Temporary Contract from September 2020

We are looking for a friendly, inspiring and well motivated teacher to join our brilliant KS1 team with effect from September 2020.  Applications are welcome from all qualified teachers, ideally with at least 1 year of experience.

We are looking for someone that shares our ethos of growing and learning together, with the passion, creativity and energy to deliver a stimulating curriculum for our children that is both engaging, challenging and fun. 

Ideally, you will have outstanding experience of teaching in KS1 or Early Years and a clear understanding of how to support and nurture the development of young children. Proven experience of teaching synthetic phonics is essential as is the ability to enhance children's learning and development through both teacher directed sessions and child initiated activities in order to make informed observations which will identify next steps.

Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to offer them an environment of opportunity and discovery through a rich and broad curriculum, with as wide a range of activities as possible. We are seeking a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who is able to nurture and inspire our children, and provide them with every opportunity to develop their full potential.

In return we can offer you a competitive salary, 1 full day PPA release per fortnight, contributory pension scheme (Teachers' Pension), and access to a range of local and national discounts and cashback through the Kent Rewards website.

We have a supportive and caring team of teachers, support staff and Governors, led by a strong and visionary team of school leaders. 

As our school is currently closed, please contact our School Buisiness Manager, Claire Williiams by telephone, 01233 621616 or email clairewilliams@godinton.kent.sch.uk to arrange an informal chat.

Information about the school

Welcome to Godinton Primary School.

When you step inside our school, you will find an exciting environment of creativity and discovery, where children’s natural curiosity is stimulated and their capacity to learn is nurtured. We are very proud of our ethos, which provides a supportive, family atmosphere with an emphasis on ensuring that our children are happy and confident individuals who love coming to school.

At Godinton Primary School, our team works hard to provide every child with a well-rounded education, enabling them to reach their full potential and succeed wherever their strengths and skills may lie. We strive for academic excellence in our pupils but believe that this should be delivered alongside an enriching and creative curriculum.

We enjoy stand-alone Academy status and have been graded as GOOD by Ofsted at our recent inspection (March 2018).

Tucked safely away on the Godinton Park Estate, its only when you step within the school gate that you can fully appreciate the school’s privileged outside space.

Our school grounds are both extensive and beautiful, stretching around the entire building and providing a wonderful natural backdrop. Children at Godinton benefit from vast playing fields, adventure play areas, two playgrounds and a thriving wildlife garden and environmental area. A broad area of woodland, also within the grounds, provides an inspiring space for curriculum enrichment, as a stimulus for poetry or creative writing or as the location for scientific nature trails.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school, where you can see for yourself what a special place Godinton Primary School is.

Miss Jill Talbot
