Based at Finham Primary School

We are part of Finham Park Multi-Academy Trust and as such are committed to designing a 0-19 co-constructed curriculum and working across the child’s whole educational journey. Finham Primary School is a School in which children are equipped with the skills to be good learners and are inspired by high quality creative teaching. Our vision is to nurture, within all members of the school community, a good level of self-esteem and to develop a positive and confident attitude to life-long learning. We believe we can build on the foundations of earlier learning by encouraging children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, enhancing it with first-hand experiences.

We are seeking to appoint a motivated individual who would be joining the School at an exciting time. We are looking for someone to assist the day-to-day operation of the Out-of-Hours’ school club (Squirrels) ensuring provision of a safe caring and stimulating environment. There is the option to be flexible with the working hours ranging from working early morning Breakfast Club, Lunchtime and Afterschool or a mixture of the three.

The role involves providing high standards of care and play opportunities for children between the ages of 3- 11 years old in a safe and secure environment. The right candidate will have the energy, enthusiasm and ideas to develop this provision. In addition, it is essential that the person for this role is organised, flexible and has a ‘can do’ approach to work.
