Join us in our amazing new school

The transformation of King’s Cross is one of the largest, most significant urban regeneration projects in the UK. At its heart is a brand new, purpose built primary Academy which is a part of a unique education campus, co-located with Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Facilities assistant with a professional, responsible approach who will take up post as soon as possible. You will be part of a team working under the direction of the Facilities Manager, working for both Kings Cross Academy and Frank Barnes School.

Our vision is that every aspect of King’s Cross Academy / Frank Barnes School should be the best it can possibly be. We believe every child is entitled to the highest quality learning. This means maximising children’s communication, creativity, thinking, physical learning and social and emotional skills as well as helping them to learn about learning itself.

We need committed staff to join our team and to help us achieve our aims.

As the primary leaseholder of the school site, the Academy takes its responsibilities very seriously. The detail and design from the light wells to the finish on the bannisters, from the colours used in the hand washing areas to the furniture in the classrooms reflect the best environment for both hearing and deaf children and staff. We want this same level of precision applied to the running and maintenance of the building. We want to maintain excellence to optimise the learning conditions for pupils, the working conditions for professionals and the involvement of parents and partners. We want to ensure safe and efficient running and maintenance of the award winning building for the benefit of generations of learners, staff and the wider school community.

Frank Barnes is a bilingual primary school for deaf children. It caters for children aged between 2-11 years from across London (current number on roll is 34 pupils) who are profoundly deaf and whose first language is BSL. It is an innovative school and, as a centre of excellence, is one of the few schools for the Deaf to have achieved 3 consecutive “Outstanding” Ofsted assessments. This is in recognition that our bilingual practice enables many of our pupils to make outstanding progress from their baselines on entry.

You will be recognised as someone who is:

  • Committed to the highest standards of professionalism
  • Able to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and young people
  • Able to work in partnership with parents and carers to provide high quality and care for the children in our school
  • A team player with good interpersonal skills
  • Able to prioritise and be highly organised

We can offer:
