Teaching/Classroom Assistant

St Gerard’s requires a teaching assistant to work in its junior department, which has c.50 children ranging from reception to Year 6. The post is part-time job share, term-time only, 37 weeks divided into 3 terms, with the statutory paid holidays that accrue from this commitment. The hours are 8:15am – 4:15pm. The start date for the post will be 5th September 2017.


It is envisaged that the assistant will have the ability to support work being done in any part of the junior department, working under the direction of the teachers in each case. The school places great emphasis upon literacy and numeracy and so the teaching assistant will work with smaller groups within the class on these aspects.

Teaching assistants are also often asked to support learning more generally, either by ‘floating’ and acting as additional support during class activities or by working with specific groups of pupils. Teaching assistants usually quickly become very adept at identifying where in the class additional support is needed and once they are settled into their role there is often some degree of flexibility as the teaching assistant and teacher work together to ensure that their time and energy is best spent in a way that optimises learning for the class.

Below are some of the obvious ways in which the teaching assistant will provide effective service:

In addition to keeping things in good order, teaching assistants are also responsible for creating displays of pupils’ work. This is a real opportunity to get your creative juices flowing and is a great way to brighten up the classroom and celebrate the achievements of pupils.  Seeing their work beautifully displayed can be a fantastic ego boost to pupils so this is an important role. As well as displaying pupils’ work you may also be responsible for creating other displays for example about class rules, or pupil targets. You will work with the class teacher to decide how best to use the four walls of your classroom and your input will be invaluable and hugely appreciated by staff, pupils and visiting parents.
