About John Blandy Primary School

Our vision is to grow flourishing learners, who have a sense of belonging to our school community, believe in themselves and others and aim to be as brilliant as they can be. Our approach to life at school is that ‘happy children learn’, and this is evident through our school values and ethos.

We can offer you:
• Professional Support and Development - The opportunity to join the leadership team at a forward-thinking, growing school, with strong support from the Headteacher and Governing Body.
• A School with a Heart – Our school values and vision are at the centre of everything we do. We have an incredibly strong, talented and committed staff team and a delightful pupil community.
• A Wonderful Community - Despite the size and make-up of the School, we are still a village school, with a caring, family ethos and a great reputation.
• Strong Support Networks - As part of the Faringdon Learning Trust, we benefit from close working relationships of a MAT, and can guarantee a supportive environment where collaborative working within a strong partnership of Headteachers, colleagues and governors is the norm and unique opportunities for further professional development can be offered.
