Teaching Assistant

Salary Scale: Scale 2 or Scale 3 (Points 3-6) dependant on experience and responsibilities

Actual Salary £15,389 - £16159

Responsible To: Special Education Needs Coordinator

Contract type: Term Time only, 30 hours per week

Charlton is an 11-16 comprehensive school, well established in the heart of its local community. We are a truly comprehensive school, admitting children from over 20 primary schools, with students’ prior attainment at KS2 broadly in line with National Average, with a slight bias towards higher ability range.

At Charlton we take pride in students’ progress, with learning at the heart of all we do. We know the importance of inspiring students to develop a thirst for learning, so our curriculum is broad, rich and matched to individuals’ needs.

Our emphasis on purposeful, relevant learning means that our students benefit from a range of visits, specialist teaching and extensive extra-curricular experiences. We aim for all our students to enjoy school, excel in their studies and attain outstanding outcomes.

Charlton’s Vision – Building Knowledge, Developing Character, Inspiring Futures

Our vision is to nurture happy, healthy young people who have the knowledge, academic achievement and strength of character to lead safe and successful lives in modern Britain, preparing them for their next steps in education or employment with a thirst for lifelong learning.


Charlton’s Values

At Charlton our ethos is built upon our three core values, we expect all members of the Charlton community to always exhibit these values:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience

We are tremendously proud of our school building. It provides first rate facilities, purpose-built for the 21st century. Our new build school opened in June 2016 and was the last school in the country to be completed under the Building Schools for the Future scheme.

Additional investment in state-of-the-art ICT, Sports, Expressive Arts, Science and Technology, have been a great boost to students’ already rich curriculum of Foreign Languages, Humanities, English and Maths. We firmly believe that the new facilities will further strengthen our high performance across the school.

The school joined the Learning Communities Trust as an academy in December 2018. This is a multi-academy trust set up to serve the needs of the students in the Wellington and Hadley areas of Telford. This is an exciting development for the school, and we are already seeing the benefits of collaborating with other schools.

Following a recent Ofsted inspection (May 2023), the school has been judged to be good overall and good in all the separate judgement areas. We are delighted with the outcome, and that the dedication and hard work of our students and staff has been rightly recognised.

We are offering an exciting opportunity for a Teaching Assistant to join our successful team.

As a member of our team, you will focus on ensuring great outcomes for our students including those with SEND and disabilities.

The role includes working under the instruction and guidance of teaching/senior staff to undertake work, care and support programmes, to enable access to learning for pupils and to assist the teacher in the management of pupils and the classroom. Work may be carried out in the classroom or outside the main teaching. Some students require support with some personal care.

There is also the opportunity for the right candidate to take on additional responsibilities.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic and who can inspire the children to be passionate about their learning.

Our school is an equal opportunity employer, so we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children and individuals. This post is subject to a DBS Enhanced Disclosure.

If you have a passion for teaching, we would love to hear from you!
