Teaching Personnel are excited to present a great opportunity for a Key Stage 1 Teacher to work with one of our partner primary schools in Barnehurst. The role will start immediately and will last until the end of the academic year (the school are also interested in candidates looking for a permanent contract). The school is located just a five minute walk from Barnehurst station (Thameslink, Southeastern). The school is part of one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in the South of England and is Ofsted rated ‘Good’ showing evidence of improving towards outstanding (Feb 2018).

The school has excellent resources with a modern building and lots of outdoor space which is fully utilised for student learning. The school has a scouting area for campfires, class allotments and a pond for outdoor science. The school works not just within its trust but also with 10 local primary schools to ensure standards are consistently high. This cross school collaboration allows for sharing of good practice and also provides opportunities for joint events such as sporting fixtures, curriculum days and community celebration.

The school is a fully inclusive school with excellent provision for SEND and staff that work continually hard to close the gap in levels of attainment for disadvantaged students. The school has an excellent well-being provision designed to help support students to be resilient and mentally healthy. The school aims to engage and support its students in the development in all areas, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

Staff have the confidence and support of the leadership to take risks and try new ideas to the benefit of pupils. An example of this is the introduction of outdoor lessons to improve the standard of boys’ writing by helping them to imagine settings and situations. The school is involved in weekly scouting activities involving all students and staff which allows students to learn from experience. This ties firmly into the schools belief in the concept of ‘learning by doing’ education .

Pupils are proud of the school and say their lessons are fun and interesting. The behaviour in lessons is very good and pupils show great respect for their teachers. The broad and stimulating curriculum captures the interest of pupils and makes them want to progress quickly. There is an ethos of high expectations where all staff and pupils strive to do their best.
