What the school offers its staff

Yardley Primary School is a 2-form (expanding to 3-form) entry community school. It is situated on the edge of Chingford in Waltham Forest and has a long-proven record of academic success. We were judged to be outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in October 2023. As a school we aim to provide a safe, stimulating and inspirational environment for children to learn and thrive academically, socially, physically and emotionally. We teach a broad and balanced curriculum which enables our pupils to become literate and numerate with high levels of spoken, investigative and problem solving skills, together with a balanced view of the World.

This is underpinned by the promotion of our core values of honesty, responsibility, trust, respect, enjoyment and a positive attitude to competition and good manners. We are offering the chance to work with a supportive team with a strong ethos of collective responsibility. The school is set in large spacious grounds and our pupils are hard-working and excellently behaved.

This position is for a class teacher to join us in September 2024 in either a KS1 or lower KS2 depending on experience and suitability. We would welcome applications from ECTs or more experienced teachers. Please contact the office if you would like to arrange a visit to the school.
