Creating opportunities for all
At Christ Church we put people first. We know that our pupils and staff are the school’s greatest asset and we strive to provide opportunities for every child and adult to flourish and achieve their potential.
Our governors and senior leadership team believe that with the right support, guidance, provision and challenge, all staff – whatever their role or responsibility – are capable of achieving amazing outcomes for the children, families and wider community we serve.
Why work at Christ Church?
Christ Church is a warm, welcoming, friendly school with a track record of identifying and nurturing talent and developing careers.
Whether you are a cleaner, a member of our office staff, a playleader, a teaching assistant or a teacher, we want you to enjoy your work and to be as professional as you can be. Our children deserve the best – nothing less!
For this reason, our staff are expected to proactively develop their practice by making the most of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities on offer, both provided within school and elsewhere. And then, after a course has been attended, we expect staff members to cascade new learning and skills to colleagues.
At Christ Church, staff are committed to working together to continually learn from and learn with colleagues, improving our practice each and every day, never losing sight of the positive outcomes we want for children.
Our commitment to equality of opportunity
It is Christ Church’s policy to employ the best-qualified personnel and to provide equal opportunity for the advancement of employees including promotion and training, and not to discriminate against any person because of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, religion or religious belief, disability or age. All new posts at Christ Church are subject to a probationary period.

As the Equality Act contains definitions of what is meant by “disability" or a “disabled person" and “substantial adverse effect", the following notes should help you to complete the answer relating to disability:
Defining a disabled person – a person has a disability if she/he has a physical and/or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on her/his ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Impairment – this covers physical and mental impairment including learning disabilities and hearing and sight impairments.
Substantial adverse effect – this is something that is more than a minor or trivial effect, and is beyond the normal differences in ability which may exist among people.
Long-term effect – this is one which has lasted or is likely to last for at least 12 months, or which is likely to last for the rest of a person’s life. The loss of mobility due to a broken leg, which a person is likely to recover from in less than 12 months, or a long-term illness from which a person is likely to recover from within 12 months are not included.Normal day-to-day activities – these are activities carried out by people on a regular or daily basis. It does not include activities which are normal only for a particular person, or a small group of people.
