Job summary

We are looking to appoint a teacher to deliver arithmetic programmes to our secondary school pupils in Year 7-10 who are currently behind age related expectations. This is not simply to address the potential lost learning that the pandemic has caused, but rather a more fundamental shift in how we resource and provide expert teaching to our pupils who need to make quick gains in their reading and arithmetic proficiency.

The appointed teachers will deliver the Corrective Maths (Direct Instruction) programme to small groups of pupils from Year 7 to 10 throughout the week. We hope that through this appointment many pupils will be able to make really quick gains in their reading proficiency and arithmetical fluency and graduate from these programmes swiftly.

We invite applications from both primary and secondary trained teachers who share our ambition to make sure that all pupils can read proficiently to be able to access all aspects of a knowledge-rich curriculum, and to be able to be arithmetical fluent to not only be successful in their mathematics qualification but to attain core arithmetical skills for their lifetime.
