Contractual Terms: 29¾ hours per week | Term-time only

Start date: September 2024

Are you seeking a new opportunity to join a talented, ambitious and supportive team? Take a look at the fantastic opening we have within our brand new 3 – 16 school.

Thank you for expressing an interest in the Teaching Assistant (Level 2) post at Ysgol Bro Taf; the new 3 – 16 English-medium school based in Pontypridd. The school will open in September 2024 with an £18.5 million investment in the creation of 21st Century learning facilities that reflect our commitment to excellence.

The Teaching Assistant will work under the direction of the Head of Lower School and be responsible for delivering a programme of differentiated work to individuals or small groups of pupils, in or out of the classroom, which has been planned by the teacher. These programmes may have been identified following a formal or informal assessment by a qualified practitioner but will not require any formal training to deliver them.

Our vision is to discover brilliance in every child. We will immerse our pupils in a wide range of opportunities and experiences across different learning contexts inside and outside the classroom. This approach will be central to life at the school. We will also strive to create a happy, safe and secure environment, where children and adults work together to create a culture of support and trust.

Our excellent practitioners and leaders will feel supported to innovate and will challenge the ‘norm’ - pushing the boundaries and not being afraid of doing things differently. Our staff will have a genuine passion for the work that they do; self-motivated, self-disciplined, and driven to succeed and be the best they can be. In return, Ysgol Bro Taf will be an exciting place to work - a place where everyone’s achievements are celebrated, and everyone feels valued for the key contribution they are making to our collective success.

We will create a culture in which openness and an active willingness to share and promote the very best practice are key factors in the drive for improvement in our school. We will be proactive in reaching out to the education community in order to learn from them and share our own expertise. We will also invest heavily in our most valued resource, our staff, and will ensure everyone benefits from a rich and purposeful programme of professional learning to help realise our ambitious vision.
