Start Date: September 2021
Here at Ashford Oaks, we're looking for a KS1 Teacher who is 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 area. But their attainment is rising year on year. 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 Phil Chantler 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. We are a school that looks forward and not back."
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 entire school taking part in move and groove on the playground.
Joining us, you will benefit from a strong collaborative environment and enjoy our ethos where we love the children as if they were our own.
