Staff Team

At Chatten School we are incredibly proud of our amazing staff team.  Because we are a new free school we are constantly growing and evolving so please do check back here for updates. 

We choose our staff team based on a mixture of skills, qualifications and attributes and use rigorous recruitment methods to ensure we employ great new team members.  We also ensure that we offer our staff high quality training, supervision and opportunities for development. 

We want you to get to know everyone in our team but there are a lot of us.  For this reason we have split our staff team page into two pages.  One for classroom based and one for non-classroom based.

If you are interested in working for us, please visit our work for us page.
