We are looking to recruit two Higher Level Teaching Assistants to join our friendly, dedicated team here at St Matthew's.  We have two positions available, one to start on 3rd June 2024 and a second to start on 1st September 2024.

Our higher level teaching assistants work across the whole of our school.  In the first instance they would work as a general teaching assistant in one year group in the mornings.  In the afternoons they would teach whole classes as part of regular PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment for class teachers).  Part of their role would also be to cover classes due to staff absence.  When covering classes, HLTAs would be delivering lessons already prepared by teachers. 

St. Matthew’s Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children.  All our staff must share this commitment.  Successful applicants will need to provide two referees and will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

We believe you would be very happy working as part of our supportive team, so we do hope you choose to apply.  The application pack can be downloaded below.  Completed applications should be sent to the school office:
