Do you want to make a difference in changing children’s life chances in an area of high deprivation? Do you have the skills and abilities of supporting children with social and emotional needs?  Do you want to work in a school that is vibrant and dynamic where we have shared values? If so then Chesterfield Primary School is the place for you.

Chesterfield Primary School is looking for an enthusiastic, inspirational individual, who enjoys working as part of a dedicated team and wants to develop their skills in a school environment. We are looking to appoint a Learning Mentor who is committed to working with children with social and emotional difficulties in order to help overcome barriers to learning. You will need to be a well organised person who can work independently and as part of a team and have the skills to build positive relationships with children and colleagues.  

Children at Chesterfield are engaged with a creative curriculum, which encourages pupil voice. We have embedded values that ensure resilience and independence and we aim to build valuable learning skills for life.

We are part of the Enfield Learning Trust, a partnership of successful primary schools in Enfield who have a shared motto, ‘be included.’

As part of the Enfield Learning Trust we are strongly committed to providing high quality professional development and career progression for all staff. We are able to offer significant opportunities to work in collaboration with colleagues at this school and across the Trust.

The well-being of our staff is of paramount importance and promote a healthy work-life balance.  We are constantly reviewing our practices to ensure that our staff can focus on what matters: providing a rich environment in which children can learn and thrive.  As part of the Trust, we offer:

  • Immediate feedback to reduce over-burdensome marking
  • Well-being days
  • Perkbox app – with access to hundreds of exclusive company perks i.e. high street discounts
  • Employee support hub
  • Attendance reward scheme
  • Cycle2Work Scheme

In line with recent legislation, applicants must have a command of spoken English that is sufficient to effectively carry out duties of the role.

Visits are warmly welcome, however due to COVID-19 restrictions these may need to be outside of the school day.  Please contact Sophie Chrysanthou on 01992 760 678 to arrange this.
