The Maths department at Swavesey Village College prides itself on offering an incredible learning experience for students and collaborative, exciting working environment for staff. 

Our teaching ethos is built upon principles of Mastery and group-work, in a mixed-ability environment. We believe all students can make excellent progress and as such we work to never place a ceiling on achievement.

We’ve created lesson-by-lesson teaching resources, as well as assessments and homework, for all year groups. No teacher is required to create lessons from scratch so that time can be spent personalising lessons for the benefit of specific individuals in each class.

· A believer in the potential of young people, with a mindset that all children can experience success,

· A capable mathematician with a creative pedagogical approach to maths education.

In return, we can offer you: 

· Induction programme for new staff

· Calendared new staff meetings for CPD

· Leadership Coaching

· Comfortable staff area with free tea, coffee & squash

· Child care voucher scheme through payroll (tax free)
