Wooden Hill Primary and Nursery School is looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and committed General Support Assistant to join their dynamic team. The support staff at Wooden Hill School have specific roles, which enhance the learning by supporting a particular aspect of teaching and learning. Support staff are no longer expected to cram many things into their day’s work, with the frustration of feeling that it’s had little impact, but instead have clear and precise job descriptions and a sense of satisfaction of a job well done, knowing that they have made a difference.

Are you an experienced Teaching Assistant who is looking for a change?
If so you could be just what we are looking for. 

This is a varied role with no two days the same; where the successful candidate will work with individuals and small groups of children, from across the school. It may be going over something which the children have done in class that morning or it may be pre-teaching ahead of the class learning and is predominately to ensure that all children keep up with the class learning. 

We can offer you:

  • a permanent contract
  • a large, strong, committed and supportive staff team
  • happy and enthusiastic children who are eager to learn
  • an exciting opportunity to contribute to a visionary and forward thinking school in its journey of growth

If you require any further information about the role or would like to come for a visit please contact Jacinda Revill, School Business Manager on 01344 421117 or email

Applications can be made online; visit

Closing date: 24th March 2019.
Interviews to take place shortly after.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people, and expects all staff to share this commitment. These posts are subject to a satisfactory DBS enhanced disclosure certificate.
