This is an exciting stage in the school’s development as we have just embarked on a transformational journey to become one of the most improved schools in London!   We have been graded as ‘good’ in all areas by Ofsted (June 2016) and pupils are beginning to make rapid progress in our purposeful and engaging environment.  Since September 2017, when we appointed a new headteacher, we have been redefining what is possible for our pupils. Roxbourne is committed to giving every child the best possible start in life. This academic year alone, we have developed and launched a pioneering reading programme, implemented a specialist teacher model and we have introduced 20% release time for all class teachers (equivalent to a whole day out of class). There are still a number of innovative initiatives in the pipeline, including Weekly Incremental Coaching and a full wider curriculum review – and we’d like you to be part of this development.  

We are looking for:  

- an ambitious Class Teacher to join a committed team  

- a teacher with a genuine passion and a belief in the potential of every child 

- a practitioner who is willing to go above and beyond, and do whatever it takes to ensure all children are happy and successful 

- a reflective practitioner, who is continually striving to improve through our weekly coaching model  

In return, we offer the opportunity to: 

- join a school committed to achieving a healthy work / life balance, for example, at Roxbourne, all teachers receive 20% release time (equivalent to a whole day out of class) 

- work closely with a team that will provide support and direction - work with staff, pupils and parents who are incredibly aligned, dedicated and passionate about our school community’s potential to achieve remarkable things 

- engage with a parent community with high aspirations and children with exemplary behaviour and attitudes to learning  

- work in a well-resourced school on an impressive site, which includes; a large EYFS outdoor area, multiple playgrounds, a school field and dedicated classrooms for music, art and DT, food technology as well as a library, two computing suites and multiple small group rooms  

We would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm!
