Working with our academy: The Hundred of Hoo Primary Academy is currently an oversubscribed one-form entry primary school which is part of the The Hundred of Hoo All-Through Academy on the Hoo Peninsula, Rochester. A purpose-built primary academy in 2016, Hundred of Hoo Primary is an accredited IB World School which follows the principles and methodology of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP).

We believe that children and adults flourish when they learn and work as members of a supportive, cohesive community built on high expectations, rigour, mutual respect and pride in their own and each other’s achievements.

We believe that:

  • All children are entitled to access a world class education.
  • ​​​​​​​Everyone, regardless of background or starting point, can achieve the highest academic standards.
  • Children should be equipped with values, attitudes and attributes that will serve them well to be lifelong learners.
  • All members of staff deserve great challenge and support on their journey to becoming masters of their craft.​​​​​​

​​​​​​​We are a disciplined Academy, where pupils thrive in a culture defined by mutual respect and impeccable behaviour.
We unashamedly focus on academic excellence and focus on every child achieving highly in subjects that will serve them well beyond school and into the next stage of their education and into their careers. All learning experiences offer the opportunity for children to apply their understanding in a global context developing their notion of international mindedness and therefore becoming principled global citizens.

We have an uncompromising culture of no excuses, and we insist on high standards for staff and pupils. We mean this, we follow it and we refer to it every day because we believe in it. Every pupil matters, every pupil can achieve, every lesson counts.

As an academy we value the wellbeing of all of the members of our community and have many procedures in place to ensure that teachers’ work and personal lives are balanced. 

Being part of Leigh Academies Trust: As of
1 September 2022, our Trust comprises 30 geographically organised academies (14 secondaries, 14 primaries and two special) educating 20,000 students, and employing 3,000 talented staff. The Trust is establishing four ‘clusters’ of academies: North Kent; Central Kent; South East London; Medway. In addition, the Trust is responsible for one of the region’s biggest initial teaching training organisations, a large teaching school hub and is an accredited apprenticeship provider.

As part of Leigh Academies Trust, you will have ample opportunity to collaborate with your peers both within the academy and across the whole Trust. This is an important part of our vision as we know through experience that we perform better when we work together. You are supported to undertake regular self-development to continue your professional development and hopefully progress further within the organisation.

Our commitment to safeguarding: Leigh Academies Trust and all of our academies are committed to ensuring the highest levels of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils, and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We adopt a fair, robust and consistent recruitment process across all academies and business units which is inline with Keeping Children Safe in Education guidance. This includes online checks for shortlisted candidates - you can read more about this in our Recruitment Guidance. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, references, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check.

​​​​​​Our commitment to equality and diversity: As a Trust, we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as individuals, we all bring something unique to the role regardless of any protected characteristics which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise. We are committed to providing equality and fairness throughout our recruitment and employment practices and not discriminating on any grounds.
