This is an exciting time to join us at Cornerstone Academy Trust, with schools based on the edge of Exeter in East Devon and in the coastal town of Barnstaple in North Devon.

We are responsible for a number of Department for Education ‘centres of excellence’, working with other teachers and schools across the country to provide professional development and support with school improvement strategies.

We are wishing to recruit Mealtime Assistants who are hardworking and dedicated members of staff to aid in the smooth running of lunchtimes. You will be responsible for setting up the dining hall, helping the children with the lunch service and clearing up the dining hall after lunch.

These are permanent positions, and the standard working hours are from 11.30am to 1.45pm, weekdays in school term time.  This is 11.25 hours per week.  The hourly rate for this position is £9.50 plus an element of holiday pay.

You will have access to the Local Government pension scheme, a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme and subsidised meals. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment to help them fulfil their duties and we support all staff with an investment in their professional development through training and a good performance management process, where a bonus is payable to those who achieve highly. 

We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully meeting you as part of the recruitment process.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for all our posts.
