  • possess good literacy and numeracy skills;

  • have a good sense of humour

We should like you to:

  • work under direct supervision by the class teacher and at times, use your own initiative to organise activities and tasks;
  • use initiative and contribute to creating a stimulating and purposeful learning environment;
  • work in partnership with other teaching assistants
  • support the class teacher in planning differentiated work for the pupils;
