What the school offers its staff

Thank you for your interest in the post of Deputy Director of Maths. It’s an exciting time to join us on our journey to raise standards of education in the communities we serve.

We serve over 3000 children from the ages of 2 all the way through to 18. All of our schools are located within a few minutes’ drive of each other, and have worked closely together for many years. This context gives us a unique opportunity to shape a child’s journey from infancy all the way through to university or a high-quality alternative. This is a huge privilege and a responsibility we take very seriously in our seven schools, who share a common commitment to improving outcomes and raising aspirations for all students.

Our mission is to provide a cradle to career education that allows our children to enjoy lives of choice and opportunity. By the age of 18, we want every child to have the option of university or a high-quality alternative. This means that we aim for life changing personal and academic outcomes, with no child left behind.

To achieve this, we know that students, staff and our schools themselves must strive for continual improvement, and to be ‘better, every day’. Our people are our greatest resource and we will only be able to deliver on our promise of ‘success and respect for all’ by attracting and developing the very best.

Our work is underpinned by our core values of Equality, Resilience, Integrity and Respect. In our schools, teachers spend time ensuring that each child is known and cared for. We aim to create environments where our children are happy, inspired and eager to attend each day. We firmly believe in the value of scholarship, and aim for every child, no matter what their background, to be given the ambition, and the practical tools, to succeed academically, giving them the basis from which any career or academic goal is achievable.

I hope this pack gives you a flavour of the Brigshaw Learning Partnership. I very much look forward to meeting you and working with you to ensure that we provide a transformational education for the young people in our care.

Please do get in touch to arrange a visit or to have an informal conversation about the role.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all children regardless of age, gender, religion or beliefs, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or socio-economic background. All adults in our schools have a full and active part to play in protecting our children from harm, and that the child or young person’s welfare is our paramount concern. We ensure that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and is provided with appropriate training to recognise, identify and respond to safeguarding concerns relating to children and young people.
