Come & join our OUTSTANDING team at Cliftonville Primary & Pre-School. 

Due to the promotion of a teacher and our school's expansion we would like to appoint teachers to two posts from the autumn term, September 2019.  It may be possible to start contracts in Term 6 to give you a headstart in getting to know your children.

Our last Ofsted inspection, November 2016, judged all aspects of the school to be outstanding but for us, outstanding doesn't mean perfect and there is still work to be done! 

There are good career progression routes for teachers in the early stages of their careers and high-quality continuing professional development including our bespoke middle leaders programme and nationally accredited courses NPQML/SL/H.  We were asked to contribute to DfE research on CPD, published November 2018, as we have a much higher retention rate of teachers than the national picture.

We are anticipating that posts will be in KS2 and KS1, so please include your key stage preference in your application.

It is a really exciting place to work and we are at the cutting edge of some very innovative and exemplary practice.  Staff report feeling well-supported and mentoring for newly qualified teachers is excellent.  The senior leadership team tries hard to ensure demands placed on staff are reasonable and proportionate to outcomes for children and that the important job of teaching is genuinely balanced with having a life beyond the school gates.

The school reserves the right to bring forward the closing date if sufficient applications have been received.

Please come and have a look at us in action - just about everyone who visits, no matter what post, applies as our children 'sell the school' much better than any advert!




Information about the school

We are one of the largest primary schools in Kent with nearly 800 children on roll, including a 52-place pre-school. Our Ofsted inspection, November 2016, found every aspect of the school to be OUTSTANDING. This represents a remarkable turnaround for the school which is attributable to the dedication and professionalism of ALL staff. A new teaching block opened in November 2015 with eight new classrooms, a second hall and staff facilities. Our school is warm and welcoming to children, their families and staff. We are committed to maintaining our outstanding school in an environment that promotes intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual development. As with any school, there are challenges...but the rewards of working at Cliftonville are huge. The school became an academy in December 2013, a partner in a small local Multi Academy Trust called the Coastal Academies Trust. The school holds a number of important accreditations including the Inclusion Quality Mark and the Continuous Professional Learning and Development Quality Mark.
