Our friendly and welcoming community school is based in South Tottenham, Inner London. Our children bring with them a wide range of personal experiences and many are new learners of English. Their hunger for learning is evident in all that they do; they are bright, engaging and fun children who are developing a true sense of their own selves and are on the journey to taking responsibility for their futures.

We are looking for someone who can:
  • Model exemplary class teaching and planning to support and coach colleagues
  • Effectively use evidence from monitoring of teaching and learning to hold colleagues to account and to improve provision and outcomes for our children
  • Work collaboratively both in school and across our wider Network Learning Community to share best practise and leading on CPD
  • Bring something special and creative to West Green and our families/bring a creative approach to school leadership
We are committed to employing the very best candidates for our pupils and so encourage applications from teachers who and who can demonstrate a heartfelt commitment to doing what it takes to ensure our children reach their potential.

We welcome and encourage visits to the school, prior to application. Please contact the school office via email ( to arrange a visit, request an application pack or for further information.
