Job vacancy details
Due to retirement, Oak View Academy is looking to appoint an administration assistant to work in our friendly but busy office, starting from 1st September 2020.
Why work for Oak View Academy
Our school has improved immeasurably over the last 6 years and we are incredibly proud of the progress made. In March 2017 we were graded as being a ‘good’ school through Ofsted. We have lower than average class sizes and our focus is on the wellbeing of the children we support, as well as their education. We encompass a holistic approach to the curriculum and offer our students opportunities many other schools can’t. Examples of this are the residential visits, free-swimming lessons and a free breakfast club. Our curriculum is more than just learning!
We are a warm and welcoming team. We have a well-established Senior Leadership Team who are understanding and caring, not only about our children but our staff. Our staff are given an additional day’s holiday for Birthdays which can be taken during term time. A good work life balance is fundamental to our staff’s well being and as a result our success. We take great pride in our school environment and recognise the impact that this has on our staff and children’s wellbeing.
As part of the North West Academies Trust we can offer fantastic opportunities for CPD and career development. Only recently our Deputy Head was appointed as Head of School at another school and we are always looking to promote from within when possible.
What we are looking for
The role will include answering the telephone; being the first point of contact for visitors to the school; ensuring the school pupil databases are accurate; collating school meals for the day; opening post and deliveries; diary organisation and admin support for our Principal, SBM and staff. You will be working with the support of our School Business Manager and training will be provided for the school systems but knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and G-Suite are essential. The hours for this role are 8.00am until 3.30pm.
Closing date is 9th July noon.
