We are seeking to appoint an Early Years Support Assistant to work 17 hours per week, 39 weeks per year within the nursery of Moffat Academy Primary School.

Moffat Academy is a rural all through school in Dumfries and Galloway – the primary school has approximately 250 pupils, with 46 in the nursery.

Moffat Primary benefits from a new all-through building and is conveniently situated on the motorway network some 22 miles from Dumfries but within easy commuting distance from the central belt. A cluster management team oversees both Moffat Academy All through School and Beattock Primary School and this approach aims to provide a dynamic learning environment where all pupils are challenged and supported to reach their full potential both academically - but also in terms of wider achievement and participation.

A distinctive feature of the cluster is the emphasis given to ensuring high quality seamless transitions through the different sectors to ensure effective curriculum planning, assessment and progression from 3-18. The schools foster strong partnership working between staff in the different stages of the school, within our cluster and with parents and supportive community partners.

You must be a team player and be able to use your own initiative and have experience in working with young people.

This post will involve working in all weather conditions and encouraging young people to interact with each other through play. Setting up and decanting playground games may be part of this role.
