Head teacher: Mr Paul Griffiths

Required from 7th September 2020

We require an outstanding and highly motivated Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join our hard-working teams in these two  ‘good’ schools, to lead and teach PE and school sport across The Federation.

You will nurture, inspire, challenge and motivate pupils, whist implementing clear boundaries and routines.  Applicants must have at least a 2 year, full, clean driving licence with a willingness to complete MIDAS, (Minibus driver awareness scheme) enabling you to drive our school minibus to transport our children to sports competitions.  HLTA status is desirable but not essential as this qualification can be completed while in post.  You will work alongside class teachers and at times independently to deliver high quality PE and school sports following our agreed PE curriculum.

The successful candidate will develop extra curriculum physical activity provision, lunchtime and afterschool and play a key role in facilitating our children’s involvement in partnership events and competitions.

Follifoot and Spofforth CE Primary Schools are both small rural schools, close to Harrogate and Wetherby.  We create a friendly, happy and caring atmosphere where children are nurtured to progress in a supportive learning environment. Our schools’ ethos are underpinned by Christian values, and there is a very good relationship with both local communities.  

Visits are actively encouraged, please contact Sarah Giddings, the school administrator to make an appointment. For further information about our Federation, please go to our website at: www.follifootandspofforth.co.uk.
