Teacher job summary

The Chalet School is an exciting learning environment for primary aged pupils with autism. Our lovely pupils are in need of SEND Teachers who have passion and drive, who will encourage self-development in every aspect of our pupils’ educational journey, making learning with you – fun.

We have 2 opportunities for September 2024 - one at our main site and one at our new satellite class at Headlands Trading Estate (SN2) called The Nest. If you have a preference as to which site you would like to apply for, please make this clear in your application.

Our Education Provision (EP) is not like any other and you need to see it to feel it. A warm and supportive environment connected to a host of educational settings as part of a wider network of EPs and SEND services; we would recommend a visit to The Chalet School ASAP to see for yourself this inspiring setting.

The Chalet School is proud to be part of Brunel Academies Trust - a growing educational community with no barriers, only potential. We strive to significantly improve the life chances and outcomes for our CYP within our SEND, CofE and mainstream EPs.

What it’s like to work at The Chalet School:

‘I feel working within a school community with so many like-minded people, we support the children to achieve so many life skills to prepare them for their future. Everyday is different, and the learning opportunities the children experience can vary from pretending to be on a boat to having Zoolab coming in, exploring and holding insects.

‘I'm still learning! Each day is still fresh and new with new challenges and experiences. There’s never a dull moment, yes there are challenges, but I've learnt to be adaptable. You have to think on your feet, but we are also able to celebrate numerous successes with the children.’

‘I enjoy working with all the different needs of the children in class, building relationships and spending time sharing their interests. We become a team and with the routines and structure of the session, day and week the children grow in confidence. You put the time in, and you get your rewards a smile, high five or a note from home.’

Interview: 13/06/2024
