Bobbing Village School
The Timu Academy Trust is made up of two schools, Bobbing Village and Iwade School, both are based in Sittingbourne, Kent. Iwade School is currently an expanding two/three form entry school. Currently rated by Ofsted as Good (Iwade) and Outstanding (Bobbing). Each school has its own individual characteristics and sits at the centre of their community.
Both schools are geographically near each other and so the staff are easily able to work closely together which they do with great effect "Together Everyone Achieves More".
Timu means "team" in Swahili, a word which represents how we work at all levels within and across the schools.
Within the trust, we recognise everyone as an individual and we nurture, value and develop them. We aim to achieve the highest standards in all that we do and to have happy children and staff, eager and excited to come to school.
We work in collaboration with other schools and organisations seeking the best innovative practice in teaching, sharing new ideas and learning from others. We use research as a springboard for change.
We strive to make our schools even better, recruiting the very best to meet the needs of a changing world. We foster a positive attitude which allows everyone to develop new skills, build resilience and achieve their dreams.
Timu Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and an enhanced DBS disclosure. It is committed to equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
