Palace Wood have a wonderful opportunity for you! We have a teaching role for one of our classes, this could be in key stage 1 or 2 depending on preference and strength.

We have worked hard at Palace Wood to make it not only an amazing place for children, but also to make it a brilliant place to work. We promise that you:

  • will have a voice
  • will be developed and supported
  • will be the leader of your classroom
  • will be able to undertake research
  • will be trusted
  • will be a learner too

You won't be held back by marking policies, data driven targets, formalised scrutinies of work and lessons, but will be given the autonomy to make the best decisions for your classroom and your children, ably supported by a focused and relevant professional learning programme.

Our children have developed a love of learning and embrace challenge; they are looking for a teacher who can provide them with this challenge. In return, they will strive to reach and go beyond your expectations.

By giving you agency, and through working together to create fantastic opportunities for our children, you will be able to create lasting memories. A parent recently said "When I see my child buzzing with enthusiasm after an exciting day at school I sometimes wish I was nine again so that I could go to Palace Wood."

To gain an understanding of our ethos and practice, we would encourage you to arrange a discussion with a member of the team - please contact headteacher@palacewood.kent.sch.uk to organise this.
