Job Vacancies

Brinkworth Earl Danby’s Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure And Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.


We are looking to recruit a Teaching Assistant, to provide support to pupils on our KS2 site at Upper School, Brinkworth.  We are looking for someone who is committed to helping children to achieve their full potential and who will be a positive role model for pupils, whatever their needs and abilities.  The successful applicant is likely to have relevant work experience with Primary aged pupils, ideally at KS2, and will be calm and supportive in nature.  The role will include some periods of supporting the whole class, and some periods of working with small groups on targeted activities.  The TA role will be 5 mornings per week, from 8:30am to 12noon each day, at Grade D.

In addition, you will be required to work as an MDSA from 12 noon until 1pm each day, Monday to Friday, at Grade B. Our MDSAs support pupils during the lunchtime period, both while they are eating their lunch and at play. The role will involve supporting all the pupils at Upper School (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6), working with the other MDSAs to ensure that the lunchtime period runs smoothly and that the children benefit from positive play opportunities.

Initially both roles will be based at our Upper School (Brinkworth) site supporting Key Stage 2 pupils; however, some degree of flexibility is required in order to provide support where it is needed most. Work at our Lower School (Dauntsey) site may be required from time to time, e.g. to cover staff absences.
