We are seeking to appoint a highly-motivated person to join our team at Fir Tree School. Fir Tree is part of the Newbury Academy Trust and benefits from links that we have with both Trinity and Speenhamland School. The role will involve working as part of the class to support the teacher with pupils’ progress and development, working collaboratively or in small groups and on occasions one-to-one.

The ability to build good working relationships with pupils and staff is key to the role, as well a willingness to learn and be flexible. A good general level of education is essential and this role may well appeal to people who are considering going into teaching as a career. A level 3 qualification is desired but not essential. You may be required to cover ½ hour Lunch time slot.

If you feel that you have the experience and drive for this role we would like to hear from you.  Application is by application form and letter to Mrs Wood, Headteacher, the former including the names and addresses of two appropriate referees.  Further details can be obtained from Mrs Dougal on 01635 42129, by email to or visit the school’s website


Closing date:      Monday 3rd June 2019

Interviews:           Week beginning 10th June 2019
