We are looking for a wonderful teacher to join our team in one of our mixed age KS2 classes. Perhaps you're looking to take the next step in your career and are interested in taking a lead in a core subject, or maybe you're just starting out and want to experience life in a rural school. Whatever your situation, we'd love to hear from you.

Laddingford is a small, nurturing, village school serving a vibrant community. We have a hard-working and highly motivated staff team who regularly go the extra mile to achieve the best possible outcomes for every one of our 80 children. We are currently going through a leadership transition - we have a strong internal interim team in place with many years' experience at the school, and are interviewing to recruit a substantive head for January 2024.  

We are a small and incredibly supportive team where everyone is encouraged to be innovative and try new things. The positivity of the staff team and the culture of the school as a whole are often remarked upon by visitors. This extends to our relationships with parents and members of the wider village community who are highly supportive and actively involved in school life. We achieved a 'Good' Ofsted in March 2023. 

Nurture-based practice, including restorative approaches to behaviour management, underpin all that we do. I would encourage you to visit the school prior to your application, as well as looking at our Ofsted report, Facebook page @LaddingfordCEP and watching the following short film to get a feel for who we are; 



Visits can be arranged by telephoning the school office on 01622 871270.

We look forward to welcoming you to the school.

Information about the school

Laddingford is a small rural Primary School in easy reach of Barming, Maidstone, Marden, Paddock Wood and Tonbridge.

Welcoming everyone, building foundations, leaving no-one behind

Laddingford St Mary’s is a happy and vibrant school where children and staff are excited about learning. Our aim is for children to leave Laddingford not only with knowledge but also with the skills and disposition needed to be a successful lifelong learner; throughout all lessons we focus on skills such as inquisitiveness, independence and a positive mind-set. As a result, our children are excited about their learning, hardworking, focused and confident.

We strive unashamedly for academic excellence for all children in our care, whilst also nurturing and celebrating the wide range of other talents that make them special and unique. We have a fantastic staff team, who are dedicated to their roles and passionate not only about our children’s education but also their holistic development. Our community's happiness and well-being are our number one priority. Our calm and nurturing atmosphere is underpinned by our core Christian values, as a Church of England Primary School we strive to provide children with a sound moral compass which will support them throughout their education and beyond.

At maximum capacity, our school can educate just 91 children. This means that we truly are one family, we go on whole school trips together and at playtime and lunchtime children socialise happily together across year groups. We currently have 80 children on roll and the class structure is flexible depending on the size of each year group.

Laddingford St Mary’s is a very special place, our school has a warmth and positive buzz that is best experienced firsthand. If you are interested in what we have to offer and think this could be the right school for you, we look forward to hearing from you.

As a school, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and all staff are subject to DBS checks.
