What skills and experience we're looking for

The postholder will teach Science across the age and ability range. The person appointed would be responsible to the Head of Science. We have a good balance of specialists on the team and want to maintain an excellent tradition of specialist teaching for the separate sciences.

Science has a very high profile at Chew Valley School. A level teaching is a particularly important part of our teaching and many of our sixth formers go on to study Science at Russell Group Universities. The department makes a significant contribution to STEM education and there are many opportunities provided for linking education in science to practical applications in the world of work and research.

The department is an extremely friendly one with a range of experience and expertise, supported by a dedicated Lab Assistant team. Whether an NQT or an experienced teacher, you will receive a warm welcome and excellent support within the department and from the school as a whole.

What the school offers its staff

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 Gordano, Backwell and Churchill secondary schools. Through this we are developing work of a mutually beneficial nature.

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.

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.
