We are a successful, popular, outstanding school with a focus on positive learning behaviour and high expectations for all children. We have two school sites (Webbs and Meteor), a fantastic staff team and a supportive parent/carer community. We are in a vibrant area of south London with excellent transport links. Our proximity to Clapham Junction gives us access to central London and across the south of England.

Belleville Primary School is part of Quality First Education (Q1E), a successful Multi-Academy Trust with four primary schools on five sites across south London. This is an exciting time for us and we want the best people to join us as we grow further.

At Q1E, we believe that “the quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers” (McKinsey 2007). The recruitment, retention and development of high quality teachers is our highest priority.

Staff wellbeing is very important to us. We provide clear structures, excellent resources and outstanding professional development for our staff. All teachers new to the Trust receive pre-induction training before starting in post. We are an outward facing trust and believe in learning from the best schools and systems - you will have lots of opportunity to watch outstanding practice and get involved in wider projects across our dynamic Trust as well as be supported to progress in your teaching career. There are opportunities for new teachers to take on leadership responsibilities for the right candidate.

We offer a high quality, well-resourced and carefully structured curriculum to support teacher wellbeing. High quality specialist teachers are employed to teach PE, art, computing, music and French. We strive to meet the needs of all our children – doing ‘Whatever It Takes’ to help children fulfil their potential.
