‘It is better to know how to learn than to know.’ Dr. Seuss.

Are you a good learner and excited to develop the learning skills of the children you teach? Are you passionate about providing all children with the opportunity to think and to learn? If so we have a truly exciting opportunity for you!

We are looking for an inspiring teacher (NQT or experienced) to join our forward-thinking team from September 2018.

At Otford, we believe that children should be independent and innovative, resilient and resourceful. We want them to be involved in every aspect of their learning, reflect on their successes and build upon them.

Our children achieve well but we also want them to remember their learning experience at our school with a smile and with laughter. We want them to leave effective learners and well-prepared for their future. We want to celebrate every child’s achievement whether it is in Geography or Grammar, Music or Mathematics; we want a teacher who feels it is a privilege to be able to teach and learn from the children at Otford.

Otford is a fabulous place for learning because we already have:

  • Dedicated, hard-working staff who are passionate
  • Amazing children who are kind, courageous and curious
  • A community that helps each other and develops together
  • Supportive parents that want to help more!
  • A truly spectacular site with amazing potential for outdoor learning
  • Governors who are supportive, offer professional challenge and embrace new ideas

If this intrigues you, then you may well be matched to our school! Please do arrange a visit; we would love to show you around.
