“Imagine a haven, where children of all abilities and backgrounds are safe and treat each other with mutual respect. Where they are given the skills they need to explore, investigate and learn exciting new things for themselves. Where the thrill of achievement means they want to come back and experience it again and again. A place where children care about the place they live and how they can help to make it even better.

This is what we strive to achieve for our pupils at Ealdham. We hope you will join us in realising this vision.”

Ealdham Primary School is a growing two-form primary school with a nursery, located on the Page Estate in Eltham. Today, we serve a rapidly increasing community of currently 448 pupils. Our staff and governors are dedicated to continuous school improvement and have high expectations for all students. This is an exciting time to join us as we look forward to a potential rebuild or refurbishment in the near future.

For whichever role you apply, you will be an intrinsic part of our team, playing an instrumental role in shaping the future of Ealdham and most crucially, that of our children. You will have the opportunity to contribute to our inclusive culture and bring your passions and aspirations to our school.
