Based in Walthamstow, Chapel End Junior Academy is a caring and aspirational community. We believe that every adult and child in the school are precious - equally valued no matter what race, sex, creed, religion, social background, physical or intellectual achievement.

We believe our school is special - a happy and safe environment in which our children can grow and develop into confident and successful young people.

The Trust

Founded in 2012, REAch2 Academy Trust is the largest primary-only academy trust in the country. It is a growing charitable organisation supporting primary academies across England.

The Cornerstone of REAch2 is a solid, unshakeable foundation, defined by exceptional teaching experiences and shared Touchstone values of learning, leadership, enjoyment, inclusion, inspiration, responsibility and integrity.

These values are at the very core of the Trust, firmly embedded in all of our academies and embraced by our leaders, teachers, staff, parents and children alike.

Strong family values are a key component of the REAch2 vision. We believe that REAch2 is a family: connected by a common desire to learn from each other, share experiences and be mutually supportive across the entire academy community. Every school and every individual is included in this vision. We actively encourage collaboration – and work as a team to create and deliver the best possible educational experiences for every pupil within the REAch2 Trust.

We can offer:

• An exciting challenge where you can truly make your mark
