What the school offers its staff

Morden Mount is a two-form entry primary school on the borders of Greenwich with great links to Canary Wharf, the picturesque Blackheath village and the rustic Greenwich town centre. We are very proud of our diverse human and geographical school community and this underpins our wider school curriculum. Our teachers form an integral part of our school as they have continually found creative ways to infuse lessons with their life experiences and passion for teaching. Our pupils, despite the daily challenges, are steep in resilience and continually rise up to expectations, mitigating challenges with hard work and relentless dedication to learning.

We are now seeking a KS1 or KS2 teacher to plan, organise, and implement an approved curriculum in a learning environment that encourages pupils to develop their full academic potential. The ideal candidate will be highly organised and be able to tailor educational plans so that our pupils continue to grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.

The teacher will be passionate about the primary curriculum and explore the opportunities inherent within it, to further develop the potential of pupils for a meaningful future. Learning in our school is embedded in relationships; therefore, the teacher will have a desire for strong connections based on mutual respect and trust. Above all, the teacher will be able to cultivate within their classroom environment, learning experiences that are ambitious, meaningful and enjoyable.

Commitment to safeguarding

As a caring organisation with direct responsibility for children, our first concern must be the welfare of every child in our care. There may be occasions when we have to consult with other agencies even before we contact parents, particularly in relation to child protection concerns. Should this be necessary, then we will ensure that we speak to parents about any concerns that we have raised at an appropriate time. The procedures we follow form part of our statutory duty and have been issued by the Greenwich Safeguarding Children Partnership.
