We pride ourselves on nurturing our children to  become successful, confident and responsible members of our school and  wider community. As a member of our strong team, you will be  well-supported and provided with opportunities to develop yourself as a  teacher and professional.  Our pupils have said that they would like  kind, happy and enthusiastic teachers who make learning fun, but also  help them to achieve their very best! 

Working at the Academy:   Dartford Primary Academy is a three form entry primary school in  Dartford, catering for children between the ages of three and eleven. We  have an outstanding Nursery with spaces for 48 children from the age of  three on our St Albans Road site and a special needs provision at our  York Road site for children who have EHC plans with ASD or speech and  language needs. This provision is a satellite of the Trust's outstanding  specialist academy, Milestone, and benefits from their leadership and  expertise.

Dartford Primary Academy is from the recent  collaboration of St Albans Road Infant and Nursery School and York Road  Junior Academy and as such has a newly formed, collaborative and  effective leadership team who are supportive of all staff and committed  to their on-going career development.  Joining together the two schools  has enabled us to offer a smooth transition for our children from the  age of three to eleven and provided staff with enhanced opportunities to  work across Key Stages, share good practice and draw on the  experience/expertise found in a large staff.

Being part of Leigh Academies Trust:  Being  part of a successful multi-academy trust allows the Academy to share  best practice and collaborate with colleagues from a number of other  schools in the local area.  As part of the 'cluster' structure all of  our academies are grouped together in key geographical area to enable  them to be able to support each other and share resources.  It also  offers staff better access to career opportunities as the Trust is  committed to developing and promoting from within wherever possible.  We  also want the Trust to be an organisation where people can enjoy  teaching and become the type of teacher they aspire to be.  For more  information on working for the Trust please visit our careers pages

What are we looking for in you?   To be successful you need to be a qualified teacher who is passionate  and knowledgeable about your subject and possesses the ability to teach  consistently at a good/outstanding level. Whether you are at the start  of your career or an expert teacher we focus on what attributes you will  bring to the academy and most importantly what impact you will have on  our students.

As a Trust we feel it is important to hire for the  right attitude which is why we look for teachers that are enthusiastic,  focused and resilient to the day to day pressures that teaching brings. 

Diversity at our core:   As a Trust we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as  individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of age,  gender, race, beliefs or disabilities which is why we treat all of our  people equally, without compromise.

The Academy is committed to  safeguarding children and successful candidates will be subject to an  Enhanced DBS check.  Our commitment to safeguarding is underpinned by  robust processes and checks which are in place across the Trust.
