We are searching for a special teacher to join our KS1 team.

We require an excellent class teacher, who has experience of working within KS1, to join our hard-working and fun-loving team. In the first instance this would be a part-time Maternity Cover position, working four days a week: full-time is possible for the right candidate. Although initially this is a temporary position, as an expanding school a permanent post may be available. This is a great opportunity for someone who wishes to develop their career in our successful and popular school, which is at the heart of an active rural community.

If you have:

  • Strong classroom organisational skills
  • A commitment to high standards of achievement
  • A flair for planning and delivering stimulating learning
  • An understanding of how children learn best
  • An ability to make the curriculum exciting and real
  • A desire to nurture the children in your care
  • Experience of working in Early Years (desirable but not essential)
  • Ability to lead Literacy across the school (desirable but not essential; please outline your experience as a subject lead in your application.)

Then we would really like to meet you!

We can offer:

  • Happy children who value learning and achieve high standards
  • A safe, caring learning environment
  • An enthusiastic and supportive staff team
  • On-going CPD programme and highly effective ECT Induction. 

Above all, we are seeking an inspirational and innovative teacher, who expects and achieves high standards, for our children. If this describes you then we would love to hear from you.

Personal visits to the school are warmly encouraged. However, in the current climate if you would prefer a virtual tour and conversation with Ali Waller-Davies, the headteacher. that can be arranged. Please contact Mrs Karen Furmidge in the school office (office@harrietsham.kent.sch.uk) to make an appointment.

At this stage it is uncertain as to the exact form the interviews will take; these will be held to conform to the DfE guidance at the time.
