The list of warning signs is long:

1. Fairly obviously bad English
2. The address repeats "Ealing" and the postcode - UK addresses do not work like this!
3. The email address is a free account, rather than matching the domain happychild.co.uk
4. On the genuine school's website, www.happychild.co.uk, there is no mention of the vacancies being advertised
5. The sentence containing "...and also located at" on the first line of the advert is suspiciously similar to a sentence in the scam posted about here.
