We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and inspirational teacher with experience of teaching mathematics / numeracy. At present we are offering a full-time, temporary post for 1 year from September 1st, 2021. The ability to teach Digital Competency is also highly desirable but not essential. We are willing to provide support and professional learning to a candidate who wishes to develop their skills of teaching Digital Competency. This will be linked to our development work around the planned Curriculum for 2022.
We recognise that in the last year the COVID pandemic will have made an impact on our learners in different ways and we need to carefully consider how we can best support all children so they can achieve outcomes they deserve in the future. We will therefore consider applications from primary or secondary trained teachers that may focus on one of the following areas:
1. A successful applicant who can focus on teaching Year 7 and 8 children, providing the right levels of support for them to positively respond to their experiences over the last 12 months.
In the above context we will also consider applications from staff already working in a school as part of a ‘secondment’ opportunity. We believe such a role can be of benefit to all concerned in the timescale offered.
2. A successful applicant who can teach across different year groups, including to GCSE level.
High quality learning is fundamental to our success and you will benefit from the investment we make in all our staff to develop innovative teaching which gives each student the best possible learning experiences. If appointed you will join a Mathematics Faculty which comprises a team of very talented and committed practitioners where you will be able to work in a very positive, well supported environment.
Prospective candidates are welcome to visit the school and meet with Deputy Head, Laura Dober and Head of Faculty, Mr Jon Astley should they wish. Please contact us at School to confirm in advance if you would like to visit.
You can find more information about the role and our school in the attached application pack.
The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 24th May. Completed applications should be forwarded to the school via post or email for the attention of Ellen Parry.
The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS certificate.
Pontypridd High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
