A great role has come up at The Dolphin School. We are looking for an Early Years Teaching Assistant to join our EYFS team in a Reception class.

The Dolphin School is a wonderful, thriving inner city school that benefits from exceptionally talented teaching staff, expert governance and the support of a well-respected, hands-on and growing Trust. This is an exciting time to join a community-focussed school at a time of expansion and growth.

We have two Reception classes in the school and we are looking for an Early Years TA to work alongside the class teacher and Early Years Practitioner to support the learning in the classroom. You would be involved in supporting the high quality teaching and learning in the classroom and help to provide excellent provision so the children can learn through play. The role is for 35 hours a week from 8am to 4pm.

An increasing number of families are choosing The Dolphin School for their children and our first preference applications have increased.

Our children reflect the diversity of Bristol with 42 nationalities and 15 languages represented at the school. We are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with an aspiration to become ‘Excellent’, backed by tremendous support from our families and our local community.

At Easter we moved into a brand new purpose built building which has been an exciting time for the school community. We are committed to using our local area and community to support the children with their learning.

We can offer an excellent CPD offer for all candidates and to be part of a supportive and forward thinking team.

We strongly recommend a visit to the school to see our fantastic children. We have four times when you can come and visit the school:

Friday 6th October at 4.30pm

Wednesday 11th October at 2.00pm

Thursday 12th October 4.30pm

Friday 13th at 9.00am

Please call our school office on 0117 924 0517 to book in for a visit. The closing date for this role is Monday 16th October at 12pm.
