures subject specific skills are delivered to a high standard. A wide range of opportunities and experiences are offered - visits out (including residential trips), having ‘experts in their field’ working in school alongside the children and engaging with the local community. These opportunities enrich the curriculum and support understanding of how skills learnt in school are applied in the world of work whilst ensuring children develop both personal and academic skills and achieve success.

We are a very diverse community, with over thirty-eight languages being spoken within the school. This is something we celebrate and welcome as it brings with it a rich and varied culture.
