Second in charge of Maths job summary

Are you a dedicated member of staff looking to make a difference to young people’s lives?

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Second in charge of Maths to join and support the leadership of our amazing Maths department at Northampton Academy. As Second in Charge, you will work alongside the Head of Department as well as Coordinators of Key Stage 5, 4 and 3 to help support and ensure outstanding progress for all our students in the school. The excellent teaching and learning from our Maths team is often commented on by parents and visitors.

You will have a close eye to detail and be able to manage a large team, whilst retaining the highest possible standards. You will be incredibly tenacious with a high level of emotional intelligence. You will be an exemplary teacher of Maths and be fully committed to providing an excellent learning experience for students at the academy. You will play a major role in improving teaching and learning across the Maths department. The successful candidate will be highly ambitious and will be looking to become a Head of Maths in the next 2 – 4 years.

The leadership of the academy is completely determined to create an environment in which teachers can get on with their core role: delivering excellent lessons. To this end, the student behaviour system is clear, simple and easy to administer in lessons. If action is needed beyond these simple steps, the pastoral and senior teams take all the burden away from the teachers, conducting detentions, following up and dealing with parents on your behalf. Teachers at the academy speak of this as one of the major benefits of working here. In addition to this, teachers are trusted to be professionals through:

• No unannounced observations
• No lesson grading
• 3 extra INSET days per year for joint team planning
• A feedback and recognition policy that lets teachers decide the best feedback mechanism for their own classes, rather than having this prescribed centrally
• Genuine Flexi-working environment where all staff have the option of either a late start or early finish one day per week
• Free access to on-site high-quality gym

Northampton Academy is committed to equal opportunities and to the protection and safety of all students and adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share these commitments.

The post will be subject to an enhanced DBS Disclosure.
