Riverview Junior School is a very popular four form entry Key Stage 2 school on a large site we share with the Infant School.
Our extensive site offers lots of opportunities for outdoor learning, including an outdoor library, two football pitches, MUGA, outdoor intervention area, animal farm and forest school, and we offer large well-resourced classrooms.
We are delighted to announce that our recent Ofsted inspection, carried out in February 2022, graded the school’s overall effectiveness as ‘Good’ with ‘Behaviour & Attitudes’, 'Personal Development and Leadership Management’ all being graded as Outstanding;.
We joined The Pathway Academy Trust (TPAT) in October 2017.
The Pathway Academy Trust is ‘dedicated to ensuring every child has the opportunity to achieve a remarkable life’.
TPAT is a small local trust that puts children at the heart of its decision making. We understand the value of strong collaborations in achieving our goal.
Working for TPAT offers our employees a wealth of opportunities for professional development as well as an emphasis on wellbeing. Our Staff Charter is our pledge to put employees at the centre of our organisation. Our Staff Charter and Wellbeing package can be found on our website.
Some of the benefits in our Staff Charter include:
• Two additional days off per year, one as a Happy Birthday from the Trust, following a successful probation period, which can be taken during term time
• Free breakfast club place for your child if you work in breakfast club or after-school club, and half-price places for other staff members

• Annual flu vaccination
• Free tea, coffee and refreshments
• Christmas lunch
• Termly breakfast for all staff
The Pathway Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This role will involve contact with children, referred to as regulated activity, therefore all applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children. Further information regarding the Trusts recruitment policy, including the employment of ex-offenders, is available on our website www.tpat.co.uk
