About the Role
We are looking for a team member who holds high standards and is dedicated to commit to care for our easy to maintain and beautiful building, being flexible to the full requirements of the role and how this will develop as the school grows in size and within the community. We seek team members who share the dream and pro-actively demonstrate the values and attitudes to make Green Park Village Primary Academy a truly special experience for our children and families.
Green Park Village Primary Academy is a new primary school built in a new housing development in Reading, Green Park Village, which opened in September 2020 in its permanent school building. In September 2023, the academy will have Reception to Year Three cohorts. The school will grow to be full two-form primary, with space to open a Nursery provision for pre-school children. The school serves a diverse community of families both local and from across Reading.
There is no doubt about it, continuing Green Park Village Primary Academy on its next phase will take vision, dedication and hard work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to see the academy continue to take shape over the next few years.
