Duckmanton Primary School is a modern semi-rural school situated in an old mining village on the edge of Chesterfield.  There are approximately 200 children on roll, including a nursery and 2 year old provision.

Due to an increase in pupil numbers and the promotion of an existing member of staff, a position has become available for a Team Leader (Higher Level Teaching Assistant).

We are committed to supporting staff wellbeing and therefore the working hours/days can be adjusted to support the right candidate. 

The Governors would like to appoint an individual who will fit into the hard working, friendly ethos of the school.  The ideal candidate will be very patient, kind and able to use initiative. 

The role will involve delivering lessons and supporting children to make progress in their learning. 

The role is predominately located in Key Stage 2, however a willingness to teach and support in EYFS and KS1 would be desirable.

We pride ourselves on forming supportive relationships with our children. You will need to be committed to your own professional development, have a calm manner and a passion and commitment to encouraging children to achieve the best of their ability.  

You should be able to work as part of a team and show willingness to adopt a flexible approach to work undertaken. 

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.  Please contact the School Business Officer, Sarah Walker via  telephone or email to arrange an appointment.
