TIMU Academy Trust
The Timu Academy Trust is made up of two schools, Bobbing Village and Iwade School, both of which are based in Sittingbourne, Kent. Bobbing School is a one form entry school and Iwade School is currently an expanding two/three form entry school.
Both schools became a formal federation in 2007 and following their successful Ofsteds in November 2012 took the decision to convert to academy status in June 2014. Both schools are geographically near each other and so staff are easily able to work closely together which they do with great effect "Together Everyone Achieves More".
We converted both Bobbing Village School and Iwade School into academies in June 2014 and formed the multi academy trust. Both schools had a further very successful Ofsted in May 2017.
Timu means "team" in Swahili, a word which represents how we work at all levels within and across the schools.
Within the trust, we recognise everyone as an individual and we nurture, value and develop them. We aim to achieve the highest standards in all that we do and to have happy children and staff, eager and excited to come to school.
We work in collaboration with other schools and organisations seeking the best innovative practice in teaching, sharing new ideas and learning from others. We use research as a springboard for change.
We strive to make our schools even better, recruiting the very best to meet the needs of a changing world. We foster a positive attitude which allows everyone to develop new skills, build resilience and achieve their dreams.
Timu Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and an enhanced DBS disclosure. It is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
