Eastlea is a fully inclusive, friendly and supportive Community School where employees are valued and developed. You will want to make a real difference to young peoples’ future, be passionate about achievement and standards along with your own professional development and progression.

Behaviour is excellent. Our parents and students have high aspirations and teaching spaces are inviting and well resourced.

The school is within walking distance to West Ham, Plaistow, Canning Town and Star Lane stations and is close to the dynamic London Docklands, which can be seen from the schools’ playing field.

In the 2014 OFSTED inspection, Eastlea Community School was judged as ‘good’ where students learn well because they have very good relationships with teachers. They feel that teachers are always there to help them.

The inclusion of students with a wide variety of learning needs is a strength of the school.

The teaching of students with special needs is largely integrated into mainstream classrooms; however some specialist teaching takes place in a newly refurbished well-resourced inclusion work area. Curriculum areas aim to build on the achievement of students and meet individual needs.

We are looking to appoint an ambitious, energetic and creative practitioner with outstanding potential to join our already high quality Inclusion team, to develop and promote Special Needs teaching and learning across the school. The person appointed will be committed to raising the profile of Inclusion in the school and driving standards upwards. The position would be particularly suitable as a stepping stone for candidates who wish to develop to become a school SENCO.

If you would like the chance to meet our dedicated and supportive team & find out more about our school, please come and visit, we would love to meet you. Alternatively for an informal discussion about this post please contact the school on the above number.

An application form and further details can be obtained from the School Website: www.eastlea.newham.sch.uk  

Completed forms should be returned to the school by 12:00 noon, 24 November 2017
