We are looking to recruit an excellent and highly skilled class teacher to join our fantastic school.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a dynamic school environment and to be part of an enthusiastic team of educators.

We are a popular primary school in the Oxfordshire town of Carterton, close to RAF Brize Norton. Visitors to our school often comment on the calm and friendly atmosphere, and our children are happy and enjoy their learning.  As a school we have worked really hard over the past few years to build a strong and committed team with the capacity to improve the outcomes for our pupils.  In 2017, we became an academy as part of The River Learning Trust.  We feel very strongly that our school team, along with the wider family of the River Learning Trust, is what makes our school successful.

The River Learning Trust principles are:

• Commitment to Excellence: we have high expectations in all that we do

• Everyone Learning: there is a culture of Professional Learning for all staff, as well as ensuring the very best Teaching and Learning for our pupils

• Respectful Relationships: we treat each other with respect and we care about everyone in our school community

Our Teaching and Learning Policy (created and developed by staff) has a focus of whole class ‘Teaching to the Top’, with an emphasis on high expectations, knowing our children well, excellent teacher subject knowledge and targeted, effective questioning.  The school’s Core Values of ‘well-being’, ‘aspiration’ and ‘resilience’ underpin this policy and form the basis of our school ethos.

The River Learning Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check. The River Learning Trust is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from a range of backgrounds to represent diversity in line with our schools' community.
