Larkrise Primary School is looking for an experienced, passionate and innovative Key Stage 2 Teacher to join our existing highly committed and determined team in September 2018.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our school at a time where your expertise will help shape the future of Larkrise.

Please note that this position is only suitable for qualified teachers, either MPR or UPR, and is not suitable for NQT’s.

Are you Curious, Confident, Creative, Caring and able to Celebrate the success of others and yourself? If so, Larkrise could be the School for you. These are the core values that underpin our curriculum and are ingrained in our school.

In response to our recent Ofsted judgement we have been reflecting on practice in our school and have been quick to respond to areas of concern highlighted in the report. We accept that we need to make improvements and our staff are ready to embrace the challenges ahead. We need equally committed teachers to join us on this journey.

The school has strong links with the local and global community. The international dimension is embedded throughout the school and in particular through our fantastic story based curriculum, in which the whole curriculum is taught under the umbrella of a story.

We are proud of the cultural diversity at the school, which gives Larkrise its unique character and enriches the lives and learning of all children. We currently have 36 different first languages within our school community.

We have excellent outdoor learning provision (including Forest Schools). We provide outstanding sports, music and performing arts provision. We have a school Samba Band that is widely recognised at community events such as the Cowley Road Carnival. You may have seen our yellow Samba T-shirts and heard the rhythm of the Samba Band at many events around East Oxford.

Please come along to visit our wonderful school to get a feel for our thriving environment.

Everyone within Larkrise Primary School has a responsibility for, and is committed to, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and for ensuring that they are protected from harm.
