Teaching Assistant

Wigan, Greater Manchester
Tradewind Preston is working in partnership with a 'Good' Wigan Primary School to recruit for an EYFS Trained Teaching Assistant to provide whole class and small group support. This is an ideal school to build your career in as a Teaching Assistant, where staff and pupils are extremely welcoming, friendly and caring.

This is a happy, caring school where they place a great emphasis on fostering good relationships between children, staff, parents and the wider community. The school have strong parish links and believe these links help our children learn, grow and develop. Their enthusiastic staff are committed to delivering a challenging, inspiring and creative curriculum and they work hard alongside the children to ensure they achieve their full potential in all areas of school life.

Children start Nursery with skills which are typically below that for their age, particularly in speech and language development. Pupils make good progress from their starting points because the environment is welcoming and provides pupils with a range of different activities to engage them. Links are made to the topic pupils are learning. Some children were enjoying making currant buns out of dough while others were counting buns in the mathematics area.

Many children who attend Nursery join the Reception class and are joined by several children starting from different settings, including home. As children move through the Reception Year, they continue to make good progress and most children reach a good level of development and are ready to start Year 1. The proportion of children reaching a good level of development has increased over the last two years and reflects the continued improvements to the provision in early years.

The ideal candidate for this role will be able to demonstrate excellent EYFS based curriculum knowledge. You must have a minimum of 12 months classroom-based experience and have excellent classroom-based references. This is a full-time role, starting in September 2018. The successful candidate will be required to provide small group and whole class support across the EYFS setting. You will be responsible for delivering and assessing small group 'Read, Write, Inc' Phonics up to Phase 1, supporting Guided Reading on a daily basis and monitoring pupil progression to ensure all learning targets are being met.
