‘The new Headteacher has a clear and ambitious vision for the school. He is taking effective steps to get the school on track’ Ofsted 2017

George Pindar is a community school on a positive and sustained journey and located on the edge of Scarborough which makes us easily accessible for York, Driffield and most parts of the East Riding.

Our staff are our greatest resource and we are proud to be a host school to Teach First, Ambition School Leadership and Chartered College of Teaching. Staff who have relocated or who have entered teaching through all routes have stayed with us – and for us that is a sign of a school on the up!

Under the strong leadership of our Head of Maths we have seen vast improvements both in terms of teaching and learning, attitudes to learning and we enter September 2018 looking very much to the future.

We are looking to appoint a Maths professional to become our new Numeracy Co-ordinator to work with our team of 5 teachers and our HLTA. You will take a lead on numeracy not just within the department, but across the school. While there has been some work to embed this strategy we will allow you the autonomy and freedom to make a difference on this important whole school initiative.

We offer:

  • A tailored programme of CPD which includes a fully funded place on NPQML
  • Additional time off timetable to work with the Literacy Co-ordinator to share best practice and ideas
  • Access to ‘Everybody Benefits package’ which includes salary sacrifice. Cycle to Work and childcare vouchers
  • Support with relocation (if appropriate)

We are looking for a candidate with:

  • A passion for your subject and the ability to bring Maths from the outside world into the classroom.
  • Vision, drive and flare as you join our supportive and forward thinking staff team
  • The commitment to work with our feeder schools and to maximise the Year 7 catchup premium.
  • A genuine commitment to making a positive contribution to our school.
