Didcot Girls’ School is a dynamic school. In December 2015, the school was judged to be Outstanding. As Ofsted recognised, we invest in all of our staff: ‘Staff have exceptional opportunities for professional development. Staff feel valued and really like working in the school. Morale is very high.'(Ofsted).

We are a values-driven school, committed to high quality teaching and learning and respectful relationships within an inclusive learning community. Developing stimulating and student-centred teaching and learning is at the centre of our school development work. We work hard to ensure that all girls’ education enables our students to develop confidence, leadership skills and high levels of aspiration.

We are committed to continuous professional development and have wide-ranging training and development opportunities. We are also mindful of the competing demands people face in their lives and make every effort to accommodate flexible working.

The position

We are looking to recruit an Alternative Provision (Flexipod) Officer whose primary role is to support and deliver successful outcomes for a group of students unable to access and/or attend the school’s mainstream curriculum.

An important aspect of the role is the promotion of engagement among some students who find school particularly challenging. This is done by way of an in-school alternative provision, at which they are provided with additional pastoral as well as academic support. The post holder will also be expected to assist the school’s Safeguarding Team where needed.

For a full description of the role please see the attached Job Description. Please also see the attached Person Specification for the role.

This role could be combined with the current Alternative Provision Officer vacancy we are advertising.

Application process:

Please send a completed application form paying particular attention to the “skills and experience” section to:

Application deadline:           19th May 2022 with interviews scheduled for the following week

Please note that the school reserves the right to interview on receipt of applications and to appoint prior to the deadline, so early application is recommended.


Didcot Girls School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects staff working in all its schools to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check along with standard pre-employment safeguarding checks.

Please be aware that you will be required to bring your original qualification certificate(s), proof of residence and photographic ID to interview.

Didcot Girls School is an equal opportunities employer.
