Clacton Coastal Academy is a special place to work. We are committed to supporting our students and developing them into well rounded individuals. This is a time of exciting change for the school with new leadership and more opportunities than ever to develop your career with us.
As a Lead Practitioner of Maths, you will be responsible for driving forward teaching and learning across the whole academy as well as being an excellent teacher in your own classroom. You will work with teachers across a range of subjects to improve their practice. The successful candidate will help shape and embed the ethos of the school and make the academy something that the community can be proud of.
The curriculum is centred around core concepts which are sequenced in order to support students in every subject. Core concepts form the bones of the subject. These pieces of knowledge or skills unlock further learning. Core concepts are sequenced in such a way that students are supported to secure each essential concept before moving onto the next. These concepts are focused around a knowledge rich curriculum where students learn topics to a high level of depth to help them to tackle mastery of each subject discipline.
We prioritise the development of reading, writing and communication to support students to access new challenges in the curriculum as this is an essential element for success in our local context. Students have dedicated reading lessons, to enhance their reading skills and build a culture of reading. Students read for twenty minutes a day every day. Subject leaders work hard to build vocabulary and increase the number of opportunities for students to read in lessons, with at least one reading focused lesson per half term.
We recognise our young people as individuals, offering support and challenges to empower them to achieve their aspirations with a high standard of lesson content. Where students need further support they are provided with opportunities within our Remarkable Futures programme (which provides intensive support to students at risk of disengaging with education) or our Transition Curriculum (which provides an enhanced curriculum to accelerate the progress of students who join CCA with significant gaps in their learning).
We believe enrichment is a wonderful way to offer more "out of classroom" experience for our students across the year
CA Enrichment Activitiesgroups. We have devised a broad range of exciting and rewarding activities that will open doors to our students which will promote building and nurturing their personal development in a variety of areas including; team working, self reliance, confidence building and problem solving. The activities are designed to add an additional layer of learning to each CCA students offer in a fun and engaging way, which they decide what to participate in.

Each year group across the Academy will have the opportunity to engage in these wonderful activities and year 11 will be intervention based to support our learners achieve the best results in their outcomes.
