The head teacher and governors of High Oakham Primary School wish to appoint an enthusiastic, kind and respectful senior Midday Supervisor to join our team during lunchtimes.

This is a great time to come and work at our school as we implement a new way of structuring playtime focussed on the needs and interests of the children ensuring that their wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything we do.

We can offer you:

  • Fantastic children, who are keen to learn and join in and are a pleasure to work with
  • Welcoming, friendly and supportive staff
  • Strong leadership
  • Well-behaved children who love being involved and valued
  • Exceptional levels of teamwork at all levels
  • A culture where everyone works together to improve children’s opportunities and staff skills and confidence
  • A strong sense of community and belonging where everyone is valued

This is an exciting opportunity to come with us as we embark on our journey to be a beacon school, a hub in the community. We are a good school with a strong aspiration to provide the best education possible for our children. Our forward-looking outlook affords all staff the chance to be creative, collaborative and develop the skills, passions and attributes of all children. A good sense of humour and an appreciation of life and respectful, positive connections are really important to us – do you have these?
