An opportunity has arisen at Marlborough Primary Academy for an enthusiastic, resilient and committed person to encourage, motivate and support a particular child in a Year 4 class.

  • is caring and has confidence working with children;
  • lead 1:1 and has experience of delivering interventions
  • an effective communicator who can liaise with parents and external agencies where necessary;
