‘Abendschule’ (After-school club) Supervisor

Due to the retirement of the current post holder, we are seeking to appoint an Abendschule Supervisor from 23rd February 2015 to lead the existing team of Abendschule assistants (two in attendance each day) and pupils in our daily after‑school play and care club for 3-8 year olds. The post is initially offered as a term-time only role, Monday to Friday 3.10pm - 5.40pm, although there is a strong possibility that daily hours may increase in the future, and/or an increased age‑range may be enabled to access the club. Previous experience in a similar setting, or in education e.g. as a Teaching Assistant, will be an advantage. The ability to work well as part of a team and to lead provision in this supervisory role are essential.

Abendschule takes place in a school building on-site ‘Rookwood House’, which has 3 separate playrooms, a large playground, and kitchen area. Snacks of fruit and biscuits are served to the children on a daily basis. The ‘Job Description’ (below) explains in detail the duties and responsibilities of the Abendschule Supervisor.

Closing date for receipt of applications is 12.00 noon on Thursday, 29th January 2015. Applications should be made by using the school application form provided below.  Interviews will be held on: Thursday 5th February 2015 (pm).
