About East Lane Primary School

East Lane Primary School was opened in April 2017 and in November 2019 was judged ‘Outstanding’ in every category by Ofsted in its first full inspection (Please click here for the full report). It is housed in a new and purpose-built £14 million building with exceptional resources and is located adjacent to Wembley High. This provides our children with an ‘all-through’ experience of outstanding schools. East Lane Primary School is a 3-form entry school with pupils from Reception to Year 6. Our results to date for Early Year, Phonics, KS1 and KS2 have been amongst the highest in Brent and significantly about the national averages and we are looking to continue our success as the school moves forward.

What the school offers its staff

All teachers at East Lane receive a comprehensive, structured programme, delivered by highly-trained mentors and bespoke to the individual’s needs. As part of the WMAT, we also have the Teaching School Hub which spans Brent, Barnet and Enfield and is based at WHTC. Teachers can undertake NPQs with us and have the opportunity to develop their experience with an area they would wish to gain further expertise. If you are keen to develop as an outstanding leader or practitioner, then we would love to hear from you.

The role

What we are looking for:

  • An outstanding teacher, able to model and inspire excellence throughout the school community and work collaboratively with the executive headteacher, senior leadership team, the staff and governing body.
  • A clear, strategic leader who supports and promotes our supportive, yet structured, working environment.
  • Evidence of sustaining and improving academic standards and achievement.
  • An innovative and strategic thinker with the commitment, drive and ability to add value to a committed leadership team.
  • An excellent communicator with outstanding interpersonal skills.
  • An individual who is able to work collaboratively with the strong leadership team we have built at East Lane.
  • A dedicated and committed individual who has high expectations of themselves, the staff and the pupils.
  • As we are a subject specialist school, it would be desirable to have a candidate with a specialism of either maths, science or English.
