Advert

Due to a change of circumstances beyond our control, an exciting opportunity has become available in KS2 at Oakfield Primary Academy, on a fixed term basis until 31 August 2023, with the potential of becoming permanent based on performance.  We are looking to recruit an experienced, able and hard-working class teacher who is also willing to take on additional responsibilities across the school.

Oakfield Primary Academy is an incredibly supportive school, with the staff and pupils at the centre of all it does!  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.  We want our children to fulfil their academic ability but to also be good human beings when they leave us.  There are excellent opportunities for future career development across our schools with many staff who have started as support staff and are now in senior leadership positions.

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!’
