School Administrator

25 hours per week,  8:30 am - 1:30 pm school term time only (plus occasional staff training days)

Grade 4 £18,426 - £18,795 pro-rata. (Actual salary: £10,369 - £10,557)

We are looking for an exceptional person to join our friendly and hardworking administrative team.  Working alongside our Administrative Officer and the Head teacher’s PA, this is a key role in ensuring the smooth day-to-day running of our school. 

You’ll be a confident and efficient person with good administrative skills, and you’ll be able to carry out a range of office tasks including computer-based work, handling email and telephone enquiries, and data entry.  You will have strong people skills and will be confident at dealing with a wide range of enquiries – from parents, colleagues, and members of the public – and you will be an excellent communicator. 

You’ll probably already have some office experience, and may have previously worked in a school, but either way we’re looking for someone who enjoys learning new skills, is conscientious and flexible, and thrives in a busy working environment. Working with colleagues in our school office you will help to ensure that our administration team provides an excellent service to parents, staff, visitors and children at all times.  The successful candidate will need to have good understanding of the importance of safeguarding and confidentiality within schools. 

Wood Farm Primary School is conveniently located in the Headington area of Oxford, in beautiful modern buildings and grounds.  We have a large and very welcoming staff team, friendly children, and we work closely with the adjoining Nursery School – part of our federation of schools.
