They will need both sensitivity and robustness in order to ensure that children’s wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything the school stands for.
They will need to be a confident, professional & approachable communicator, as they will be liaising with external and internal stakeholders, including staff, students, parents and the wider community.
The successful applicants should have good time management skills, be able to meet deadlines and have a flexible approach to work as priorities could change at short notice. A good level of all Microsoft Office Suite applications and excellent numeracy, literacy and ICT skills are essential. At Eastlea it is our aim to get the best out of every student, because of this we put teaching and learning at the centre of all aspects of our work. Our vision is based upon clear and concise values: Aspire, Respect, Integrity, Curiosity and Enjoyment. Our students are our greatest asset. They are motivated, articulate young people who deserve the best that we can offer them.
We are keen to appoint dedicated colleagues who are eager to support our students to achieve in all aspects of their life and who want to be key contributors to our school's success. Eastlea has recently come under new leadership and this is an exciting time in the school’s development. It is now part of a local Trust (NCST) with three other local secondaries. NCST has a strong reputation for working with local Newham schools for the benefit of the whole community. The new Executive Headteacher and the Head of School are highly experienced leaders in Newham and are committed to the highest standards of education for our local community. Any member of staff who joins the Eastlea at this time will benefit from the sharing of expertise and professional development opportunities that exist across the MAT.
