Walnut Tree Walk Primary School

Walnut Tree Walk, Kennington, London SE11 6DS


Walnut Tree Walk Primary School is a unique school with a child-centred approach to learning. We pride ourselves on our family ethos and creative curriculum which gives every child an opportunity to reach their full potential and nurture their individual talents.

We are a very happy and harmonious school with a stable team of experienced staff, meaning that staff turnover is very low. We are a school that values what each and every member of staff brings. When recruiting, we look for individuals who are enthusiastic, highly motivated, and who will inspire our children through the provision of high quality learning experiences.

For successful candidates, we offer

  • willing, enthusiastic children with positive attitudes to learning
  • an inclusive and diverse learning environment
  • opportunities to be creative with the planning and delivery of the curriculum
  • specialist teachers and coaches who teach the children PE, Music, Dance and Modern Foreign Languages.
  • inner London pay
  • a well-established and supportive team of staff
  • access to relevant in-house and external CPD, and opportunities for career progression

We consistently achieve attainment that is in line with or above the national average at the end of KS2 for Reading, Writing and Maths. The broad and balanced creative curriculum complements the high standards of teaching in English and Maths, meaning that children leave with both strong academic skills as well as achieving success in creative subjects. We are very proud of the progress each and every child makes during their time at Walnut Tree Walk. Our high standards of attainment and progress are due to the quality of teaching and learning within the classroom in addition to the wide range of interventions and staff who are there to offer targeted support to children who need it, be it academically or emotionally.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school in every sense of the word. We are made up of a diverse community with a range of strengths and needs. We encourage children to think for themselves, to question things and to develop as individuals. Our mission is for all children to ‘be the best they can be’ and to leave primary school in Year 6 as well-rounded children with a love of learning, ready for the next stage of their lives, and saying, “I know who I am.”
