We are looking for a caring, dynamic and resilient qualified teacher to join our staff team.

At interview your motivation for working with children will be explored as well as how you meet the person specification. The selection process will also consist of activities including working with some of our pupils. Appointment to this post will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure Application to the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Please apply using the Kent Teach online form and provide detail about how you feel you meet the person specification. Initially this position will be temporary until July 2023 and although full time working would be preferred we would consider part time. Please state in your application whether full or part time would be your preference.

Information about the school

Bysing Wood is a friendly Primary School located on the western outskirts of Faversham. The school is growing in popularity, building on a successful Ofsted and the fantastic range of facilities offered alongside a great atmosphere. Currently the school has 190 children on roll, organised in most year groups as single form of entry from Reception to Year 6, although Year 2 has 2 classes and Year 5 is likely to be next. A building project to become 2 form entry over the next few years has recently been completed. September 2018 saw the start of a Forest School provision on site and we opened a pre-school in January 2020, catering for 2,3 and 4 year olds. In March 2020, we were a founder member of EKC Schools Trust, which provides access to the EKC Group colleges' resources to further enrich our curriculum. At Bysing Wood Primary School we value each child as an individual and encourage them to achieve their personal best in a happy, secure, stimulating environment. The displays in school are a major strength and help evidence the rich, relevant, termly topic-based curriculum (with associated visitors and trips) on offer. Our staff are committed to developing the whole child, encouraging learning through knowledge, skills and practical activities. We also support them to become tolerant, respectful and caring individuals who enjoy their work and play and are proud of their achievements. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is high, pointing to the social and economic challenges facing a proportion of our families, although the profile is changing over time as the housing developments in Faversham come on stream.
