We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic individual to join our team as Midday Assistant. You will work in partnership with classroom staff to support pupils during the lunchtime. Please see attached documents for full information inc interview info.
Responsible under the direction of the senior member of staff or other designated person, individually, or as a member of a team, for securing the safety, welfare and good conduct of pupils during the midday break period in accordance with the practices and procedures of the school and local authority.
Main Duties
1. Supervision of pupils, either in the lunch hall or other areas in the school, whilst they are eating lunch or taking part in lunchtime activities.
2. Carry out associated duties, e.g. serving lunch, clear spillages, clean tables and chairs, stack tables and chairs that are used during the lunch break, sweep floor and wash up as required.
3. Report to staff any accidents of the type identified by the school - e.g. head injuries, or pupils who become unwell, so that parents can be contacted.
4. Report to teaching staff/Principal any strangers, visitors or potential hazards on the school site.
5. Attend in-service training when required.
6. Take part in job review meetings and MDSA training meetings when requested
7. Support the aims, ethos and values of the school by example and ensure that they are followed by pupils in line with school policies (for example the Behaviour and Discipline policy).
Supervision and Management
The jobholder does not have regular supervisory responsibility for staff but may be required to assist in work familiarisation for new recruits.
Creativity and Innovation (i.e. Problem Solving)
The main focus of the job is to ensure standards and policies are followed. Problem solving is not a key feature of the job.
Working Environment
The jobholder is constantly standing and walking. Manual handling of tables and/or equipment is involved. Some of the work is undertaken outside. There is background noise from pupils. Sometimes it may be necessary to move quickly to deal with a situation.
The jobholder is dealing with pupils and may also come into contact with parents or other visitors to the school.
Knowledge and Skills
The job requires the ability to communicate with young people. A typical new employee would require a period of induction in order to be familiar with the main aspects of the job within the school’s rules and procedures.
Other Duties
The jobholder may be required to perform duties other than those given in the job description. Particular duties and responsibilities may vary from time to time without changing the overall level of responsibility. Such variations are a common occurrence and would not justify a re-evaluation of the post. However, in cases where a permanent and substantial change in duties and responsibilities of a post occurs, consistent with a higher level of responsibility, then the post would be eligible for re-evaluation.
