An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and inspirational Lead Practitioner of Mathematics and Numeracy to join Hanson School from January 2020.
Your new school
Hanson is a large 11 to 19 mixed true comprehensive school with a good reputation in the City of Bradford. We are very proud to be one of only a few secondary schools in Bradford still maintained by the Local Authority. Since the appointment of our new headteacher, Hanson has been on an accelerated journey and there is a real sense of pride and determination from all our staff and students to ensure our school continues to grow and develop and becomes the school of choice for our community. We have 1670 students on roll including 290 in the sixth form. We are committed to ensuring that talent is nurtured in a safe, orderly and stimulating learning environment. We believe that every child does matter and that by becoming fully involved in their learning, they will get the most out of their time with us and that their learning experiences will be both enjoyable and successful. We are immensely proud of the achievements of all our students and enjoy celebrating them as a school community.
We have state of the art Sports facilities, practical Science and Technology rooms, modern Media and Creative Arts suites and a variety of learning bases. These rooms are served by an innovative ICT solution, with over 1,500 pieces of computer equipment. We want our students to grow into confident, caring and well-educated young adults. We believe that partnerships between parents/carers and the local community are vital for success.
Your new role
You will play a key part in raising standards by modelling excellent teaching and supporting the professional development of colleagues in maths and numeracy. The aim will be to improve the learning experience and achievement of students, whatever their ability and background.
This post is key to the department’s progress onto the next phase of our development. You will support the Director of Mathematics and Numeracy in the leadership and management of the department and the continual improvement and development of the teaching and learning of mathematics, as we endeavour to improve on our already strong 2019 Progress 8 of -0.04, in mathematics. The school will also support the successful Lead Practitioner candidate to gain the SSAT Lead Practitioner accreditation.
We look forward to hearing from candidates who share our vision and are prepared to put in the effort to attain our goals. We welcome visitors and feel that you will get a true flavour of our school when you see us in action, these can be organised through our recruitment partner Hays.
