Start date: 01/09/2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS
Contract term: Permanent

Join and help shape the growing mathematics team at Bobby Moore Academy.  We believe we already have one of the strongest departments in the country, within a school which has a relentless focus on becoming the best.

Our vision is that every student is a successful mathematician.  All students will leave the Bobby Moore Academy numerate and able to apply their skills in mathematics beyond school.  Students will have an appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics to complement their understanding and skills.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, highly skilled teacher to play a significant role in shaping our growing team.  We believe that all students can succeed in mathematics, and that the best way to ensure this happens is through world-class teaching which supports students in developing both conceptual understanding and fluency.  As a school we have high expectations of students both in terms of academic achievement and conduct and we have developed rigorous systems to ensure that students meet these expectations.

As a department and as a school we place great emphasis on supporting teachers in developing their practice through mentoring, departmental co-planning and developing awareness of research and best practice.  This has supported us in developing a mastery-based curriculum which also draws on research on memory and retention from cognitive science. 

We have a fully-staffed and highly qualified team, with great subject expertise.  We are committed to staff development, with both co-planning and dedicated line management timetabled weekly.  As the team and the school grows, there will be plentiful opportunities for additional responsibility as well as to develop your own practice.

We place a high value on teacher development and well-being.  In addition to making staff development a cornerstone of our practice, we have a sensible and realistic approach to workload, particularly written feedback and data collection.  We understand the importance of providing students with effective feedback, but we also recognise that there are many ways to do this; consequently, we give departments and staff freedom as to how they provide students with regular and effective feedback.

This is an exciting time to join us and help shape what we want to be the best Mathematics department in the country!
