What skills and experience we're looking for

We seek to appoint a highly driven, part-time (0.8) or 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 an enviable reputation for high quality language teaching. The current position is that students learn either French or Spanish on entry to the school. Able linguists are identified and, in Year 8, are given the option to study the other language. In Year 10, many students will pursue a language to GCSE. There are a very small number of double linguists.

At A level we have been able to sustain groups of Modern Foreign Language students as a result of the school’s commitment to languages teaching and we currently have good numbers doing Spanish A level in particular. Two students went to Oxford University last year to study languages.

The Languages team is committed to enrichment opportunities. There are annual visits to both France and Spain.

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.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a colleague to join our thriving and successful school to assist us in achieving even greater success. The school has been through change in recent years including joining the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) Multi Academy Trust alongside a number of our feeder schools and Gordano and Backwell and Churchill secondary schools. Through this we are developing work of a mutually beneficial nature. The school has a distinctive charter 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.
