Staff Vacancies

Oldway Primary School


Oldway Primary School as part of the Riviera Primary Academy Trust, is considering applications from suitably qualified persons to fulfil the role of supply teacher.
The school is a large primary school based in Paignton with 22 classes and we frequently require supply teachers across all key stages. We pay a fixed sum for all supply work undertaken in our school. The daily rate will be £135, which for mornings or afternoons will be broken down to £75 for morning supply and £60 for afternoon supply. You must be in class in time to receive any handover information, prepare for teaching and take the registration.


Supply teachers may be required to cover playground duty if the person they are replacing is rostered on that day. There will be an expectation that any written work done during the day is marked for basic accuracy to inform the class teacher upon their return.

All supply teachers will be welcome to attend staff meetings for their own professional development; a copy of the meetings taking place each term will be displayed in the staff room.
If you are interested, please contact:
