Advert

An exciting opportunity has arisen at Oakfield Primary Academy to recruit a Year 2 Classroom Teacher on a fixed term basis until 31 August 2023.  We are fortunate next academic year to be in a position to have smaller class sizes in Year 2 (which will equate to approximately 23 children per class), which is an advantage to both teachers and pupils.

Every teacher is entitled to the best possible CPD. No teacher is ever left to plan alone.  Reducing teacher workload and improving teacher well-being is a priority.  Governance arrangements fully support the development of teachers, enabling them to concentrate on teaching and learning.  A high priority is placed on developing the deeper learning of basic skills, whilst at the same time developing a broad and balanced curriculum of foundation subjects.  There are excellent opportunities for future career development across our schools.

What we expect from teachers in our schools:

  • The skill to keep the child at the centre of everything they do.
  • An ability to see the best in every child.
  • Hard-working, loyal, professional teachers that actually want to teach!
  • To work as a team and be proud of collective as well as individual achievements.
  • A high standard of English and maths knowledge.
  • A passion for another area of the curriculum.

 We have recently been judged with a solid good in Ofsted; this is the type of school you could be joining:

  • A strong sense of community fills this inclusive school
  • Staff have high expectations of the pupils and expect them to work hard
  • Adults are strong role models
  • Staff are proud to work here and pupils love to learn here
  • Leaders and staff have worked incredibly hard to improve the school since its last inspection
  • ‘There is a real team feeling – we are Team Purple.’
  • Teachers know their pupils well
  • Pupils feel that they will leave school remembering motivational teachers and visitors, that diversity is celebrated, and that they have been treated as individuals: ‘It’s OK to be me!’
