All teachers want to make a difference; to offer children the best of opportunities to learn and to succeed, to grow as happy, accomplished sociable young people.

Come and make a difference at Wittersham!

We are seeking to appoint a KS1 teacher for September 2019, for 3 days a week, who has a proven track record of excellent practice.

You will be part of a forward thinking team who put children's learning and well-being at the heart of everything they do.  In our June 2016 'good' Ofsted report, 100% of parents said they would recommend the school to others and HMI reported, "staff are overwhelmingly positive about all aspects of the school. They are proud to belong to the school, feel well supported and share high expectations of learning, behaviour and attitudes. "

If you are passionate about children's learning, ambitious about developing outstanding practice and a team player with a sense of fun, then Wittersham is the school for you.

We want a teacher who is:

  • Enthusiastic, committed and has high expectations of pupils and themselves
  • Committed to raising standards of achievement
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and keen to work as part of a motivated team
  • Able to be supportive of the school's Christian, caring ethos

We can offer you:

  • Happy, engaged and articulate children who are eager to learn and proud of their school
  • Good professional development opportunities both externally and with a Headteacher experienced in developing professionals through National Support work and mentoring
  • A friendly, creative and committed team of staff and a school with a happy, positive atmosphere
  • A supportive and enthusiastic Governing Body and parenting community
  • Being part of the forward thinking Tenterden Rural Alliance of schools which includes opportunities for further professional development, participation in national action research projects and links with schools nationwide through Whole Education
  • A caring, thriving and welcoming environment with strong ties to the community
  • A school in beautiful surroundings with a large sports pitch, swimming pool, reflection garden and nature area

Come and see for yourself or contact the Headteacher for an informal chat to find out more.  Visits are warmly encouraged and can be arranged by contacting the school office on 01797 270329.
