It is a vibrant buzzy and busy school, and you will need to be highly organised and be able to spin many plates at once, the Parents, Staff, and Children will come to you as the first point of contact, so we are looking for someone with the ability to remain level headed and calm.

Attention to detail and organisational skills are a must with this role. You will be learning new systems, scheduling, phone systems, health, and safety, amongst many other tasks.

This is a fab role for any of those who have wondered what it is like to work in a school and can use this term to learn the ropes.
