EYFS Named Child 1:1 Teaching Assistant (two posts)


Can you make a difference to our children? Are you able to quickly adapt learning strategies to enable all children to flourish?


We are looking for a teaching assistant to complement our team and work initially in EYFS. The role involves assisting the classroom teacher through support and inclusion of children, working with small groups and one to one, encouraging the children to become independent.


Our staff are creative, ambitious and child-centred and applicants must want to be part of our friendly and ambitious team. You will be given the opportunity to be part of a whole school team, with guidance and support. We are looking for a practitioner who is highly motivated and able to offer high quality education and care to our children. It is essential that you are able to work independently, as well as part of a team, and have excellent communication skills. And finally, if you are prepared to engage in lots of fun activities and get messy, you may be the person we are looking for.


You will be required to have the equivalent to a GCSE grade C in English and maths. You must be committed to upholding and supporting the school’s values and aims. First aid training would be an advantage, but training will be provided.


These roles are for named children.

Post One is daily from 10:30 to 13.30.

Post Two is initially for six hours a week, 09:00 – 15:00 (either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, we can be flexible) but it would be beneficial is the successful applicant was able to offer additional hours.


Townley School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this. An enhanced DBS with a barred list check will be required, and other procedures and online checks will be followed as part of our safeguarding procedures. The school is an equal opportunities employer.
