Are you currently thinking about returning to work and aspire to work with children?  You may be retired and looking for a new challenge?  Wolvercote Primary School needs a Lunchtime Supervisor with a vision and a passion for working with children within primary education.

This is a key role within Wolvercote Primary School, providing support for children during lunchtime both in the playground and in the dining hall.

We are looking for someone who has high expectations of children’s achievement and behaviour; has a caring nature; enjoys building strong relationships and will be a positive role model for children. 

In return we offer a warm atmosphere with friendly children who strive to do their best; a dedicated and supportive team of staff and governors and excellent opportunities for professional development.  

What skills / experience are required

  • Good Standard of basic spoken and written English

  • Enjoy working with children

  • Previous experience in a similar role would be an advantage, but not essential

  • Good communication skills and a friendly manner

  • Patience, initiative and the ability to operate within a team environment

  • First Aid Certificate is desirable, if not a willingness to train

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 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.

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children. 

Commitment to safeguarding

The River Learning Trust and Wolvercote Primary School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and preventing extremism. All staff must ensure that the highest priority is given to following the guidance and regulations to safeguard children and young people. Please refer to MyNewTerm advert
