Job Description

We are looking to recruit a learning support assistant (LSA) for a small primary school in the Amman Valley area. The ability to communicate with staff, pupils and parents in Welsh is essential and a high standard of written Welsh would also be beneficial. You will be required to work within the foundation phase, spending time in both the nursery and reception classes. This is a full time position although the school would consider a job share for the right applicant. Due to the disruption pupils have experienced over the last year the school would like someone who can commit until the end of this academic year.
