Wilton Primary Academy is a thriving learning community of 70 pupils aged 3-11 years. We are seeking to appoint a pro-active, enthusiastic, energetic and reliable Level 3 Learning Assistant to support learning in Key Stage 2. The position is temporary to cover a maternity leave.

As a Level 3 Learning Assistant, you will work alongside our teachers, helping pupils to get the most out of their learning. The main feature of your role will be to support individuals or groups of pupils with their learning both in, and outside the classroom. In addition, you will be integral to the classroom team, supporting teachers in organising the learning environment.

Daily tasks may include:

  • setting up equipment and getting things ready for lessons.
