Lunchtime Assistant Vacancies

Ferndown First School has vacancies for lunchtime supervisors, starting in September. We would also like to build up our bank of casual lunchtime supervisors to cover for absence.

School lunchtime supervisors are responsible for the safety of school children during lunchtime breaks and other duties will include:

  • Supervising pupils in the playground and other areas in and around school.
  • Supervising pupils at mealtimes – encouraging children to eat healthily, helping infants to open packaging or cut up food, and providing some social and educational training, such as good table manners.
  • Cleaning up spillages, and possibly helping catering staff to clean tables and clear the dining area.
  • Overseeing children in the playground or during wet play and monitoring the safety and suitability of activities.
  • Supervising children using toilet facilities
  • Maintaining order, cautioning children who misbehave and reporting unresolved problems to the relevant member of staff
  • Making sure children who are ill or injured receive appropriate medical attention, and reporting any serious accidents.

Lunchtime supervisors must also be aware of responsibilities under child protection legislation and take appropriate action, if at all concerned about the well being of a child.

Successful candidates must be available to work five days per week, on Monday to Friday for 1 hour 30 mins per day.

Please use to request additional information or to send letters of application FAO Mr S Watts, Deputy Headteacher, giving details of your previous experience and names and addresses of two referees.

Ferndown First School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our children. All appointments will be made subject to a full DBS check and references will be taken up before interview.  We value the diversity of our workforce and welcome applications from all sectors of the community.

Closing date for applications is Wednesday 5th September 2018.  Interview date to be confirmed.
