Carshalton High School for Girls is a good place to work and we believe we have a great deal to offer staff who join our team.
Our vision clearly states that we are a community where ‘staff and students learn and thrive together’ and we are totally committed to ensuring staff are given the opportunities and encouragement to develop both personally and professionally. There is a culture of distributed leadership and numerous examples across the school where staff have gained promotion. Our success in gaining Investor in People status demonstrates our total commitment to providing the best possible working environment for all our staff.
The school has a warm, friendly, calm atmosphere, something visitors comment on frequently. Behaviour is good and the school often receives very positive feedback from external organisations. There are high expectations of staff, but everyone is extremely well supported. There is a culture of working collaboratively and of working with and helping each other. Supply teachers are happy to return and Student Teachers, NQT’s and new staff praise the support and guidance given by all staff.
Staff wellbeing is a high priority; our commitment demonstrated by having an in-house wellbeing team. A number of staff social events are organised throughout the year from football and netball on a Friday evening to end of term ‘bashes’ at a range of venues. We constantly seek ideas and comments on how we can further improve our workplace and practice and are open to trying new ideas and initiatives that bring benefits to our community.
