Teacher of Mathematics - Full Time
Required for September 2018, a well-qualified and successful classroom practitioner to teach Mathematics. This is a new post to boost our already successful team. This is a great opportunity to join a successful Maths department in a school where results in both attainment and progress terms are very strong; we sit comfortably above national averages in all of the new attainment measures. In 2017 74% of students achieved a GCSE pass in Maths. Maths is a very popular subject in our Sixth Form and our 2017 ALPS score for the subject was ‘Outstanding’.
This is a great time to join our school as we have recently established a multi-academy trust with three of our feeder primary schools (The Minerva Learning Trust) and there will be opportunities to work closely with these schools. The department is currently working with Edgehill University to explore variation and how this can be used to support student learning. We have developed elements of mastery within the curriculum and looking to further develop concrete and visual methods. We are a member of the Pixl Club, work with the Jurassic Coast Alliance and have several staff involved in national initiatives. We are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. We accept applications from all potential candidates including NQT, main scale and UPS colleagues. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Head of Maths Faculty, Mrs Kayleigh Jones firstname.lastname@example.org or 01308 422291. Visits to the school are also warmly accepted.
An application form and details can also be downloaded from either the school website: www.colfox.org or you can apply online at: www.dorsetforyou.com/jobs. Completed application forms should be emailed to the Headteacher’s PA, Amanda Ackerman email@example.com
