South Pennine Academies are extremely excited to advertise this rare opportunity for a fantastic individual to work across primary and secondary schools in our Trust. This person will strategically lead, quality assure and measure the impact of a Trust-wide project that will improve the outcomes for all learners in maths, but in particular those from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

South Pennine Academies has been successful in securing funding from the Department for Education’s second round of Strategic School Improvement Fund bids. The project was borne out of a common need across participating schools in Oldham and Kirklees to improve outcomes in maths for disadvantaged students.

The title of our bid was:

Diminishing the differences for disadvantaged students in mathematics; developing teachers' and teaching assistants' subject knowledge and pedagogy alongside the strengthening of home­school partnerships. 

Progress and attainment in maths in the participating schools at both KS2 and 4 are below national average and there is a gap between disadvantaged and non-­disadvantaged students' performance. The project is aimed at students currently in years 2, 4 and 7 and will ensure a sustainable and consistent approach to the teaching of mathematics and, in turn, a successful transition into KS2, and ultimately KS3. 

The improved teaching and learning as a result of high­-quality professional development, alongside greater parental engagement, will support improved outcomes at both KS2 and 4 for all participating students.

If you think this could be an ideal role for you we look forward to receiving your application.
