About the role:  Tree Tops Primary Academy, a rapidly improving and successful school based in Maidstone, has an opportunity for a Nursery Teacher to join our academy from September 2019.  Initially joining us on a one-year maternity cover contract, we can offer our successful teacher the opportunity to embed within our incredibly positive and enthusiastic ethos at Tree Tops; all staff are supported and enjoy working within our friendly and collaborative environment.  We are able to offer the opportunity to work with amazing, well behaved and motivated children. We are proud to achieve small class sizes which we appreciate is a key advantage for teachers and children alike! 

Rest assured that we will endeavour to offer a substantive teaching position within the Trust family of schools once the fixed term maternity contract comes to an end. 

Working with us:  Tree Tops Primary Academy, located on the outskirts of Maidstone, is set in magnificent grounds with ample space for both outdoor learning and play. Our thriving nursery is located on site and offers an excellent start for our children’s education. We have separate and spacious facilities for Early Years, KS1 and KS2, as well as rooms for small group and specialist teaching.

We offer our children a range of additional experiences and support, including regular trips and visitors, sports coaching, after-school clubs, counselling and play therapy. The academy has been recognised as having ‘good’ leadership and management, and the whole staff team are striving for constant improvement together. 

What are we looking for in you?  To be successful you need to be a qualified teacher who is passionate and knowledgeable about primary teaching and possesses the ability to teach consistently at an excellent level. Whether you are at the start of your career or an expert teacher we focus on what attributes you will bring to the Academy and most importantly what impact you will have on our children. As a Trust, we feel it is important to be positive, fun and a real team player.

Being part of Leigh Academies Trust:  As of 1st January 2019, our Trust is comprised of 23 geographically organised academies (11 secondaries, 11 primaries and 1 special) educating over 15,000 students, and employing over 2,500 talented staff. 

Diversity at our core:  As a Trust, we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of age, gender, race, beliefs or disabilities which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise. The academy is committed to safeguarding children and successful candidates will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check.  Our commitment to safeguarding is underpinned by robust processes and checks which are in place across the Trust.
