BEST KEPT SECRET IN KENT! WE ARE A HIDDEN GEM!
We think our school is very special. We make learning irresistible for our children and staff through an experience based curriculum. You could be the lucky teacher who gets to take your class to the local curry house, create a film trailer, make an African stew, or cuddle our well-loved guinea pigs! We now have a great opportunity for a new member for our KS2 teaching team. This is initially a temporary post as a year 5 teacher for the Summer term. During our recent Ofsted [March 2018], the inspector couldn't help but notice the strength of our commitment to the wellbeing of all our staff and children.
What are we like? Well, as a staff we make time to have a laugh together, enjoy learning with the children, use up glue sticks and blue tack, file things in safe places, eat plenty of chocolate, dress up, organise trips, join in and generally have a great time at work. Check out our Facebook page to see some of the exciting things we get up to!
How do we ensure staff wellbeing and a manageable work/life balance? Well, we have reduced marking and replaced this with verbal feedback, planning is carried out in phase groups, and as well as PPA one afternoon a week, we finish at 1.45 p.m. every Friday.
So what are we looking for? Well, we need someone who will fit us like a glove and be an outstanding teacher and a good team player. If you are interested in finding out more, come and visit us. Please contact our Headteacher, Lorraine Wickens to arrange a visit.
