Job Listing Summary

About us

Berryfields Church of England Primary School opened as part of the Aylesbury Vale Academy in September 2013 and we now have children in all year groups from Nursery to Year 6.  We are highly aspirational for our pupils and endeavour to cater to the needs of all individual learners to ensure that each child reaches their full potential. This is a school on the march having moved from inadequate to good in two years and we are ambitious to achieve even greater things!

As a Church of England School and as part of the Aylesbury Vale Academy, we are sponsored by the Oxford Diocese and have community facilities and a children’s centre on site.  A commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children is essential and we expect all our staff to share our desire to serve the people of Berryfields and to help build a community that enables our children and their families to be the very best they can.

About the Role

We are looking for an inspirational teacher to be responsible for a Key Stage 1 class that has the passion and determination to inspire our children and contribute to the continuous growth and standard of teaching at our school. The successful candidate will possess confidence and creativity, have the ability to capture children's imagination and develop a love of learning that will create the foundation for future educational outcomes

The post provides:-

  • High levels of mentoring and support for newly qualified teaches and those in the early stages of their career.
  • Opportunities to develop pedagogy and leadership skills by working closely with colleagues and school leaders on the continuing growth and development of the school; by cross-phase working within the primary school and with the secondary school and by partnership working with other local schools.
  • A commitment to professional development and scope for career progression as the school grows and as new roles emerge.
  • A pleasant working environment with high quality resources and well planned provision, working within a supportive and collaborative team; a state of the arty gym available for staff use and a 5 minute walk to a direct rail link to London Marylebone (40 minutes).

About You

The post is suitable for newly qualified teachers, those in the early stages of their career and for candidates with more experience.  You should have recent experience of teaching or training in KS1 and may have experience of other key stages.  If you are a creative and reflective practitioner with high expectations for children’s achievement, if you believe in working together to make a real difference for the next generation, if you are looking for a new challenge and want to be part of something special, then we would love to meet you and find out more about you.
