The Governors are seeking to appoint a talented, committed and enthusiastic SENDCO. 

We are looking to appoint a SENDCO/Deputy Safeguarding Lead, to join our Intervention and Safeguarding team.

You will be a dedicated and forward-thinking person who can contribute to the growth and development of the inclusion team, and be willing to make a full contribution to the life of the school. 

Christleton High School is an outstanding school just outside Chester and we believe that our school is a great place to work.   Results and facilities are excellent, the students are polite and well motivated and the school is situated in lovely surroundings.  We try to live by the maxim “Happy, Hardworking and Caring” and any teacher should be a role model of these three characteristics.
