More Information


Eastlea Community School is seeking a well-qualified and committed SENCO.  The school has a Resource Provision for students with complex needs who follow a bespoke curriculum alongside students who require support and intervention as part of the mainstream curriculum.   We are looking for a creative and dynamic leader who is ready for a new challenge.  Start date will be September 2021.

At Eastlea it is our aim to get the best out of every student, because of this we put teaching and learning at the centre of all aspects of our work. Our vision is based upon clear and concise values: Aspire, Respect, Integrity, Curiosity and Enjoyment. Our students are our greatest asset.  They are motivated, articulate young people who deserve the best that we can offer them.  

We are keen to appoint dedicated colleagues who are eager to support our students to achieve in all aspects of their life and who want to be key contributors to our school's success.  Eastlea has recently become part of a local Trust (NCST) with three other local secondaries.  NCST has a strong reputation for working with local Newham schools for the benefit of the whole community.  The new Executive Headteacher and the Headteacher are highly experienced leaders in Newham and are committed to the highest standards of education for our local community.  Any member of staff who joins Eastlea at this time will benefit from the sharing of expertise and professional development opportunities that exist across the MAT.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need a full DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, which can be applied for once a job offer is made.

For further details, please call the school on 020 7540 0400 or e-mail 

Applications must be received by 12 noon on Monday 19th April.

Applications will be considered as they are received, so early applications are encouraged, and interviews will take place on a rolling basis.
