'Happy, Helpful, Hard-working'

To start – as soon as possible

We are a popular, mainstream community school, which is part of Rainham Mark Education Trust. The school had a good Ofsted Inspection in November 2019, and was recognised as being Outstanding in the areas of Behaviour and Attitudes and Personal Development. The key values held by our school community add to the success and inclusive nature of the school.  These values are Enjoy, Achieve, Teamwork, Respect, Communicate, Independence and Resilience. The school has two integrated special provisions for a small number of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder or Visual Impairment, who are taught in the mainstream classes with appropriate support.

The Governing Body of Riverside Primary School are looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to work under the direction of teachers, to support teaching and learning across the Key Stages, from Foundation Stage to Year 6. He/she may also be expected to deliver intervention programmes under the direction of the Inclusion Manager.

The successful candidate will have NVQ Level 3 teaching assistant qualification or equivalent. Experience of working with children with Autism and/or Speech and Language difficulties would be an advantage, as well as understanding children with different behavioural needs.

He or she will have a sense of humour, a positive attitude and enjoy working as a proactive member of a team of teachers and assistants who put children at the centre of everything they do.  A desire to help children overcome barriers to learning is essential.

In return, we can offer you:

  • amazing children, who are ‘Happy, Helpful and Hard-working’,
  • opportunities to work across the primary sector as part of a growing school,
  • ongoing professional development with a particular focus on inclusion,
  • a supportive, dynamic and fun staff team,
  • excellent grounds and facilities.

This school is committed to recruiting with care and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS Check at the appropriate level will be required prior to any offer of employment and this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
