Salary: £14,000 p.a. or £16,000 p.a. if also work in Wrap Around Care (WAC) each morning.

The School is seeking two Gap Students to support teachers in various parts of the school. The posts will mainly involve working as a member of the Sports department and in particular supporting either the Director or Deputy Director of Sport. The School’s main aim is to provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced, covering the academic, artistic and physical elements that are crucial for the development of the whole child.

This role is a great opportunity for those who are planning a career working with young people and who need experience to get their first job or get onto a course.  You can prepare for a career working with children and demonstrate the impact you can have on their lives.  It is a one-year post which gives you an insight into a range of roles on offer in schools. You will help with administrative work, lunch duties, sports arrangements, lessons and matches. You will learn to plan, organise, support, extend and enrich the lives of children and be a reliable team player and will work with children in all age ranges from the Nursery to Prep. The Gap student will start the day with Breakfast Club which operates daily from 7.30 a.m. but this is an additional part of the role and is flexible. You may need to work occasional evenings and weekends to support fixtures.

We set high principles of learning for all children in a caring and supportive environment, and you will help to promote our ethos in encouraging enquiring minds and building pupil’s strengths, interests and experiences. In addition, you will be required to set and maintain high educational and moral standards, undertake other appropriate duties as may be required, participate in and organise extra-curricular activities and support the school in all its many and varied activities. You will also promote and safeguard the welfare of children and young persons for who you are responsible and with whom you come into contact. We pride ourselves in fostering excellent home/school relationships with parents and you will be expected to have strong communication skills.

No particular qualifications are required but good GCSEs, a keen interest in Sport and working with children are all essential. As well as a generous salary, you will be entitled to breakfast (if working in WAC) and lunch.
