Shoreham Seeks Superhero!

School Crossing Patrol Vacancy.

Location: A283, Shoreham-By-Sea – Swiss Gardens Primary
Hours: Part-time, term-time
Salary: £7.19 – £7.43 per hour
Closing Date: (ongoing)

School Crossing Patrols provide a vital service to the children of West Sussex by assisting them to cross the road safely on their way to and from school.

At 130 sites in West Sussex, School Crossing Patrols are employed at the start and finish of each school day. Although exact times vary from site to site, the commitment is usually 30-40 minutes each morning and afternoon.

The rate of pay is £7.19 per hour rising to £7.43 per hour by annual increments and of course you only work in term-time (38 weeks per year). In addition, you get full pay for 5 weeks holiday plus public holidays which takes the hourly rate to over £8.00 per hour. Your salary will be spread equally over 12 months, so you get paid the same each month, even over the summer holiday and half-terms! There is no upper age limit and we do have several patrol people well into their seventies! Uniform and training are provided.

As the role involves working with children, a ‘Disclosure and Barring Service’ check (previously ‘Criminal Records Bureau’ check) will of course need to be undertaken.

    I used to work in Sweet Treats in Shoreham High Street and I expect I know some of the children who go to this school.
