What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a wonderful opportunity for an enthusiastic and driven Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages to join our thriving and successful school, on a one-year fixed term contract, to assist us in achieving even greater success.

We seek to appoint a highly driven, full-time teacher of Modern Foreign Languages in a department where Spanish and French are taught. We are keen to recruit an outstanding teacher of Modern Foreign Languages to teach languages to all ages and abilities up to A Level.

What the school offers its staff

The school has been through change in recent years including joining the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) Multi Academy Trust alongside several of our feeder primary schools and Gordano, Backwell and Churchill secondary schools. Through this we are developing work of a mutually beneficial nature. We are also active members of the North Somerset Teaching Alliance (NSTA) Teaching School which affords many opportunities for our staff.

The school has a distinctive character and ethos which is unashamedly child-centred and emotionally intelligent in the way relationships are managed between staff, parents, students, and governors. The school has a House system at the heart of its culture with vertical tutoring as a key facilitator. There are four houses - Bilbie, Hauteville, Moreton and Rodney.

Please visit the school website (www.chewvalleyschool.co.uk) for further information about the school including a visual prospectus which will, I hope, give applicants a better understanding of the range of opportunities here for staff and students which makes school life so successful and enjoyable.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Lighthouse Schools Partnership - Chew Valley School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all in its community to share this commitment. Suitability to work with children and young people will form part of the selection process. As part of the shortlisting process an online search will be carried out. All appointments will be subject to vetting, including an enhanced DBS check.

We are also committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace and welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, particularly those from underrepresented groups.
