Seven Mills is a friendly, child centred, forward thinking, fully inclusive single-form entry primary school in a vibrant East London community located just five minutes walk from Canary Wharf. Seven Mills truly believes that every child has the ability to achieve their full potential in all areas of the curriculum, and as the new Deputy Headteacher you will continue to support our exciting whole school ethos to foster this.

The new Deputy Headteacher will help lead a happy team of strong teachers who have a shared, child-centred approach to their work, characterised by high expectations. Seven Mills is dedicated to the inclusion of all children and the Deputy will act as SENCo and inclusion leader and safeguarding lead.

Our ideal candidate will be an excellent class practitioner with a range of experiences across the primary phase.

At Seven Mills, we have children, families and a community whom we value and who play an integral part in our day-to-day life. The roles we undertake go way beyond the classroom walls and the new Deputy will be instrumental in moving Seven Mills forward in its next chapter.

We are committed to the professional development of all staff, and this would be an excellent opportunity for someone to develop their leadership skills within a stable and supportive environment. As a small school we are very much ‘all hands to the pump’, and all members of the leadership team understand and contribute to our whole school vision.
