An exciting new opportunity has arisen for someone to join our fabulous Bluebell Federation in September 2024 as a full time individual needs assistant working at Fletching CE Primary School, with the hours being Monday-Friday term time only from 8.40am-3.15pm with a 30minute lunch break each day. 

The successful candidate will be working in the Reception Class on a 1:1 basis with a child who is starting school in September 2024. The role will be linked to the child and will end when they leave the school.

  • support an individual child on a one-to-one basis ;
  • supervise and take care of the child during the lunch time period in all areas, inside and outside of the school.

This is a busy and varied role, but we will help you to get the support you need to succeed.

The successful candidate will need:

  • to have experience of supporting children in a classroom environment;
  • to have knowledge and understanding of child development;
  • to be effective at establishing good relationships with pupils, staff and parents;
  • to have good maths and English skills;
  • to have high expectations of themselves and pupils;
  • to embrace the Christian ethos of the school;
  • to promote a positive image of the school through their work and attitude.
