The Discovery Academy is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Mathematics to join our team of highly motivated professionals and to add essential capacity to support our exciting growth strategy to become one of the largest academies in the region over the next few years. This is a fantastic opportunity for inspiring and aspirational individuals to join a creative, well established and supportive faculty. You will be required to work with Leaders in Mathematics to ensure an effective curriculum transition takes place from Year 6 to Year 7 and to develop and implement age-related expectations in Year 7. The successful candidate will also be required to monitor and track the impact of using age-related expectations as an assessment tool.

At the Discovery Academy our guiding principle is to ‘expect excellence’ in everything that we do, to ensure our students ‘Aspire’. ‘Aspire’ represents the aims, values and behaviours that we strive towards (Ambitious; Skilled; Positive; Independent; Respectful; Equipped) and our curriculum is designed to support students in reaching these. Alongside a curriculum that offers breadth and ambition, strong pastoral support ensures students are kept safe and are well looked after and ensures a sense of family is felt throughout the Academy.

The Academy boasts outstanding facilities, a state-of-the-art learning environment and was judged ‘Good’ following an inspection by Ofsted in January 2019. Our growth programme includes a £2 million additional teaching facility, as well the benefits a large Academy can offer, such as a comprehensive professional development and leadership opportunities.

The Alpha Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its employees and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced check by the Disclosure and Barring Service along with other stringent vetting and induction processes.
