Higher Level Teaching Assistant


Are you a talented musician with the ability to teach music throughout the primary age range?

The friendly, caring team at Frieth Church of England Combined School are looking for a musically talented individual to join us to cover teacher release time all day Wednesday and on a Thursday afternoon. There may be an opportunity to offer private peripatetic music lessons to our children at other times.

Candidates must be willing to become a part of our whole school team and should be hardworking, committed, highly positive and able to use their initiative. They should be adaptable, creative and able to communicate well with adults and children. Our ethos is one of mutual respect and our ideal candidate would understand how to nurture and develop the whole child whilst maintaining high expectations and standards.


Contract:          Temporary, Part Time, Term Time only (37 weeks)

Hours:              Part time: 1.5 days per week: Wednesday 8.45 - 3.15; Thursdays 1.15 – 3.15

                        Additional opportunities exist for employment in our wrap-around care.

Salary:        Bucks range 2 points 11-15 (£19,467 to £21,879  pro-rata)

The successful candidate will work with all children throughout the school in weekly lessons. You will have the support of a scheme of work for primary music, but should have musical expertise and we welcome creativity. This job may also involve an element of lunchtime supervision.

Frieth CEC 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 staff are required to complete an enhanced DBS Check.
