Are you ready to take the next step in your pathway to subject leadership and beyond?
Do you have a proven track record of successful outcomes?
Would you like to be a key figure in making sure that all our young people achieve academic success in Maths?
Maths is undoubtedly a strength of Kennet School, with our department consistently recognised as a beacon of excellence both locally and nationally. If you’re ambitious to progress professionally, this could be a perfect stepping stone towards a Head of Department position in the future.
So, what are we looking for? Someone who is passionate about delivering an innovative and interesting Maths curriculum, who is confident with using data, but more importantly how to use this to generate information and have an impact on the learning of our pupils. As a Raising Standards Leader you will be responsible for maintaining the highest of standards and role modelling excellence whilst supporting other Maths teachers to accelerate the closing of gaps when identified, raising aspiration and attainment for our young people. We are rightly proud of the success of our Maths department but recognise the value of collaboration with new colleagues and welcome fresh ideas to further our success
We’d like you to be able to offer Maths at KS5, and ideally Further Maths too, but we’re happy to consider teachers who only have 11-16 experience and a desire to extend their own practice.
You’re likely to be an experienced colleague and we want to offer you every opportunity to hone your own teaching practice and develop your career. We run an in-house leadership programme (Leaders for the Future) focusing on high level discussion, reading and research. All staff are encouraged to engage with professional development opportunities including both external courses and internal programmes such as our working groups and TeachMeet.
Our PPA time is deliberately generous, aiming to give our teachers a chance to maintain a healthy work-life balance and build strong departments. We also allocate significant funding every year to professional development, well above national average, and offer the chance to contribute to working groups on teaching & learning and literacy.
In short, we are committed to investing in every member of staff - we see this as an investment for our both our staff, and the young people they serve.
So, why not invest an hour to come and see Kennet School for yourself? We love welcoming visitors to our school and are confident our current staff and fabulous young people will convince you to join us.
