We are looking for a highly motivated, skilled primary teacher who is passionate about making a difference to the lives of children in the Margate community. The academic year 2020-21 will be an exciting year for the community at Salmestone as the structure of the school changes, allowing vertical groupings.

We are confident you will want to join our team once you have visited. During their last visit Ofsted stated  ‘The Headteacher has established a culture of high expectations of both pupils and teachers. As a result, significant improvements have been secured in the quality of education provided by the school’.  At the last Ofsted inspection the school was graded, Good. Since the last inspection, the school has continued to develop and offers a high standard of education to all children.

Salmestone Primary School is proud to be part of The Kemnal Academy Trust. TKAT is one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in the South of England with 45 Primary and Secondary Academies in the TKAT Family.

All our staff have high aspirations for our children. We engage all of our children in their learning, developing a love of learning and so creating a community of confident independent learners who are well prepared for their futures. We have an open door policy for current and prospective parents; we encourage strong links between home and school for our children and their families, we are looking forward to welcoming a full cohort of new parents in September 2020. We believe in school and home working together effectively for the benefit of all of our children. At the heart of this is the provision of a safe and happy learning environment for all our children.
