EYFS Teacher – Swale

Richmond Academy

The Stour Academy Trust are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and resilient EYFS teacher to join our passionate team at Richmond Academy, starting in September 2020.

Richmond Academy is undergoing an enriching transformation under the ‘strong and inspirational leadership’ of The Stour Academy Trust. Inspected by Ofsted in February 2019, the effective leadership was highlighted, “The headteacher has brought stability and a renewed sense of ambition to the school. She has won the confidence of staff, pupils and many parents with her clarity of vision and openness.”

Our support given to our teachers, including NQTs was also emphasised by Ofsted:

“Leaders provide effective support for teachers, many of whom are new to the school and the profession. Teachers are proud to work in the school and benefit from high quality training.”

“Teachers, almost all of whom started at the school in September 2018, and some of whom are new to the profession, are proud to work at the school. They feel well supported by leaders, who they believe care for their well-being. One member of staff who responded to Ofsted’s online survey wrote, ‘The leadership team are endlessly supportive and treat staff with respect. They have put in place an excellent work-life balance and always make time for their staff.’

“The school and trust provide time and opportunities for teachers to update their skills. For example, teachers moderate their assessment of pupils’ work with colleagues from other trust schools and benefit from training sessions led by experts from a local university.”

We are encouraging applications from both experienced teachers and NQTs

We can offer all successful applicants:

  • permanent contract
