Monday – Friday, 8.50am - 3.30pm (with 1 hour unpaid lunch break). Term time only.

Required from September 2020.

As God’s family we nurture and inspire our children by broadening their horizons as they learn. Through rich and varied experiences, we enable them to be a loving and caring influence on our world.

St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School is a welcoming and vibrant Primary School situated in Lowestoft. Staff, parents and governors are very proud of the school and recognise it is a delightful place to grow and learn.

The school was a founding member in May 2016 of the St John the Baptist Catholic Multi Academy Trust. The school shares an Executive Head with another local Catholic school and there is a tradition of long established joint support between the two schools and the aspiration to share more leadership, staffing, CPD and vision to be the best possible environments for learning, growth and spiritual development.

We have a vacancy for a teaching assistant, preferably with suitable experience in supporting speech and language needs, to work in a Year 2 class from September 2020, providing intensive support for a child both individually and within small groups.  The ability to work closely with the class teacher and the staff team is essential. Experience with speech sounds and visual phonics would be an advantage.  Further training and support will be provided from outreach speech and language support.

We are looking for:

  • experience of supporting a range of speech and language needs
  • knowledge of speech and language support structures such as visual phonics                                 
  • evidence of CPD in the area of speech and language support

We can offer you:

  • friendly and enthusiastic children
  • excellent support from our dedicated team of staff
  • a commitment to on-going professional development
  • strong links with the community and church
  • a school committed to staff well-being.
