We are seeking to appoint a maths specialist as subject leader with the ability to lead on teaching, learning and curriculum design, and able to drive up standards within our department. This post will provide an ideal opportunity to play a prominent role within middle leadership and make a significant contribution to the whole school. The successful candidate will be supported by a team of committed and talented mathematics teachers working to produce the best possible outcomes for our students. There will also be support from the wider maths team within the Trust at Rushey Mead Academy and Castle Mead Academy.
Our culture is based on shared values and collaboration with committed professional and well-qualified colleagues, strong support from senior leaders and a superb working environment. We aim to achieve an ethos where maths is valued by students and families, students are inspired to go on to study maths at A Level and the professional learning of teachers and development of their subject knowledge is a priority.
The school is one where staff well being is a priority hence:
- there is an emphasis on feedback rather than marking
- there is collaborative planning and shared resources
- behaviour systems and detentions are centralised
- professional learning is built into the school day with teams working across Trust schools
The academy is well placed to offer a comprehensive support package to NQTs from all routes into teaching, including PGCE, SCITT and School Direct. Both new and established teachers will be supported and encouraged to develop their practice by engaging in opportunities to collaborate and share ideas with colleagues within our Professional Learning programme.
Please note we will interview candidates on receipt of application forms, so this advert may be withdrawn before the closing date.
