Beacon Academy is part of the Kernow Learning Trust. Our friendly primary school is a 2-form entry with over 440 pupils on roll. We are a nurturing school, where every child is encouraged to “Shine brightly”. Strong links with the local community and the other schools within the Trust, along with skilled, dedicated staff make this an exciting and rewarding school to be part of.
We seek an enthusiastic and committed Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join our team of skilled HLTAs.
This HLTA role is only suitable for experienced practitioners. The HLTA will complement the work of the teacher, by taking responsibility for the delivery of agreed curriculum areas in order to allow class teachers to access their PPA time, and delivery of the school’s phonics scheme, in addition to the normal teaching assistant role in a school. The successful applicant will be experienced in dealing with challenging behaviour.
The successful candidate will be expected to meet HLTA national standards or hold equivalent skills, expertise or experience. Excellent numeracy/literacy skills equivalent to NVQ level 2 in English and Maths, and IT skills sufficient to advance pupils' learning are essential for these positions.
This role plays a crucial role in the life of Beacon. We are proud of our pupils’ achievements and we are looking for people who are able to help us continue to move our school forward. If you would like to be part of a team that always puts children first, we would like to hear from you.
Kernow Learning Trust has a commitment to safeguarding children and the successful applicants will be required to share this commitment and will undergo checks including an enhanced DBS disclosure.
