Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School is an excellent school the children are happy and thriving. The dedication and hard work from the entire school team is outstanding and clear to see. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Presence of Teachers and caretakers at pick up and drop off really help you feel safe. The well-being of the pupils is outstanding. They have gone above and beyond to make sure my children have felt safe at school. My child is happy to come to school, the staff are visible and approachable. It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Highly visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. Supportive school for both parents and children. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not!


Teaching Assistant


30 hours per week, permanent, term-time only, to start as soon as possible. 

Grade 3 to point 11 (£18,271 FTE max)


Due to the increasing complexity of needs of our younger children we are looking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to our hard working team to support pupils and teachers initially in key stage 1 and Reception, but deployment may be in other years according to the school's needs. The role may require 1:1 support and the successful candidate must be flexible and willing to accomodate this.

We expect the successful candidate to have a friendly, nuturing nature with a high degree of emotional literacy and be able to develop strong relationships with colleagues and pupils. The successful candidate must also demonstrate strong literacy and numeracy skills (at least GCSE Maths and English), who is confident with using IT to support learning. You will have high expectations of pupils and an understanding of how to help children to develop as independent learners.  


Our children deserve someone with:

*a mature attitude and infinite patience

*excellent communication skills, both written and spoken

*a caring and calm nature

*an excellent attendance record


You will be required to support children's educational, social and emotional development.  There are sometimes aspects of physical development that require support i.e. toileting needs, supporting pupils who have a medical need, and training would be provided.  Prior experience in a childcare/educational setting would be advantageous but a commitment to the post and the children is much more important. 


What can we give you?

  • The opportunity to support a fantastic group of children who love coming to school and are keen to learn and grow
  • The chance to work with pupils in the class, in intervention groups, in our Forest School area and on the playground
  • The chance to develop in your role through high quality CPD. 
  • The opportunity to be part of a community with high aspirations and a sense of fun.
  • For exceptional Teaching Assistants, the school may support progression routes through to gaining formal teaching qualifications


Closing date noon Friday 15th October - interviews Wednesday 20th October.
