Teaching Assistant Role Profile

 

Purpose of Role

British Primary School of Wilanow (BSW) in Warsaw, Poland is seeking to appoint an inspiring Teaching Assistant to join a forward-thinking, dynamic team in Warsaw's fastest growing international school. This role is for a late August 2024 start.

Our teachers have formed a strong team, demonstrating flexibility, creativity and flair; we need new members who are every bit as willing to play a full part in helping to develop the ethos, character and structures of an ambitious, values-based school. We have a clear philosophy of education centred on our Walk of the Lion which values Respect, Courage, Cooperation, Consideration and Nobility.

Our teachers are hard-working and passionate about education. They set high expectations with regards to the progress of all pupils and are effective and supportive members of the whole school team. At BSW, teachers endeavour to place the school values at the heart of everything they do.

BSW has a rich programme of outdoor learning, including Forest School and sports and our teachers play a full part in the cultural, educational and extra-curricular life of the school.

 

About the School

The school is located in the upscale Warsaw suburb of Wilanow, where old meets new and city meets country. The historical Royal Wilanow overlooks new, stylish cafes and shops as well as leafy green fields and woods.

BSW opened in Autumn 2014, in a purpose-built accommodation on a charming greenfield site, with a handful of Nursery-age children. Numbers for 23/24 have grown to 350 and there are waiting lists in most year groups.

 

We are strongly committed to the highest standards of education. BSW successfully completed COBIS Patron's Accreditation in November 2021.

 

BSW joined the International Schools Partnership in 2023.
