The Oaktree School is looking for an inspiring and enthusiastic early years teacher who can nurture children’s love of learning by teaching them how to learn, how to care for others and develop an understanding of the world around them.

We are a friendly school with a great team ethos, both working with children and each other. We continually strive for high standards in our school, but still have time for fun and enjoyment! We will provide a full induction, with an allocated induction mentor and buddy, opportunities to develop your skills and further your career.

About The Oaktree School

We are a three form entry infant school with 270 children. Our Steering Group (the Leadership team) comprises of the Headteacher, Deputy, School Business Manager and two TLRs.

At the Oaktree School we believe that every child is unique, with unique gifts and abilities. Our role is not merely to promote the individual learning of the child but also to draw out all his/her unique gifts and to see that each child is valued for his or her particular contribution.

Everyone at the school strives to be ‘the best they can be’ whether that be children or staff. Teachers sign up to a culture of change and innovation and are prepared to take risks. The school uses a coaching model for raising performance, and consequently staff are engaged in a continuous dialogue about learning.
