Primary School Teaching Assistant
We are looking for a talented Teaching Assistant to join our Primary School Team.
Aylesford School and Sixth Form College opened its doors to Primary age children in September 2015. The Primary Phase has established a flexible and creative curriculum which reflects a passion for active learning and promotes real life contexts at every opportunity.
The new building is practical, bright and offers an attractive environment for staff to meet the varying needs of all children. The demands of an inspirational education in the 21st Century are met within seven classrooms, three group rooms, two large shared spaces and a spacious hall.
Outside you will find a substantial playground, as well as a generous outdoor classroom to enrich the Early Years Foundation Stage provision.
The dedicated team have worked hard to create a caring and nurturing environment knowing that children’s emotions are key; when they feel safe, secure and supported learning is at its most successful. Aylesford Primary is a place where pupils are valued, understood and consulted. Promoting a positive attitude to school, respect for all and a lifelong love of learning is at the heart of the Academy’s vision.
As Aylesford Primary has grown so has its reputation within the community and beyond for an outstanding education. This is reflected in the high demand for Reception places, with over 115 applications for September 2019.
