What the school offers its staff

Shrivenham school is one of eight schools within the Faringdon Academy of Schools; as such, whilst you’ll have substantial autonomy to run and develop the school as you see fit, you’ll also have the support and expertise of the wider Academy, which takes care of some of the more administrative aspects of running a school, leaving you to focus heavily on what really matters – the children’s education and supporting the staff of the school. Of course, you’ll also have a very supportive governing body and Executive Headteacher, willing to invest in your development as a school leader.

Commitment to safeguarding

Shrivenham Primary School and Faringdon Learning Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and preventing extremism. We expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. All post holders in regulated activity are subject to appropriate vetting procedures and a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Enhanced Check. Shortlisted candidates will be subject to online searches for publicly available information.
