Vacancies at Russell Lower School.


HLTA (level 4)

Full Time Permanent Position


Russell Lower School is a highly successful, thriving and expanding community school.  We are a school with high expectations and a clear strategy for continuing to flourish.


In recent years, we have invested heavily to ensure that our school is a high quality learning environment for the children and a wonderful place for staff to work.


Children love learning at Russell Lower School and progress well in our supportive, nurturing, collaborative environment.  We have a ‘Good’ Ofsted grading, in which it was noted:


“Pupils say they love school…they say teachers are good and fun, they get support if they need it, teachers encourage them to do high-level work and they learn a lot, everyone gets along.”


We are seeking to appoint a highly talented, passionate, motivated, caring and committed member of staff to join our friendly, professional and supportive teaching team from March 2020.


The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in our classrooms as a highly skilled Learning Support Assistant, to lead interventions, to cover PPA sessions and for some class cover.  An interest or ability in Modern Foreign Languages would also be an advantage, but is not essential.


We can offer you:

  • happy, well-behaved, confident and respectful children
  • a wonderful, modern working environment
  • supportive and friendly colleagues
  • a team that really cares, and has well-being as a priority


Only support staff who care passionately about children and their progress need apply!
