Primary Teaching Assistant – Key Stage 2

Ark John Keats is an exceptional school looking to hire exceptional people. 

We are a genuinely all-through school, from Nursery to 6th Form, providing an exciting and innovative education for the local community we serve. Ofsted state we are outstanding, our GCSE outcomes show our pupils make brilliant progress and our application numbers make us one of the most over-subscribed schools. We have grown every year since we opened in 2013 and will finally have pupils from age 3 to 18 by September 2020. 

We work to ensure our pupils have the same opportunities for success as those in affluent areas with expensive private schooling. We know our pupils will need more than just great exam results to be successful and have carefully planned each stage of development to support them to build the character, independence and discipline to make the most of the opportunities their academic qualifications will provide.

We are looking for ambitious and committed Teaching Assistants to join our Key Stage 2 primary team. In this role you will be responsible for supporting the class teacher to deliver great teaching. There will also be the opportunity to lead whole class teaching and we are very keen to hear from candidates who are considering becoming teachers. Ark runs a teacher training programme and a number of our TAs have followed this route into teaching.

Our staff are incredibly aligned and motivated. Our approach is underpinned by our six pillars – A Mastery Curriculum, High Quality Teaching, Strong Discipline, Character Development, Raising Aspirations & Enrichment and Developing Education Leaders. 

Joining Ark John Keats means being part of a kind and supportive team, who are always working hard to be even better. As a school, we make more time for professional development: 14 days of training across the year, dedicated CPD every Wednesday afternoon and regular individual coaching. As part of the Ark network, we also have access to training programmes to develop staff at all levels.

We are currently searching for passionate and knowledgeable Key Stage 2 specialist teachers for English, maths, science and the humanities to join our primary team. We have planned backwards from the knowledge and skills needed to study these subjects at university. Our curriculum is coherent, content rich and cumulative – enabling our pupils to become great readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, historians and geographers.
