Job Opportunities – Teaching Assistant

Level 2 – SCP 15-17 


26.25 hours per week (Monday to Friday 9am-3pm)


We are looking for a Teaching Assistant to join our team at Applegarth Academy. The successful candidate is likely to have experience of working within a school setting and be highly proactive and committed to going that extra mile to ensure pupils achieve the best they possibly can. Very good literacy/ numeracy skills are essential, so too is the ability to relate well to children and adults.  This Level 2 post is likely to be based in either the Upper Juniors or Early Years and so flexibility and adaptability is needed.
Applegarth Academy is part of the STEP Academy Trust (Striving Together for Excellence in Partnership) and continues on an exciting, fast-paced journey of school improvement. We are a Rights Respecting School, follow the International Primary Curriculum and put the children at the heart of all decision making.

Applegarth has excellent transport links, with the tram line into Croydon just a few minutes’ walk away. You are then a short train journey away from central London and the outskirts of the M25. We are a 10 minute car journey from the centre of Croydon.
