Advert

Wentworth is a popular, welcoming and inclusive three form entry school.  Governors are seeking to appoint an exceptional and dynamic leader with an unwavering passion for learning.  Your vision and flair will enable you to build on current success to drive further school improvement.

Our motto ‘Achieving Happily’ underpins every aspect of school life.  You will encourage high-quality teaching and learning through a curriculum designed to inspire all learners, where challenge and resilience nurture learners’ confidence, stimulate their curiosity, and sows the seeds for a life-long love of learning.

We value our staff for their positivity and determination to provide an exciting learning environment that encourage those next steps. Continuing professional development both within school and externally is supported. We are also a hub school for Kent and Medway Training providing initial teaching training.

We acknowledge and support the mental health and wellbeing of our staff, children and their families not simply during the current difficult times but as an integral part of who we are as a school ensuring all stakeholders are able to achieve happily.

Governors recognise and respect the different experiences, ideas and backgrounds of the school community and the enrichment opportunities this brings to us all.   

If you believe Wentworth could fulfil your career aspiration, we are looking for someone who:

  • Will put the best interests of our children at the heart of all their decisions.
  • Can demonstrate strong leadership, strategic thinking and resilience to manage the school effectively, meet targets and deliver high quality education.
  • Can inspire, motivate and support staff, and pupils, to reach their full potential.
  • Can ensure our finances are well managed so that we remain secure as a ‘going concern’
  • Will, like governors, have the desire to create a school with the attributes to be judged outstanding by Ofsted.

What we can offer you:

  • A school where children enjoy their learning and embrace the notion ‘even better if ..’
  • Enthusiastic children, eager to learn, who are well-behaved and have excellent attendance.
  • A dedicated and hard-working team of staff – both teachers and support staff.
  • Strong parental support, a proactive PTA, and excellent links with the local community and schools.

 Should you wish to visit the school please contact Mrs Allison Collier, SBM, allison.collier@wentworthonline.co.uk or telephone 01322 225694 ext. 204 to book an appointment.  Thank you.
