Abbey Woods Academy is a rapidly improving and friendly school in South Oxfordshire. We are an easy commute from the surrounding towns such as Abingdon, Didcot and Wallingford, along with good transport links to Oxford and Reading.

We are offering two unique opportunities to join our school and trust as we move from strength to strength. Our school has an on-site Nursery and Reception class, and this is a great opportunity for the right person with vision and passion to be appointed as EYFS Lead and shape the provision across the full stage. We are also looking to appoint an EYFS/KS1 teacher to work with the EYFS Lead across the stages and this is a potential opportunity for an NQT or main scale teacher.

At Abbey Woods Academy our goal is to give the children in our community the very best start we can. Our children would welcome teachers who will nurture their potential and lead our EYFS (recently judged as good under the new Ofsted framework) to become outstanding provision. 

Abbey Woods Academy is proud to be part of Anthem Schools Trust, a multi-academy trust that creates ambitious and successful schools where every child thrives. Through the Trust, we provide high-quality professional development, coaching and leadership opportunities. This includes a number of specialist Trust-wide roles that offer talented teachers and leaders the opportunity to develop in their career and make an even bigger difference to children and young people.

There is potential for an exceptional candidate to join this team of leading practitioners and work with us both in Abbey Woods and in our other schools, and to play a significant role in shaping up our Early Years programme, working alongside our EYFS Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) and additionally our moderator at one of our local schools in Reading. 

Visits to the school are positively encouraged; please contact Caroline Tidmarsh on 01865 340420 to organise a visit and see our website www.abbeywoodsacademy.oxon.sch.uk for an application pack. Completed applications should be returned to Caroline Tidmarsh at ctidmarsh@abbeywoodsacademy.oxon.sch.uk.

CVs will not be accepted.

Closing date: Sunday 15th December.
Applications considered on receipt and interviews held shortly after.
