The Trustees of Riviera Education Trust thank you for your interest in the post of Receptionist at Oldway Primary School. We are a successful, oversubscribed and outstanding primary school and nursery in the heart of Paignton, and also the lead school in the Torbay Teaching School Alliance.  


Oldway Primary School is part of the Riviera Education Trust which is a multi-academy trust consisting of three local primary schools: Oldway Primary School, Shiphay Learning Academy and Roselands Primary School. We work in collaboration with Roselands Primary School and Shiphay Learning Academy in order to benefit all of the children in the Trust. Working in partnership with other schools helps to strengthen our provision and provide educational excellence so that every pupil has the best possible learning experience and is prepared for future life.


The Trust is looking to appoint a School Receptionist working 25 hours per week, across 5 days per week, term time for two terms until July 2021. Initially the successful candidate will provide administrative support for the Trust until the wider opening of school allows parents back onto the school site. 


The successful candidate will be the first point of contact for those entering the school and will be required to meet and greet parents and children, have a calm and approachable manner, both in person and via telephone, and be confident in using a computer to carry out administrative responsibilities. Previous experience working in a customer facing role would be an advantage but not essential. Ability to work on your own initiative and a sense of humour are vital.


The working hours are 25 hours per week, (Monday to Friday 8.30am -1.30pm) for 39 weeks per year. The commencing salary will be £10,529 which is Grade B, Scale Point 2 (Full Time Equivalent £18,198).
