Newham is a vibrant inner city borough just 25 minutes from the
centre of London. Nearly half the population come from dozens of
ethnic minority communities, and more than 114 languages are spoken
in the area. It is this diversity which makes living and teaching
here such a great experience.
Education, and teachers, are crucial to the success
of its regeneration. We recognise that this belief demands a serious
commitment to teachers and we demonstrate it by providing the maximum
help for the professional development of our staff.
We also believe that teachers' effectiveness, work
and achievements must be recognised. The best is often shared and
promoted as best practice throughout the borough.
As a teacher in Newham you will find that not only
are you needed but that you are valued within the school community
and in the borough.
You will have an opportunity to make a real difference
and have every opportunity to develop your own professional skills
Ofsted have said: "the LEA has a clear vision to
