KAA is a school that is committed to excellence in all areas. This commitment is shared equally by teaching and support staff. We aim for excellent performance in all aspects of our work and are frustrated when we fall below the high standards we have set ourselves. This commitment is a distinctive part of KAA culture and not something you would necessarily experience elsewhere. To achieve it, our staff need to be highly reflective, passionate people who are determined to excel, not just occasionally (for example in an observation) but for a very high proportion of the time. This environment is not for everyone, and it is worth considering if you want to be part of a staff team like this before you apply. Having said that, KAA is not an overly pressured or stressful place to work and staff wellbeing is of course a big part of us achieving the high standards we set ourselves. We often talk about how we are searching for the right balance of high-performance and low-stress, and feel we are getting better at this all the time. Our “outstanding” Ofsted inspection in 2017 noted:
“Staff morale is exceptionally high. Staff enjoy working at the school and benefit from high-quality training.”
The training and development of our staff is our highest priority. Our recent Ofsted inspection report highlighted that: “Teachers new to the profession feel very well supported in settling into the school quickly and developing their practice.” This careful support makes KAA a great place to begin your teaching journey.
We work with a number of different training providers (Teach First, Schools Direct and Now Teach) offering a range of routes into teaching. If you are interested in finding out more about teacher training options, visit www.getintoteaching.gov/ or contact KAA by emailing email@example.com.
