What we can offer

Wolvercote is a Good primary school uniquely positioned in Oxfordshire; a village school with the advantages of the nearby facilities and opportunities of a big city. The school sits at the heart of a diverse and supportive community who take an active role in all aspects of school life. ‘The school’s partnership with parents is a strength.’ Ofsted 2018

The school prides itself on its warm and inclusive approach to both children and staff. Our children are confident, articulate and curious and understand what it means to be an active learner. ‘Across the school, relationships between staff and pupils are positive and warm. Pupils enjoy coming to school and say their teachers make learning fun.’ Ofsted 2018

We want all of our children to have the opportunity to shine and value all aspects of the curriculum, ensuring all children have access to high quality music, sports, outdoor learning and opportunities to expand the children’s understanding of the world and develop their cultural capital.

The leadership team at Wolvercote is experienced and supportive and can offer coaching support and mentorship. The school encourages self development and provides a range of training and development opportunities.

Our school is part of the River Learning Trust; our collective vision is to be a Trust where pupils and staff thrive in schools which demonstrate:

  • all-round education, academic success, lifelong learning and strength of character
  • sustainable continuous improvement; no school standing still
  • all schools being good and outstanding, or improving rapidly
  • collaboration that is raising standards, and reducing workload
  • where pupils, staff, parents and communities value all we do to support the best possible outcomes and experiences for our children and young people

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
