Further details about the role

Now is the most exciting time to become a part of Oakridge CP School. You will join a creative and enthusiastic team on our journey of improvement as we strive to provide the very best education for our pupils.

Our learning environment and education provision is second to none. Our new garden school curriculum is getting our children outside into our incredible grounds, while our collaborative approach to planning with the other YEAT schools ensures that children are getting the very best in teaching and learning.

We are proud to have recently joined Yorkshire Endeavour Academy Trust (YEAT) alongside Castleton, Glaisdale, Lealholm, Airy Hill and Westcliff in Whitby. YEAT is also one of 32 organisations nationally to be a designated ‘English Hub’ which delivers excellence in early language and phonics teaching in reception and KS1. At Oakridge, the impact of this support is clear in our early reading provision and in our rapidly improving writing.

Our teachers benefit from a team of highly skilled Teaching Assistants that play a vital role in school life and we are looking to appoint a highly motivated Teaching Assistant to join our team.

We encourage applications from candidates who have a passion for primary education or have worked in other Early Years settings and want to try something new. This is the perfect job if you wish to work in a setting which offers reward and challenge and where no two days are the same.

The successful candidate must hold English and Maths GCSE level ‘C’ or above or equivalent.
