Teacher of Mathematics

St Wilfrid's Church of England AcademyBlackburn with Darwen

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher of Mathematics to join our high performing Mathematics Learning Area. The successful candidate must be passionate about the subject and a team player at heart. They must be focused, resilient, have excellent communication skills and a thirst to see all of our learners succeed.

As an Academy we seek to embrace new methodologies, whilst maintaining a balance with traditional practice, to bring about examination success. All students at KS3 and KS4 have a 1:1 mobile device; this is an example of our commitment to use modern technology to maximise learning. Recent site developments have enhanced the resources available to staff and students, which includes an immersive classroom space and an iMac suite.

If you were to be successful in your application, you would be joining an Academy which strives for excellence. We benefit from purpose-built accommodation with excellent facilities. All in all, it is a wonderful place to work, learn and worship. Our vision is ‘Lord Direct us to Live Life to the Full’, rooted in John 10:10. Whilst Learning, we are Inspired and develop our Values through Experiences as each member flourishes. We aim to raise aspirations, realise potential and develop well-rounded successful teachers and young people.

We are looking for a high calibre and enthusiastic teacher of Mathematics who wishes to be part of the success story of St Wilfrid’s. You would be joining a forward thinking Academy with an excellent team of staff, who along with fantastic students, inspire each other and all who come to visit. Whatever your current position, we will provide tailored CPD to challenge, grow, equip and prepare you for the next phase of your career.

We have seen the confidence levels of some of our students decrease in this subject due to periods of isolation and the time spent working from home due to the partial school closure. This job has been created to address this. Within this role you will provide a level of intervention working with small groups of students through to teaching timetabled full classes. Some of your directed hours may fall outside of the normal timetable. The finer details are still under review; however, you may end up working from 9.40am - 16.40pm rather than the usual hours of 8.40am - 15.40pm, therefore a degree of flexibility is required.

St Wilfrid’s Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Candidates will be shortlisted against the person specification for the post.
