Development of Staff
We are passionate about our staff making a difference to the education of our pupils. Development opportunities are frequent and where possible we believe in “growing our own” through internal and external development opportunities. Many promotions have been from within the school over the last few years.
We offer both the Teachers pension scheme and the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). Both schemes are contributory with a contribution from both the employee and employer. With these schemes, life assurance is included.
Kent County Council offers a tax-free childcare scheme, which is a tax efficient way to pay for childcare.
The school hold social events throughout the year.
Kent Rewards is a discount scheme across hundreds of shops, restaurants, cinema, entertainment and days out, holidays, utilities, groceries and food. They have both online and in store discounts in most major retailers. Employees with 6 months service are eligible to join.
Kent County Council offers the Cycle2Work scheme. A tax efficient way to purchase a bicycle.

Everyone who teaches with us holds key worker status. This means you might be entitled to housing schemes such as Shared Ownership or Homebuy, to help you buy or rent a home at a reduced rate. You can find out more about these schemes from local authorities and housing associations.
