About Southwold Primary and Nursery School

Southwold Primary and Nursery School is a flourishing mixed, non-selective school admitting students from the ages of 2 to 11. Based in North Oxfordshire and 10 minutes from Junction 9 on the M40, the school benefits from excellent links to London, Oxford, and Reading.

We are part of The White Horse Federation, a multi-academy trust with 31 schools across the South and share their high standards of excellence.

Our curriculum has knowledge at its heart: we want our children to experience the joy of learning, and we know that this helps them become confident, articulate and resilient young people.

We offer a rich and stimulating education comprised of a knowledge-rich curriculum, diverse cultural and extracurricular opportunities, and a strong pastoral support system. All children are welcomed in our inclusive community, and all are challenged to be the best they can be.

With the support of the trust, we are able to engage with the best teachers, the best universities and a wide range of the 

most prominent employers in the country to ensure that all our children are equipped with the knowledge and desire to be the best in whatever path they wish to follow. This ethos is embodied in our Trust values.

About The White Horse Federation

The White Horse Federation was founded with the aim of improving the life chances and raising the aspirations of young people. To achieve these goals, the Trust believes in the power of a first-rate, knowledge-rich curriculum: such an education is the best foundation for helping young people to succeed and overcome social barriers, irrespective of their backgrounds or starting points.

The White Horse Federation currently comprises thirty-one schools, making it the largest education provider in the South West. Its five secondary schools, twenty-five primary schools and two special schools serve a range of urban and rural communities across Swindon, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Reading.

As an associate college for the National Institute of Teaching, the trust delivers the highest quality of teacher and leader development across the region. Our schools benefit from this by having access to a stream of well-qualified and expertly-trained teachers, middle leaders and senior leaders.    

Working in communities that are often materially and socially deprived, The White Horse Federation seeks to provide a first-rate education and to raise ambitions at all its schools. We believe in replicating in the state sector what is most often found in the independent sector; we are committed to ensuring that our students receive the quality of education and access to the same sorts of opportunities their peers whose parents can pay for education receive.

Our aim is for our students to leave our schools ready to take their place in the world - well-educated, motivated and with strong leadership skills, personally accomplished and determined to make a positive and lasting contribution to the world. We firmly believe that a child’s background should not be a barrier to success and we are committed to delivering an education that broadens students’ horizons in a truly transformative way.


The White Horse Federation offers a competitive benefits package which includes:

  • Generous pension scheme 
  • Flexible family friendly policies
  • Apprenticeship opportunities
  • Employee assistance programme
  • Leadership development and coaching
  • Access to mental health first aiders in each school
  • Staff support networks including safeguarding and menopause
  • Salary sacrifice car purchase scheme 
  • Staff discounts via Reward Gateway

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

The White Horse Federation values uniqueness and recognises the benefit of having a diverse workforce. We value the contributions of all staff from a wide range of backgrounds and we are committed to building an inclusive workplace that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. At The White Horse Federation, we believe that everyone should be treated with fairness and respect and share a commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at all of our schools. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and operate a fair recruitment process, free from discrimination against the protected characteristics, in line with the Equality Act 2010.
