Work with us

Belleville is an ambitious, vibrant and supportive place to work.


Ofsted (March 2022) say:

  • Pupils thrive at Belleville. They are very well prepared for the next stages of their education. Leaders have planned a highly ambitious curriculum. Pupils speak with enthusiasm about the rich curriculum they learn. Pupils behave very well and engage positively with their learning
  • Staff are proud to work at Belleville. They receive extensive professional development and are appreciative of this. They feel their workload is well managed by leaders who welcome their input on how the school operates. Teachers at the very beginning of their career feel especially well supported.

We are a very successful, popular, outstanding school with a focus on positive learning behaviour and high expectations for all children. We have two school sites (Belleville Webbs and Belleville 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 easy access to central London and out 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.

Belleville is a great place to work, with clear structures, excellent resources and outstanding professional development for staff.  Being part of the Q1E Trust provides extensive support and opportunities. 

All teachers receive pre-induction training before starting in post. For Early Career Teachers, this means three weeks of paid training in July once you have finished your teacher training - followed by enrolment on a two year ECT induction programme (University College London) with support from a dedicated mentor. We are an outward facing Trust and we 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. 

Teacher recruitment is managed centrally for our Trust, so you only have to complete your Q1E application form once, indicating which of our schools you are interested in. 

All posts in Q1E schools are subject to an enhanced DBS with barred list check.
