Job Summary: Oakfield Primary Academy are looking to recruit a hard working, conscientious Class Teacher on a permanent basis.

Oakfield Primary Academy are looking to recruit a hard working, conscientious Class Teacher on a permanent basis. Part time working will be considered for the right candidate.

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

Adults are strong role models
Staff are proud to work here and pupils love to learn here
