Headteacher Message

I began here at Little London in September 2021 and am thoroughly enjoying leading such a wonderful school. There are so many brilliant aspects to our school: the fabulous staff team we have, the facilities, the quality of teaching and learning and of course the children, who are just amazing. Children make very good progress and achieve well at the end of their time with us, they are keen to learn and want to do their best. There is a lovely warm, friendly and caring atmosphere and ethos in our school.

Little London is a school doing well, but with enormous potential to be something incredibly special. I am excited about the opportunity to recruit a deputy headteacher who shares the same values and ambition to work with me on this journey of improvement and development.

As the deputy head you would be non-class based and lead key areas across the whole school. The areas you would lead would include teaching and learning area and pastoral areas. I am looking for someone who is a kind and caring person who values people and works with optimism and enthusiasm. You will need to be passionate about working with children and committed to ensuring their enjoyment and love of school. You will also need to be organised and be able to manage your work well, prioritising and delegating as needed. You will need to be an excellent teacher and have a passion for all things education. You must have a mature and calm approach, be flexible and adaptable.

Little London is a unique and very special place to work. It is fabulous, diverse and dynamic. This is a great opportunity to take that next step in your career in a very positive and supportive school.
