Highbury Primary School is a very good school with a rich and vibrant school life, where children feel safe and happy.  We want an energetic, enthusiastic, committed and friendly person to join our team.

You will have a flexible, “can do” attitude and it will be obvious you take pride in your work.  The successful candidate will need to be a team player but also able to use their own initiative. You will have previous experience within a primary school or similar setting.

You will need a good knowledge and understanding of how to support learning for children and building effective relationships with children, staff and parents. You will assist with reading, writing and number tasks, and other activities to support learning outcomes.  With good interpersonal and communication skills, you will be organised, flexible and have the presence to inspire confidence and trust so as to develop and nurture independence. Previous experience with working with pupils with social, emotional and behaviour difficulties is desirable.

In return, you will find a rewarding role and be part of the University of Chichester Multi-Academy Trust offering added benefits and opportunities. Each of our academies has a unique identity, but a shared belief in creating a positive and enriching environment, where all staff feel valued.
