We are looking for individuals who are flexible with their working hours and are confident in assisting classroom teachers with preparations and activities to ensure all pupils are working to the best of their ability.

All though a qualification within the educational field would be beneficial, it is not essential. However previous experience of working with children in any environment is needed.
