Schools this job is for


At Wayfield we inspire our children and staff to be ‘Proud to Achieve’. Wayfield is an incredible school, and we believe we are all capable of so many amazing things. We believe that our children get the best deal, and we inspire greatness from all. It is vital that we give our children as many different experiences as possible to ensure they are well equipped to succeed in today’s rapidly changing society. Our curriculum is carefully designed with the children’s specific needs and interests in mind. As a result, our children have the opportunity to experience visiting many different places both locally, wider afield across the country and Europe.

We work in collaboration with our Trust, The Primary First Trust, which currently consists of ten primary schools in Medway, Kent, and Bexley. This gives us a wide support network and allows our staff to grow professionally and our children to achieve excellence.

The appointed Class Teacher will need to

  • Inspire our children to be resourceful, independent, creative, and happy learners.
  • Be an enthusiastic team member who shares the vision of the school.
  • Be an effective communicator with staff, parents, and children.

To support the successful candidate, we can offer:

  • A supportive and friendly staff team, the most amazingly polite and hardworking children and supportive parents and carers.
  • Dedicated leadership time out of class.
  • Support to keep up to date with best practices, through The Primary First Trust networks and affiliated national bodies.
  • We support our staff with their professional and career development through routine coaching meetings with the Head Teacher.
  • Access to nationally recognised CPD such as the NPQ program.

Our aim will be to encourage and nurture your drive to develop into the very best teacher you can be.
