Associate Assistant Headteacher: L8 to L13 (£56,082 - £63,430) or Curriculum Leader for Maths: TLR1.2 (UPS + £11,411)

What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors of this very successful Catholic High School wish to appoint a dynamic and inspirational leader for Maths to join our strong and dedicated Maths Department as either Curriculum Leader or Associate Assistant Headteacher.

This role will offer the successful candidate exciting challenges that will be both rewarding and fulfilling and will support you to achieve your own personal career goals and aspirations.

Cardinal Allen is a great place to work and an excellent community to belong to. We receive tremendous support from our parent body and our committed group of Governors. Our pupils actively engage in all aspects of school life, and there is a culture of mutual support and openness.

Governors hope to appoint someone who will:

Love and care for our children as much as they would their own;

Be, in every sense a great Maths teacher;

Be enthusiastic, resourceful and keen to ensure that the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, personal development and well-being are achieved;

Have high expectations of both themselves and those they work and lead;

Be able to lead and inspire colleagues to continuously improve;

Always be willing to go the extra mile for our children.

What the school offers its staff

There are eight staff led by a Curriculum Leader and supported by a Lead Teacher, with two members of the team also being Assistant Headteachers. The department has a mix of innovative and traditional teaching, with monitoring demonstrating high standards of teaching and learning. There is a strong sense of team spirit and mutual support, as well as a passion for the subject and a determination to deliver a curriculum that will improve outcomes and allow each pupil to reach his or her potential. Colleagues are very receptive to new ideas, are open to change, and the team is currently developing a mastery curriculum to develop a deep understanding and fluency of mathematics so that pupils can “be all they can be”. Our new colleague will receive all the support and encouragement necessary to make a difference to our pupils and develop professionally for the next stage of his/her career.

Departmental classrooms are grouped together in the Allen Building and the department has an office and ample storage space. Each classroom is equipped with a desktop computer, interactive LED learning panel and visualiser.

Further details about the role

First and foremost, Governors wish to appoint a dynamic and inspirational teacher of Maths; an individual with a sense of vision, and the enthusiasm, energy, and ability to develop a spirit of teamwork across the department and, possibly, the wider school community. We are looking for an exceptional candidate who will be excited to take a leading role and make a significant contribution to our journey in providing the very best for the children who have been entrusted to us. Governors want to appoint someone who is a ‘grafter’, a colleague who will give their absolute all for our children and staff, because they deserve nothing less.

Our children deserve the best, and so, in acknowledging the national recruitment crisis, Governors would be delighted to offer an Associate Assistant Headteacher role to an exceptional candidate with appropriate experience. If you feel that your application falls into this category, Governors will be happy to discuss this at interview, along with any additional responsibility this may include – better still, simply call / visit school to discuss the possibility with Headteacher. Whilst the advertised range for this role is L8 to L13, an appointment will almost certainly be made at the upper end of this range.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.

Offers of employment may be subject to the following checks (where relevant):
childcare disqualification
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
online and social media
prohibition from teaching
right to work
satisfactory references
suitability to work with children

You must tell us about any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.
