Primary Class Teacher

  • Heyford Park Free School is located at the heart of Heyford Park in Oxfordshire – the site of a former RAF and US Air Force base – and reflects the strong community spirit we have here at Heyford Park.
    It is our aim to know every one of our students well, providing an environment that not only allows them to achieve what they are truly capable of, but also equips them with excellent academic qualifications and a ‘can do’ attitude. We want our students to be able to create the right pathway for themselves while making a meaningful contribution to their communities.
     
  • At Heyford Park Free School, we strive for the best for every child.  For them to be enthusiastic, creative, curious, independent, caring and kind.  For them to achieve as much as they can through a “can do” attitude.  We believe that children learn best when given good role models, a stimulating learning environment in the widest sense and when their eyes are opened to unlimited possibilities.  At Heyford Park we are responsible for a child’s learning journey from Nursery all the way through to young adulthood.  This is a privilege. 
     
    • Are you passionate about teaching? 
    • Do you want to teach in a community school that knows each one of its children and their families well and where we can watch children progress from Nursery to sixth form? 
    • Do you want to get to know each one of the children in your class as an individual, understanding their needs and providing the best environment in which they can thrive?
     
    If the answers to these questions are “yes”, then you may be the person we are looking for to join our team.
     
    “We aim to know every one of our students well, providing an environment that allows them to achieve what they are truly capable of by promoting both academic progress and a ‘can do’ attitude.” (vision statement)
     
    Our all-through Free School opened in September 2013 and we have experienced rapid growth.  Our fantastic heritage site has been fully refurbished and provides a unique learning environment.
