Looking to get into working in administration? This role is ideal for entry-level administrators to develop their skills.  
This role has a wonderful balance between administrative duties and the fun of interacting with pupils as part of your midday supervisory assistant duties. 
About Us:
Welcome to Applegarth Primary School. Our historic building is in the centre of Northallerton in the heart of North Yorkshire. When our school was built in 1909, it was for the purpose of being the model school in the county. It is our goal to make this vision a reality.
Applegarth is a family in which children are confident and take pride in themselves and their peers. Parents/carers, governors, local residents and the whole community are active participants in our school’s development.
Job Details:

This role is the best of both worlds, during lunchtimes you will be able to step away from your computer and spend time with our pupils. This may involve aiding pupils to enjoy their lunch indoors or monitoring them during playtime on the playground.
This role is not exclusively for those who have worked administration duties for a school environment before, candidates who have worked in other sectors are encouraged to apply.
This role is open to both entry-level and more experienced administrators.

  • Have excellent organisational skills
  • Be punctual
  • Be computer confident (Experience using Microsoft Office)
