We are seeking to appoint a teaching assistant to support children’s learning and social and emotional needs and an individual needs assistant to support a child with special educational needs. Both roles include playtime and lunchtime duties. A passion for creativity, high expectations and a commitment to inclusion are essential.

Middle Street is a popular city centre one form entry school which serves a rich and diverse community of enthusiastic children and their supportive families. 

If you are a happy, easy going person who is ambitious for the children they support and themselves then we are very interested in meeting you. We expect you to work hard but in return we can offer you; children who are proud of their school, a job you will enjoy, a supportive, happy and  sociable staff to work alongside and a great (for a number of reasons) city centre location.

We are keen to ensure that school staff reflect the diversity of the pupils attending Middle Street Primary School. Therefore, we welcome applications from under -represented groups, particularly from black or minority ethnic backgrounds.

Please come and visit us and meet the children as part of the application process.

For an application pack information and to arrange a visit please contact our schools business manager at the telephone number/email address above.

We look forward to meeting you.
