What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors and Principal are seeking an exceptional maths teacher with the energy and vision to teach maths at Chichester Free School. This is an opportunity for a permanent full-time position, for a September 2023 start.

We are looking for strong academic credentials but also experience of working in a school committed to our values and ideals, where the co-curricular offer is as vital as the rigour of the taught curriculum. The role will be an outstanding educator with the ability and drive to offer the highest quality of teaching and learning. As an all through school there may be opportunities to teach across all phases, for the right candidate, but this is primarily a Secondary post.

CFS follows national pay scales; this role would be equally suitable for a newly qualified or more experienced teacher. The Upper Pay Scale would be considered for the right candidate and on the agreement of a whole school responsibility in addition to the role outlined below.

Our highly qualified and successful Maths department consists of a seven strong team with six dedicated classrooms and strong leadership from both a Head of Department and 2i/c.

All five of our classrooms are set up for 360 degree learning, a practice that helps to boost engagement and AfL opportunities. In addition to this we are currently on the path towards becoming a paperless department, with use of Chromebooks, iPads and electronic exercise books. Every teacher receives a laptop to support their planning and teaching.

The person appointed to this post will be expected to teach maths across all abilities from at least Years 7 to 11. They will also be expected to take a proactive role in the extra curricular life of the school.

What the school offers its staff

CFS is a non-profit making, state-funded school, established in response to real demand within the local area for a greater variety of schools. We have been open since 2013, and are now fully established in our state of the art facilities on the Carmelite Convent Site on the Hunston Road in the south of Chichester. We are full in all year groups from Years R to 11, with waiting lists in most phases of the School. Our PAN is 60 in primary, and 120 in Secondary. Although most year groups are over subscribed.

Since 2013, CFS has achieved two ‘Good’ Ofsted Inspections. As a school we are now striving to be outstanding and to achieve above average outcomes in all phases. Our values of ‘nurture, challenge and inspire’ influence everything we do as a school, and permeate all areas of school life.

CFS is open to pupils of all abilities. We do not have a catchment area, thus ensuring the School is fair and inclusive. We take part in the West Sussex County Council (WSCC) admissions process. As a Free School we benefit from the same freedoms and flexibilities as academies, and are subject to the same Ofsted inspections and rigorous standards as all state schools.For more information on our ethos and values, prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to look at our website: www.chichesterfreeschool.org.uk.

Commitment to safeguarding

CFS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. In accordance with our Child Protection Policy we are unable to process applications without a fully completed application form. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. All convictions, cautions and bind-overs, including those regarded as ‘spent’ must be declared when applying. The applicant may post such a declaration in an envelope marked ‘Private & confidential for the Principal’. The successful applicant must obtain List 99 clearance and DBS clearance at enhanced level.

CFS is now entering its second decade and is fully established in our state-of-the-art facilities on the Carmelite Convent Site on the Hunston Road in the south of Chichester. Our PAN is 60 in Primary, and 120 in Secondary; in almost all year groups we are oversubscribed with waiting lists. Due to demand, we have a bulge intake of Year 7 who started in September 2023, with 150 pupils currently on roll.

The School joined Sussex Learning Trust last September – a move that we personally initiated through the desire to collaborate with a like-minded family of schools. The Trust is currently small and based in Haywards Heath; CFS are well placed to launch a new Chichester Hub of the Trust, which is really exciting.

As a Free School, we are the same as any other academy; we are both held and hold ourselves to the same exacting and rigorous standards as all state-funded schools. We follow the national curriculum, and are proud of our ambitious, inclusive and varied curriculum offer. Our pupils engage with SATs and GCSE assessments. Since 2013, CFS has achieved two ‘Good’ Ofsted Inspections. As a school we are now striving for excellence in all areas, and to achieve above average outcomes in both phases.

CFS is open to pupils of all abilities. We do not have a catchment area, thus ensuring the School is fair and inclusive. We take part in the West Sussex County Council (WSCC) admissions process. As a school we benefit from longer holidays, specifically at October half term, Christmas and during the summer.
