St Columb Minor ACE Academy is an exciting, ambitious and forward thinking primary school in Newquay and is part of the Atlantic Centre of Excellence Multi Academy Trust. Our friendly school is a 3-form entry with over 600 pupils on roll.


We seek an enthusiastic and committed Higher Level Teaching Assistant to join our team of skilled HLTAs.


The HLTA will complement the work of the teachers, by taking responsibility for the delivery of agreed curriculum areas in order to allow class teachers to access their PPA time and be released for leadership responsibilities. These roles involve the planning, preparation and delivery of lessons to whole classes where the teachers are not present.


The successful candidate will be expected to meet HLTA national standards or hold equivalent skills, expertise or experience. Excellent numeracy/literacy skills equivalent to NVQ level 2 in English and Maths, and IT skills sufficient to advance pupils' learning are essential for these positions.


ACE Academy Trust has a commitment to safeguarding children and the successful applicants will be required to undergo checks including an enhanced DBS disclosure.
