Pocklington Community Junior School are looking to recruit 3 enthusiastic, dedicated and motivated people to join our committed team of teaching assistants. The role will be to work primarily with children with additional needs who are joining us in Year 3 at a critical time in their school career, but may also involve small group work. We are looking for candidates who are confident in their subject knowledge especially of literacy and numeracy and have a firm but warm style when working with children and who are able to work professionally with the families. A working knowledge and interest in autism in children will be viewed advantageously.

Our school has invested significant time and energy into defining what it is we believe is right for the children in our care. Our whole school ethos revolves around our school values and drives everything we do – including how we teach, how our curriculum is planned, and how we treat each other. It is vital that the successful applicant not only understands what these values are and why they are important to the school, but shares our belief that each and every value is important in order for children to develop into well-rounded young people ready for the next stage in their lives.

Visits to the school prior to application are strongly encouraged and all the contact details you may require, along with other information about our school, are available on our website; www.pocklingtonjuniors.co.uk.

  • Is a warm and engaging person, who is able to work hard on developing positive relationships
