Primary Teacher, Hackney, September start

Are you are a teacher seeking a new opportunity in a lovely school for September? Athona Education is working with a lovely primary school in Hackney, East London, which is searching for a teacher to join the team for the start of the new academic year. The late need for a teacher is because a teacher has had to leave London for family reasons.

They are particularly keen to take on a newly qualified teacher (NQT) as they have the capacity to help with induction year, but experienced teachers will, of course, be considered!

  • Lovely, one form entry C of E primary school
  • Established Headteacher and senior leadership team
  • Friendly, creative atmosphere

About the school:

This is a really lovely one form entry school, located in the heart of Hackney and well-served by trains and buses.

Well resourced throughout and with a lovely Headteacher and senior leadership team, dedicated to making the school the best possible. There is a creative, friendly feel around the school, with a busy atmosphere throughout. The school has a nice playground and a nature area. They were rated as “good” during the most recent inspection.

The role:

At the moment, there is some flexibility in regards to the actual year group, but it is most likely to be year 1 – year 3. One form entry, you will have the autonomy to plan your own lessons and activities but will be able to lean on senior staff members for advice and guidance, if needed. If you are a newly qualified teacher (NQT) seeking your first teaching role, you will be very well supported as the school has a good history of supporting NQTs through induction year.


To be considered for this role, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a qualified teacher, with QTS
  • Have a passion and enthusiasm for teaching and helping children to achieve their full potential
  • Have a genuine team focus, but able to work independently when needed
  • Have an enthusiastic, engaging teaching style

If you meet the criteria given above, please get in touch as soon as possible, as the school is wishing to conduct interviews after half term.

Not right for you but you know a teacher perfect for the job? If you refer a qualified teacher to us, who goes on to work for Athona, we will pay you a £250 referral fee as a thank-you. This is just one of the many roles that we are currently helping schools with. Please get in touch to discuss other opportunities which may be of interest to you.
