Oakfield Primary Academy is looking for a teacher to join a vibrant, hard-working, excellent team of teachers in Key Stage 2. This is a temporary maternity cover vacancy.  

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!’

Oakfield Primary Academy works closely with the other schools in The Galaxy Trust (Fleetdown Primary Academy, Temple Hill Primary Academy and West Hill Primary Academy) and all are situated within Dartford. With approx 2800 pupils across the four schools there are a great number of opportunities for developing the best provision within the area.

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 can you expect when joining Oakfield Primary Academy?

  • A leadership team that challenges and supports.
  • Plenty of opportunities to have a voice to influence school development.
  • Hard-working Trustees and Local Governors that want the best for pupils, parents and staff.
  • Wonderful children that come from all sections of the community.
  • Parents that want the best for their children and will help the school achieve best outcomes.
  • A great sense of teamwork. Plenty of laughter along the way.

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.
