English Martyrs Catholic Academy Council, on behalf of the Bishop Konstant Catholic Academy Trust, is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dedicated  Y6 class teacher and maths subject leader

‘Standards in mathematics have improved, particularly for the most able pupils. A high proportion of pupils reached greater depth in the Year 6 tests. Leaders have put support in place for older pupils to help identify where they have gaps in their learning and work has been successful in addressing them. Over time, pupils receive a range of mathematics activities, including work on number, place value, and shape and measures.’ (OFSTED September 2017)
