Information about the School

Welcome to Theydon Bois Primary School

The ever-popular Theydon Bois Primary School is where we nurture and educate 315 happy and inquisitive children in a purposeful, well-resourced, and calm atmosphere. The school is at the heart of the bustling village of Theydon Bois, on the edge of the picturesque Epping Forest.

Our children are curious, creative, and courageous. No challenge is too big, no problem too difficult. They know what they are learning, why they are learning it, and how they can improve. Active participants in the learning process, – they are ALWAYS engaged and forward-looking. In a nutshell, they are inspirational young people! Our adults are motivated, caring educators inspired to deliver a Top Class Curriculum, which creates great opportunities for learning. They strive to enthuse our children with a love for learning, and an ability to celebrate success in a safe, happy school.

We are part of The Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust, a Multi-Academy Trust of fifteen Primary and one Special School all based in the Epping Forest District. Along with our SCITT (School-Centred Initial Teacher Training), School Improvement Team, Well-being Service, and Resourced Provisions based in three of our schools, we are a leading educational organisation in Epping Forest.

EFSPT was formed in 2018 from a consortium of schools that had worked together for over 20 years and are committed to collaborative working to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and school communities. The schools maintain their identities but work in a highly collaborative manner supported by a small but very experienced Central Team.

Our Mission is to provide an exceptional education that is inclusive and challenging for all and which provides wider opportunities for the children within the EFSPT to flourish.

EFSPT is committed to Trauma Perceptive Practice; the Essex approach to understanding behaviour and supporting emotional well-being. Being trauma-perceptive means that through our values, policies, and practice, we are able to effectively support the children, families, and communities in our Trust, creating spaces of belonging and safety that enable everyone to flourish, become resilient, and learn.

We are an Equal Opportunities employer and we are committed to safeguarding our schools’ communities. The appointment will therefore be subject to satisfactory references and enhanced DBS checks.

West Essex SCITT is an outstanding provider of Initial Teacher Training. We currently have student finance or self funded postgraduate trainee teacher vacancies available to start in September 2024 across all of our 16 primary schools.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
