About the role

We are looking for an experienced, outstanding teacher to work as a lead practitioner for mathematics with academies across  south and London regions of the Trust. The overall purpose of the role is to provide support to our leaders and teachers to ensure all our academies achieve the same successes. As a key part of the school improvement team, you will use your subject knowledge, passion, and expertise to drive forward the quality of the curriculum and teaching and learning.

The role involves both a strategic overview of subject development across the region alongside day-to-day involvement with mathematics faculties. This will include activities such as coaching, planning, leadership development, modelling and delivering CPD in strong practice, data analysis, curriculum development, development of trainee teachers and ECTs, and support with student intervention. For more information on the job specification, see the attached information pack.

You will need to be based near Essex or further afield with a willingness to travel across the assigned region. You will not be travelling around the whole area every week – we look at what support is needed where and arrange your time appropriately. It is likely that the successful applicant will need to spend, on average, two days a week in Essex. To discuss the logistics of the role, and how existing regional lead practitioners manage their week and time between academies, or if you have any other questions, please email the senior lead practitioner for mathematics,  Jemma Sherwood at jemma.sherwood@ormistonacademies.co.uk 

To apply, please submit your completed application form, the accompanying task and supporting statement by above published closing date.
