Teaching Assistant

Part Time Permanent
John F Kennedy Catholic School

The Governors are looking for an enthusiastic, adaptable and committed person to join the staff of this popular, oversubscribed and successful school as a Teaching Assistant.

The post involves supporting teachers with their everyday work in the classroom and helping students with a variety of SEND who need additional support in order to complete tasks. Previous experience of working in a school would be an advantage but not essential.

JFK has been awarded an SSAT ‘Educational Outcomes Award’ for the second year running, in recognition of the 2015 GCSE exam results; for being in the top 20% of non-selective schools nationally in terms of average grades achieved by students. In addition, we have been invited to join ‘Leading Edge’, the national network reserved for high performing schools.

We welcome applications from candidates of all faiths and none, though support for our Catholic ethos is expected.

To apply – you are asked to complete the attached CES application form in full but instead of a supporting statement please write a letter of application which relates your experience to the job description and person specification. In your letter you should also outline your personal educational philosophy, your vision and the contribution that you can make to John F Kennedy Catholic School.

Please email your completed application forms to efinal@jfk.herts.sch.uk.

Applications should be submitted immediately and candidates will be considered and potentially called for interview as applications are received. The school reserves the right to close the vacancy at any time.

Closing date: 9.00am, Friday 10th July 2020

Interview date: ASAP

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be required.
