We are looking to appoint a smiley, cheerful, charismatic person who communicates well and has an optimistic disposition and can join our fabulous team of learning support staff at Knightwood.


If you have the personal presence to engage, enthuse and support our children effectively with their learning, you may be just what we are looking for. Above all, in line with our vision statement “Always Learning”, we are seeking someone who is an effective learner with a track record of self improvement and personal growth.


If you have compassion, patience, flexibility and resilience and always put children first, you may well be the one for us!


We are an Ofsted rated “Outstanding” Primary School with an excellent team of skilled and dedicated practitioners looking for similar like-minded professional people to join us.

This position is two fold and is both to provide learning support either on a 1:1 basis or within one of our classrooms (as directed) and also to support children’s welfare and needs during the lunchtime period.  The successful candidate will have had recent experience of working in a school setting or previous working experience as an LSA or teacher.


Salary will be dependent upon previous experience and is pro rata for the hours worked and term time working.
