Oare is a happy and vibrant school where we value, nurture and support individual members of the school community. Within our school we seek to explore, learn from and implicitly follow the Christian values in an atmosphere of mutual respect and tolerance.

We are committed to the development of the ‘whole child’ – to encompass their learning, spiritual and emotional growth.

We recognise that each child is an individual and as a result has different learning styles. We celebrate and value achievement regardless of its nature or size, being able to write neatly after struggling to hold a pencil correctly or sounding out words when you find reading difficult is just as important as being able to catch a ball for the first time without dropping it, create an imaginative piece of descriptive writing or finally understanding how to carry out division and get the correct answer.

We are looking for someone who:

• Is interested in the process of learning.

• Is interested in their own development and learning.

• Enjoys working with children.

• Is calm, organised and flexible.

• Can employ strategies as part of a team and is able to use initiative.

• Can work collaboratively as part of a team and is able to use initiative.

• Shows integrity and confidentiality.

• Can enthuse and motivate children.

• Has a GCSE pass in English and Math (or equivalent).

• Experience of a previous role working with children is desirable.

In return we offer:

• A warm, professional workplace where everyone is valued.

• Motivated, engaged and willing learners.

• Staff who are excited by their work and who possess great team spirit

• A strong commitment to your on-going professional development

Closing Date: 20 September 2021

Interview Date: week commencing 27 September 2021
