Join Our Team

"Staff are unanimously proud to work at the school and feel that leaders 'genuinely care' about their well-being." (Ofsted, May 2019). 

 

"A typical comment from one member of staff was, "We have a great team spirit and are challenged to be the best that we can be."

 

"Staff are encouraged to undertake further training and to progress in their careers. Teachers new to the profession report that they are extremely well supported and given much helpful guidance."

(Ofsted, October 2015)

 

 

CLASS TEACHER

COME AND JOIN OUR OUTSTANDING SCHOOL

Full time

Salary: NQT / MPS

Start date: September 2021

 

St Dominic Savio is a great place to teach at! We are an “outstanding school” (Ofsted, February 2020) and are in the top 1% of all schools nationally for pupil outcomes.

"Staff are unanimously proud to work at the school and feel that leaders 'genuinely care' about their well-being." (Ofsted). 

 

We believe in academic rigour and traditional values and our children behave impeccably. Our knowledge-rich curriculum was rated as “top notch” by Ofsted. Our school is very lucky to have excellent facilities and spacious grounds.

 

We are a family centred school and value the importance of flexible working patterns for staff. We are looking for a class teacher who has high expectations of learning, achievement and behaviour and enjoys working well as a team. Most paperwork ‘requirements’ that are asked of teachers – we don’t do at our school. We want our teachers to focus on the job they love: teaching!

 

We are looking for:

  • A teacher (this is an ideal post for a newly-qualified teacher) who has high expectations for every child.
  • A teacher interested in educational research and uses this to improve their teaching.
  • Someone who can work both independently and as part of a team.

 

We can offer you:

  • A positive, warm and welcoming work environment.
  • 2 form entry – a partner teacher in every year group.
  • A research informed school that encourages collaboration between staff.
  • Continuous professional development to help you achieve your professional goals.
  • A school that stops unnecessary workload and gives additional release time when needed.
  • Teaching without disruption – our children love learning.
  • Family-friendly working practices which support staff and their families.
  • An experienced and fun staff team.
  • Excellent support and development from a visible leadership team who look after you.
  • A vibrant location near Reading with great transport links.
