This is a really exciting time to join our Maths department and become a formative member of the team. Having just received a rating of Good from Ofsted in November 2023, you will be joining us on our journey to ensuring that Marlwood is an exceptional school that lies at the heart of a close knit community. With around 550 students, we are a smaller than average secondary school and this brings with it many benefits, not least our ability to get to know our children quickly, understand their individual needs and place high quality education at the heart of everything we do. Our values of Resilience, Respect and Responsibility are lived throughout our school community.
The Maths department has an ambitious, well sequenced and knowledge-led curriculum which both supports and challenges students throughout. We have based this largely on the White Rose Maths scheme of learning, adapting and developing these resources to ensure they fit the needs of our students. Diagnostic questions, deliberate practice and worked examples are embedded throughout our schemes of work. We have a bank of central lesson resources which support our staff with planning, foster collaboration and help embed consistency through the department.
We pride ourselves on our CPD support, both at school and Trust level. As a school, we invest in personalised coaching for all staff, with a focus on subject-specific pedagogy and teaching and learning. We also have a central Trust education team who support and deliver high quality training.
CSET is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates are subject to child protection screening appropriate to the post, which will include an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check for the children’s workforce and a Children’s Barred List check.
