Job summary

Want a great job, in a great school in an idyllic location?
Our school underwent an OfSTED inspection in March 2018 and we maintained our judgement as a good school. You will have to work hard as we are a small rural school, but only on the things that make a difference. We only recruit people who are passionate about making a difference to children’s lives, people who challenge themselves to keep on improving. This means our working relationships can be relatively relaxed and informal. People love working at St Michael’s; we are warm, welcoming, positive, supportive and always looking forward with the two other schools we collaborate with.
You will be joining a small team that makes the best use of our environment. We are a community school with pupils from the village of Withyham (20 minutes away from Tunbridge Wells) and the wider area; all are welcome including those with a faith and those with none. We work together to foster children who are compassionate,respectful, happy, tolerant, curious and collaborative as well as academically successful.
We are looking for a teacher who:
· Has a proven record of success as a class teacher (or on teaching practice) and expertise in empowering children to make rapid progress.
· Demonstrates optimism about children and expects the highest possible standards.
· Nurtures pupils’ emotional wellbeing.
We offer you:
· Sensible and successful systems, based on research, with a commitment to reduce workload whenever possible.
· Tailored CPD with a focus on well-being for pupils and staff
· A positive, warm and welcoming working environment.
· Experienced, intelligent, lively colleagues.
