Early Years Assistant
Granton Primary School
Salary: £18,860 - £19,142
Hours: 36 per week
Granton Primary and nursery class is a growing school in an area of multi-deprivation. We benefit from both Pupil Equity Funding and a Positive Action allocation.
We have a supportive Parent council and have developed good links with the community.
The Senior Leadership team consists of a Head Teacher, two Depute Head Teachers, a Principal Teacher and a part time Business Manager.
We currently operate a 60/60 nursery with a staff team of one Senior Early Years Intervention Officer, two Senior Early Years Officers, nine Early Years Practitioners and one Early Years Assistant. As we are offering children 1140 hours, we now need to recruit additional staff. From August 2021 we will be offering 90 spaces across the year.
The staff are looking forward to a new two storey nursery building opening in the near future. Please be aware that the new nursery will be open during the school holidays and therefore staff will be expected to work all year round.
Early Years Assistants are required to be registered with the Scottish Social Services Council within 6 months of starting employment. They are also required to achieve an SCQF Level 2 Social Services for Children and Young People qualification within 5 years of being registered with the SSSC and this is funded by the early years service. There will be an opportunity for those who wish to progress to SCQF Level 3 to receive funding for this.
