A very popular primary school in Greenwich is starting a new initiative to improve teaching staff workload to allow teachers and pupils to achieve great results. The school are restructuring their year 2 and year 6 teaching staff and are looking for dedicated experienced teachers to join the team.

In year 6 and year 2 there will be two class teachers and a third, full-time teacher leading planning, assessment, additional booster and intervention work. This role is for one of the main class teaching positions in year 6. This is an exciting opportunity to work in a school that understands and is addressing the biggest issues facing teachers today.


The school is a very popular choice for parents in Greenwich. Over the past 5 years the school has progressively improved and is now achieving high standards in a welcoming and friendly environment.

You will be working with pupils who are committed to school values and are keen to learn. They demonstrate good behaviour when given a stable and positive classroom.

As a year 6 teacher you will have the opportunities to lead and take part in additional learning activities including school productions and residential trips.

The school are very focused on retention of staff and therefore offer training and development. Once established, the school can offer potential leadership responsibilities.

You will be paid to scale according to experience.

To apply for this exciting opportunity you must be able to demonstrate the following:
  • Qualified Teacher Status and experience teaching in KS2 (ideally in Year 6)
