What skills and experience we're looking for

An opportunity has arisen to work with a friendly, caring nurturing team at a small village school on the outskirts of Oxford. We are seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic teacher to join us from September 2024, initially for one academic year, to cover a maternity leave.

ECTs are warmly welcomed to apply and will be supported by experienced staff who will help them develop and grow on their teaching journey.

What the school offers its staff

Dr South’s is a four-class village school, located at the heart of the community. There are excellent links with parents and the wider community, and, thanks to local support, other primary schools can only dream of the facilities we have.

As well as the purpose-built Lin Cooper Practical Skills Building, where there are dedicated cookery lessons each day and a designated art area, we have access to The Jacobs’ Field for Forest School and outdoor learning for all children. We also have a thriving orchestra, and enjoy success in local sporting events.

Islip is easy to get to from the A34, the M40 and from Oxford itself. We have strong links with the local church and we are proud to have been serving the Islip community for over 300 years. Come and meet us and find out how you can be part of our onward journey! We would be very happy to show you round our lovely school, so do get in touch.

The closing date for applications is 9.00am on Friday 17th May with interviews scheduled for Wednesday 22nd May. A pdf application form is on the website, and a Word version is available from the school office.
