Full time permanent
Closing date: Thursday 23rd November 12.00 pm
Interviews: Wednesday 29th November
Start: April 2024 however, a start date between Jan and April would be considered depending on candidate’s individual circumstances.
We are looking for an enthusiastic new teacher to join our’ warm and ‘welcoming’ school (OFSTED GOOD 2021). The post is for Year Two and this is a permanent position.
We are lucky to teach great children who are well- behaved and keen to learn. Our school has been refurbished and expanded in recent years, as a result we benefit from a spacious and attractive environment. Our team is especially friendly and we offer many opportunities to collaborate with colleagues. We have a genuine commitment to work- life balance. Our staff feel supported and know that any decisions made by school leaders have their well-being at heart. This was recognised in our inspection, November 2021.
‘Staff feel valued. This is because leaders, including governors, provide good support. Staff are very positive about the actions taken to reduce their workload. This includes dedicated leadership time for staff who lead a subject. Staff praised leaders for taking steps to help them to manage their work–life balance.’
At Oakdale we take pride in ensuring staff well-being comes first. We make sure that we offer a range of ways to reduce stress and workload and ensure everyone feels supported and valued; from regular staff treats and events, flexible release time, manageable marking, no expectation to run clubs, team working for leadership and planning activities, days off in lieu for attendance at residentials, and many more!
We believe that each class deserves the best provision. We have at least one teaching assistant per class. Our TAs are skilled and committed to the school and the children. Our teachers and TAs work together highly effectively to provide the best possible teaching and support.
If you are interested in finding out more about the role, we would be happy to have an informal chat. We welcome visits to the school at any time.
Please contact the office and ask for Naomi Griffiths or Jane Haynes to arrange a visit or a call from the Head (Ilona Wrigley) or Deputy (Kirsti Britton) to chat about the role. Application packs can be downloaded from the school website.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will require enhanced DBS clearance.
