Casual Post to commence asap

Widecombe is placed in a unique and beautiful location in the heart of Dartmoor and we value everything that this location offers our children. A sense of community is central to our ethos and we want our children to value and understand, not only their own school community and the surrounding local communities, but it is also extremely important to us that they develop a wider sense of what community means globally, opening their eyes to the world beyond where they live.

At Widecombe, we want our curriculum to give frequent and varied opportunities for our children to develop their personal voice. We want our children to leave Widecombe as confident, competent individuals who know how to make a positive difference to the people and the world around them.  Child voice should be integral to the planning process and they should be given scope to make decisions about their own learning thus engaging them fully in the process.

The post involves promoting and supervising active play and ensuring the safety of all children for our wrap around care provision. We are looking for someone who is committed to working with children and can provide a safe and nurturing environment. You will be able to help lead the club, plan sessions, provide fun activities, order and prepare simple snacks, use your initiative and maintain a high quality environment that children thrive in.


Ideally, you will:

- Be able to build good relationships with children, staff and parents and be a friendly and positive

  presence in our school;

- Have excellent English and Maths skills;

- Have high expectations of children’s behaviour and be able to maintain consistent boundaries;

- Be willing to work as part of a team and have a good sense of humour;

- Be able to use your own initiative when required;

- Have experience in a similar role in a school;


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
