Our Vision – Esse Optimus Qui Possum (the best that I can be) recognises the importance of the relationship between school and home in children’s development.

Children lie at the heart of what we do. We are a happy, ambitious and inclusive 2 form entry school in Leytonstone, which reflects the rich diversity of families in our area.  We are a multi-cultural inner city academy.  The school is in an area of high deprivation and our mission is to close the gap between young people from disadvantaged and non- disadvantaged backgrounds.

Mayville Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful candidate will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
