Teacher of Maths
We are delighted to offer this fantastic opportunity for an inspirational, motivated and enthusiastic maths teacher to join us from September 2020. The successful candidate will want to make a difference to the lives of students and to help develop independent and resilient young people who can accomplish their ambitions when leaving the academy.
The Maths Faculty is a developing team with friendly, hardworking and supportive staff who motivate each other. The department are developing standardised lessons to ensure consistently and to support the development of good teaching and learning. A five year curriculum is followed with students being made aware of GSCE specification referenced right from Year 7. All assessments are written using past GSCE questions to get students used to this style of question. At KS5 we offer A-Level maths. The post is key to the department’s progress onto the next phase of our development.
We are a welcoming and caring community where our core values of limitless potential, intentional excellence, mutual respect, genuine integrity and amazing grace based on Christian values, run through all we do. It is central to our ethos, day to day curriculum, extra-curricular activities and pastoral structures. Here at Grace Academy we not only focus on the academic excellence of students but also work with students on supporting them to be the best human beings they can be.
We have high expectations for all those involved in the education of children. It is important that all students leaving Grace Academy have the qualifications they need in order to follow the path they have chosen; that students do not limit themselves and that staff and parents support them in raising their expectations and aspirations.
We pride ourselves on our caring ethos with a strong and genuine focus on staff wellbeing, putting development and wellbeing at the heart of our work. We work hard to look after our pool of talented staff who are encouraged to grow, develop and work collaboratively.
The trust schools have a shared vision and purpose: to deliver outstanding educational experiences that lead to inspiring outcomes. Each academy has a strong individual identity and tailors their educational provision to serve their local community. Academies within the trust collaborate to share expertise and maximise opportunities and experiences for our students.
This an exciting time to join Grace Academy! School visits are welcome and strongly encouraged.
