Dickleburgh C of E Primary Academy is looking for a hard- working and enthusiastic teaching assistant to join our fantastic school. You may be a graduate wanting to gain experience for a career in teaching or social work, an experienced teaching assistant or someone with limited experience who is passionate to work in schools.

  • A high level of written, oral and maths skills
  • Ability to work as part of a team and on your own
  • High expectations of yourself and others
  • An understanding of child-initiated learning
  • A “muck in” and “can do” approach
  • A positive attitude and sense of humour

….we would love to hear from you!

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed. Please phone the school to make an appointment.


Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff to share this commitment and an enhanced DBS disclosure will be sought, as well as proof of eligibility to work in the UK.
This post is likely to come under the requirements of the Childcare (Disqualification) 2009 Regulations and the successful applicant will be required to complete a declaration form to establish whether they are disqualified under these regulations.
