  • Previous experience working as a Teaching Assistant in a primary school setting, preferably within Key Stage 2.

  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to effectively liaise with students, parents, and colleagues.
  • Proactive and flexible approach to work, with excellent organisational skills and the ability to multitask in a dynamic classroom environment.
  • Knowledge of special educational needs (SEN) and experience in supporting students with additional learning requirements would be advantageous.
