Bishop Chavasse Church of England Primary School, opening in September, is now looking for our second Year R teacher to inspire, ignite imagination and instil a love of learning in our very first cohort of Reception pupils.

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an experienced Early Years/KS1 practitioner to play a pivotal role in setting up and developing an Early Years provision in a brand-new school which is part of the Tenax Schools Trust. Joining our school at this formative stage provides potential for ambitious candidates to grow quickly into middle or senior leadership posts, supported by the Founding Headteacher and a Trust dedicated to continually developing our staff through supportive partnerships with Trust schools and the Teaching School Alliance.

Our successful candidate will be a highly motivated good to outstanding teacher, and able to contribute to a strong, inclusive and cohesive ethos reflecting the school’s Christian character.

Our vision for Bishop Chavasse Church of England Primary School is for it to be at the forefront of developing new approaches to learning, embedding the ‘mastery’ approach to primary phase teaching and learning and securing the very best outcomes for pupils. Pupils will be inspired to embed the school’s values and develop personal character through additional wider curriculum activities and opportunities which motivate them, enable them to grow in confidence and cultivate thinking skills and creative potential beyond typical expectations.

To do this, we will need a committed, enthusiastic and inspiring teaching team, surrounded by dedicated support staff working closely together. Achieving the vision we have for Bishop Chavasse will require hard work, and a creative, can-do attitude, to build our reputation quickly within the community we serve.

To arrange an informal conversation about this post please contact Donna Weeks, Founding Headteacher, by email at [email protected]

Please submit your application via Kent Teach no later than midday on Wednesday 10th May 2017, taking note of the guidance notes for applicants.
