Part –time Pre-school playworker

We are looking for a part-time playworker to join the team of our popular pre-school in January. The Pre-school is in the main school building and currently has 15 children on roll. The post is to provide one-to one support for a child with additional learning needs and is on Monday and Wednesday mornings (9.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m.). The post is a level 2 playworker (hourly rate £9.18)

We need someone who

• Enjoys working with young children
• Relates well to parents
• Is a good team player
• Has lots of patience and a sense of humour
• Wants to help every child have the best start in life.

The post is on a fixed term contract until August 2020.Previous experience of working with children in a school setting is desirable. A qualification in child care would be an advantage but is not essential as training can be offered to the right candidate.

Harston and Newton Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in the commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced disclosure and barring check.

We would encourage you to visit school and meet the Pre-school team. If you are interested in this post please contact the school office by telephone (01223 870345) or email ( ) to receive an application pack and arrange a visit.
