Springfield Junior School are currently looking for a Level 2 Teaching Assistant to join our team. The successful candidate will be required to work where needed to support children across the Key Stage 2 age range, including our ERS unit.

Flexible and committed Teaching and Learning Assistant

Are you passionate about working to support young children, some of whom may have a range of additional needs? Are you confident in working with children? Are you looking to join a friendly team who are committed to the learning and development of children?  If so, we have the role for you. 

The candidate must have experience and be able to build strong relationships and have high expectations for all children. They should be resilient, calm, kind and able to use their initiative as well as displaying strong behaviour management skills.  Experience of working with children with SEND is desirable.  Please read the person specification and job description very carefully and ensure you fit the criteria.

Springfield Junior School is a proud member of QEGSMAT. The Trust’s values are for students to ‘Question, Explore; Give; and Succeed’. Our exceptional staff, strong leadership, motivated children, as well as excellent facilities, provide the successful formula for this.

At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every pupil to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.

Why work for us?

  • At QEGSMAT, we value the hard work and dedication of our team members, and as such we believe that progression should be a simple process.  That’s why we are proud to offer an Automatic Pay Review program, rather than the traditional annual pay and performance review, as part of our comprehensive benefits package.

We are committed to providing first-rate training and development to all our staff within this evolving Trust. We are committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination, and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
  • All staff have access to our Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential, independent, and unbiased information and guidance 24/7. This can also include bespoke counselling sessions for staff if needed.
  • All roles are subject to nationally agreed terms and conditions of service.
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) with employer contributions of 23.68% for support staff.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Access to Flu Vaccines.
  • Opportunity to work flexibly.

QEGSMAT is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
