Eaton Primary School are looking to employ a School Pastoral Support Assistant. This is a fantastic opportunity to join our wonderful team to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for our pupils and their families.

Managing multiple stakeholders and balancing a demanding workload is essential. This position would be suitable for a highly organised individual who can bring a flexible, supportive, communicative and positive attitude with a willingness to go the extra mile.

Eaton Primary is a welcoming, friendly and vibrant school where all staff work together to ensure that children are inspired to achieve their very best. We take pride in celebrating the diversity of our families and local community, and value learning from each other.

Our recent Ofsted Inspection (December 2023) highlighted that ‘Pupils are proud of their school. They enjoy being part of a warm, welcoming community. They thrive in an environment where happiness permeates the school’.

We are ambitious, inclusive and believe in every child’s right to be successful and to be provided with an exceptional education. All our children in Year 4 learn to play a musical instrument and children in Year 3 learn to swim at the fantastic University of East Anglia Swimming Pool. We also offer a full program of termly trips, visitors and opportunities to attend a wide range of clubs to enhance our curriculum offer.
