Are you a teacher with a real desire to make a difference in the lives of young people and to help our pupils thrive?

Location: Abbey Woods Academy, Berinsfield, South Oxfordshire
Contract term: Permanent
Pay range: MPS
Reporting to: Headteacher

We are looking for someone with ambition and vision; someone who will thrive on Abbey Woods' core values of Community, Aspiration, Respect and Equality as well as sharing our goal of making a real difference to children’s lives.

Abbey Woods Academy is a one form entry primary school serving a diverse community in South Oxfordshire. Our vision for growing together, learning for life, caring for all is at the heart of what we do — we are an inclusive school that works hard to provide our children with the best possible life chances.

This full-time post could suit a newly or recently qualified teacher, or someone with more experience — what matters is that you are an enthusiastic and talented teacher, with high expectations for all children, and a strong commitment to your own continuing professional development.

Abbey Woods works closely in partnership with one of Anthem's outstanding schools, and you will join an exciting team. Our recently appointed Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher form part of the Anthem team that is committed to rapidly improving our school.

If you join us we will nurture you from the outset, providing you with opportunities to learn collaboratively alongside schools and leaders of excellence. We are committed to ensuring that our staff find their next promotion within the Trust and that there are a wide range of opportunities available, not just through the traditional school leadership route.  We help our staff to find the right development opportunities to ensure they progress in their careers.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and require all staff and volunteers to share and demonstrate this commitment.
