Pay: MPS/UPS Start Date: Jan 2018 We currently have a full time opportunity for a versatile, qualified teacher in KS2. If you are interested in applying for this position please read the attached Job Description. Here at Ashford Oaks, we’re looking for teachers who are every bit as unique as our school. Whether you’re experienced or newly qualified, you’ll share our commitment to ‘love the children as your own.’ That’s not the only special quality you’ll demonstrate. We asked the children what they want to see in their new teachers. This is what they said: “You should be kind and friendly, interesting, cheerful and funny. Reliable, a good role model, encouraging, honest and hardworking. Caring, enthusiastic, an excellent listener – and you must enjoy working as a teacher” Like your new colleagues, you will have what it takes to set high expectations for your pupils, create a safe and stimulating environment, and inspire them to achieve. You’ll encourage each child to take responsibility for their own work, to love learning and embrace intellectual curiosity. Many of our pupils come from a challenging environment, but we are committed to raising standards. That’s because, as OFSTED notes, our “Headteacher, senior leaders, staff and governors are united” in our approach to improvement. They also observed that our pupils “get on well together, have positive attitudes to their learning and are proud of their school.” Our Headteacher Gerry D’cruz says, “We believe children’s self-esteem is the most important consideration in a child’s education. We help them believe in themselves and from this comes high expectations and achievement.” Visit us and you’ll see the Ashford Oaks spirit in action, in everything we do – from the Pastoral Support Team providing a listening ear at the school gates every day, to the lovely activities we have planned with our children. Joining us, you will benefit from a strong collaborative environment. We work in year group teams with 60 children and up to 6 adults. Thanks to our excellent career development programme, you’re sure to thrive. You will need to be available to be observed on a mutually agreeable date, and be available to be interviewed on Tuesday 26th September 2017. We are looking for the applicant to start as soon as possible. You can find out more about us at our website. But we’d love to say hello. So if you’d like more information or to arrange a tour, please contact Ellie South on 01233 631259. If you get in touch over the Summer break we will be in touch as soon as we return. Closing Date: 15/09/2017 at 12:00 Interviews: 26/09/2017 Information about the school Ashford Oaks has great facilities and an ASD specialism. We are looking for a skilled and passionate person who naturally loves and cares about children and has a determination to provide the very best inclusive education, whilst recognising the importance of working as a team with staff, parents and community. Our School and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children.
