I am delighted to be supporting an Outstanding Primary school in their hunt for a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) for a long term role. Start date is TBC. This is an exciting and exceptional opportunity for candidates to become fully involved in whole class teaching. We are looking for people who are confident in their abilities, to deliver learning and have impact on all pupils.

The post will primarily be covering PPA and release time for teachers or supporting teaching and learning across the school. You MUST have previous experience. HLTA or equivalent qualifications are desirable.

We are looking for someone with:
- A positive outlook who is able to ensure the children are at the heart of all your actions
- A passion for empowering children to reach their maximum potential
- Has experience of working with children with additional or special needs
- Excellent written and spoken communication skills

- Excellent organisational skills
- Ability to use own initiative and work as part of a team
- Ability to work in a highly pressured environment to meet demands and deadlines
- Willingness to work flexibly

The leadership of the headteacher, deputy headteacher and assistant headteachers is outstanding. They lead the school with energy and vigour and have developed the whole community. Behaviour is outstanding in classes and throughout the school, where there is a vibrant climate for learning. The school is a four form entry school and most pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. A large number of pupils speak English as an additional language.

Rated "Outstanding" last Ofsted 2013
