All classrooms contain a modern electronic lectern with an inbuilt networked PC and visualizer, this is connected to an interactive whiteboard with inbuilt audio speakers. The mathematics classrooms are all connected to a lead lesson space that contains a large screen and facilities for breakout intervention groups. The department enjoys a staff workroom connected to this central teaching space. A dedicated photocopier, scanner and printer is also provided in the area.
At Tudor Grange Academy excellent teaching and learning is at the heart of all that we do. Professional development is very important to us and we offer a comprehensive programme of professional learning, to enable you to continuously develop your practice in a school where students fall in love with learning, embrace a growth mindset and are successful.
The mathematics department has celebrated fantastic progress since the opening of the Academy. It is a very hard working, supportive and ambitious department which is completely committed to excellence and aspires to be the leading department within the academy. We are dedicated to offering students a positive and enriching experience in mathematics through a challenging and inspiring curriculum. We also provide further learning opportunities for students after school, such as our Key Stage 3 club called ‘Number Crunchers’ to support lower ability students and STEM club in collaboration with the science department for our more able students.
All schemes of work are developed collaboratively within the department and are excellently resourced and shared in centralised electronic folders. This enables the staff to work collegiately: team planning is a regular feature of the department.
A clear assessment calendar drives a focus on marking and feedback. The department strives to provide diagnostic marking and feedback which has a clear impact and presents opportunities for students to make immediate improvements.
The mathematics department is well supported by the school and this allows for extra mathematics interventions to take place for year 11 students. Students are targeted for morning intervention sessions and also for after school support and this has contributed to our strong GCSE results. The department also benefit greatly from being part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), which among other advantages, reduces teacher workload and provides more robust and reliable assessment data.
We are now seeking to augment this fantastic team with an equally skilful and committed colleague. We welcome applications from those who are just about to embark on their career and are motivated and driven in a supportive and ambitious environment, as well as from more experienced colleagues who feel they have that something extra to offer such as an extensive track record in teaching to A-level.
Informal visits and conversations about the post are most welcome, please contact Grant Davis, Curriculum Leader of mathematics via the main school reception on 01905 454627 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
