Richard Atkins Primary School is looking for an outstanding Clerical Officer to join our exceptional team in a vibrant and inclusive school that Ofsted described as having “an impressive climate for learning”, where “pupils are keen to share their achievements and are proud of their school”.

Situated in Brixton in the Borough of Lambeth, Richard Atkins is a primary school with a nursery, serving a wonderfully socially, culturally and ethnically diverse community and challenges all children to think that anything is possible. We are very proud of our school and our achievements but we know that we still have work to do to become an outstanding school. 

Our staff team is made up of a wide range of experiences and disciplines and everyone is valued. We have high expectations of our pupils and each other want to ensure that we provide the best possible environment and education so that our children can reach their potential in both their academic achievements and their knowledge and experience of life.

We are an outward looking school and have built strong partnerships with parents, local schools and the Local Authority. In particular, we are proud to play a leading role within the Windmill Cluster of Schools with whom we share ideas, resources and expertise in order to facilitate the highest outcomes in attainment and aspirations for our pupils and the wider community.

We are looking for a highly committed, self-motivated individual to join our support staff team, to play a vital role in the delivery of a professional, effective and welcoming administrative service to pupils, parents, colleagues and the wider school community. The successful candidate will work in the school’s busy reception area and be the first point of contact for all school visitors and other stakeholders.  

In return we can offer: 

  • A friendly and welcoming working environment 
  • An exceptional, innovative and experienced staff team
