The Federation of The Downs and Northbourne CEP are looking to appoint a part time maternity cover pupil premium champion to join our team at The Downs CEP from February/March 2019 (term four).

Are you an effective practitioner with a passion for creating inspiring learning opportunities?

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your career further by joining our team of dedicated staff who work hard to ensure that every child is supported and challenged to aspire to be the best they can be. We pride ourselves on the nurturing atmosphere and Christian ethos that is experienced by everyone who works in, or visits our school.

We operate across the school in three teams: lower (R and 1), middle (2, 3 and 4) and upper (5 and 6). The pupil premium champion works with upper school across both years 5 and 6, taking groups of children in order to accelerate progress towards expected or greater depth. This position is for three days a week (currently Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday but this is negotiable). Occasionally class cover may be required.

As an experienced teacher, you will be able to access professional development to meet your professional needs and continue to develop your practice.  

If you are an aspiring leader, we will support you in your development. We are committed to identifying potential and talent and growing future leaders!

Information about the school

The Downs and Northbourne CEP Schools became a Federation in September 2011. The Downs is a large two form entry Primary School, in Walmer. Northbourne is a rural five class primary school close to the village. Both schools take pride in having a strong sense of community and family. Both schools have extensive grounds, including forest school at Northbourne, and excellent resources. Both schools share a Governing Body and work very closely on school leadership, improvement and development opportunities.

Our Ofsted inspections graded both schools as good. Each school has a strong Christian ethos and active links with the local churches as demonstrated by our outstanding SIAMS inspections.

In April 2019, The Federation of The Downs and Northbourne CEP schools became a founding member of the Deal Education Learning Alliance Trust (DEALT) which is a MAT comprised of seven local primary schools within Deal and the surrounding villages. This unique and exciting collaboration of local schools work together to ensure the very best outcomes for all pupils and their families within our town.
