I work full term time in a Primary School 8am through to 4pm. At 8am I help look after the children at a breakfast club, which involves serving breakfast and preparing them for their day at school.
From 9am I work in the school office covering the reception, answering telephone calls and supporting the school staff with their day to day requests.
Occasionally I attend meetings with parents, Educational Welfare Officers and the Head Teacher to review attendance.
I am responsible for maintaining the money coming into the office.
I have helped on school trips, visits to church and the local swimming pool.
I am the secretary of the schools PTA, this includes me attending regular meetings with parents and taking minutes from the meeting. I also help organise events to raise money for the school.
I enjoy the busy side of the job and not knowing what each day will entail.
It is sometimes challenging dealing with parents complaints.
