The MAC Directors of the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Company are seeking to appoint two enthusiastic and highly motivated teaching assistants for St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School.  We are looking for two people to support two pupils on a 1:1 basis.  Applications from non-Catholic people are welcomed.

We are a friendly school of 198 pupils and a dedicated teaching and support team of 28 staff.  In our recent Ofsted Inspection, January 2020, the Inspector stated that; “St Gregory’s is a caring school. The school’s Christian values shine through. Staff have high expectations of pupils. Pupils rise to these. They are keen to learn and do their best. Pupils get on well together. They are respectful and kind. As one pupil said, ‘It is easy to make friends because everyone cares about each other.”

We can offer the successful candidate:

  • Pupils who are enthusiastic, confident, happy and well-behaved.
  • Dedicated, committed and highly supportive staff, eager to build on our high standards.
  • Opportunities for collaborative work in partnership with other class teachers across the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Company and our local schools.
  • A strong faith community.
