Schools this job is for
The Stour Academy Trust are looking to recruit enthusiastic and resilient class teachers to start September 2020.
Due to the collaborative nature of the Trust, these vacancies could be at any one of the following schools:
Water Meadows Primary School
Water Meadows was graded Outstanding for Leadership and Early Years in March 2019, with Overall Effectiveness grade Good. A new housing development opposite the school means the school is benefitted from the addition of four new classrooms and a new library, opening in September 2020. This is the perfect opportunity to join a team that is soon to begin a new chapter in the history of the school.
Sturry CE Primary School
Having been the sponsor school of The Stour Academy Trust since its formation in 2012, Sturry CE Primary School remains at the forefront of providing outstanding teaching and learning. An Outstanding two-form entry school, Sturry is oversubscribed in early years for 2019 and remains a popular primary school in the Canterbury area.
Adisham CE Primary School
Adisham was rated as Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in September 2017, with inspectors praising the school’s “clear and ambitious leadership” and “polite and respectful” pupils.
An Outstanding half-form entry school, Adisham is oversubscribed in early years for 2019 and remains a popular primary school in the Canterbury area. With small year group sizes, Adisham benefits from the Trust’s high-quality training and opportunities for staff whilst maintaining its ‘community and family’ atmosphere.
