What the school offers its staff

  • Thamesmead students and staff are friendly and fun to work with. They like coming into school, behave well in class and achieve good results. In 2022 81% of our Year 11 students achieved grade 4 or above in both English and Maths. They have achieved positive Progress 8 scores each year and our score places us in the top 17% of schools in England.
  • Thamesmead School is a supportive community. Respect is one of our seven Thamesmead values and our staff are kind, caring and respectful to each other. We work hard with our students to ensure they understand the importance of showing respect to all members of our community, and naturally this includes the classroom.
  • Staff wellbeing is of upmost importance at Thamesmead School. Strategic decisions are made to support staff in obtaining a good work life balance: consideration has been given to timings regarding marking load, assessment logging and meeting schedules to ensure staff are not overloaded. There is a wellbeing day in December to help break up the long autumn term, every effort is made to accommodate absence for special occasions such as graduation or nativity plays. Finally, with the school day ending at 2.35, there is time in the afternoon for staff to complete lesson preparation or take part in student or staff based extracurricular activities. Thamesmead celebrates the successes of staff on a weekly basis via the ‘Start of the Week’ award; gives mindfulness advice weekly via email and provides frequent break and lunch time treats for staff!

Commitment to safeguarding

Thamesmead School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Employment is subject to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
