What skills and experience we're looking for

The 4 Day Week Campaign believes it would “dramatically improve the lives of teachers”. We are always looking for new ways to improve everyone’s work/life balance at The Westleigh School and we are excited to have been asked to be part of a trial of the 4-Day teaching week for staff whilst continuing to receive full-time pay, from September 2023.

We seek a candidate who is passionate about the subject and can pass on their enthusiasm to their pupils and will be committed to maximising the progress and achievement of every student. The successful candidate will be an outstanding Teacher of Mathematics with the ability to teach high quality lessons across the age and ability range. This position would also be suitable for an outstanding NQT wishing to begin their career as part of a supportive, collaborative and forward-thinking subject team.

Our ethos is ‘Aspiring and Achieving Together’ and the school vision is;

  • Create a culture of respect where all members feel valued and included, encourage innovation, and strive for excellence in all endeavours.
  • Provide students with outstanding pastoral support, guidance, and resources necessary to thrive academically, creatively, and personally.
  • Deliver a rigorous and empowering curriculum with employability skills at the core, in order to prepare students for navigating an ever-changing world.

The Westleigh School enjoys a successful partnership with the Shaw Education Trust, which is a growing multi academy trust led by an Executive Leadership Team steeped in school leadership and improvement experience. Working with the Shaw Education Trust also allows colleagues to access a large range of well-established training opportunities and work alongside like-minded professionals across a range of schools.

What the school offers its staff

SHAW EDUCATION TRUST was established in 2014 and is sponsored by Shaw Trust and is a growing group of dynamically awesome academies providing education to children of all ages and abilities. Staff across our team of schools are dedicated to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to be successful, whatever their starting point in life. Unlike other MATs, we don’t enforce a curriculum for all our schools to follow. Instead, we support each individual school to offer a programme that enables our students to deepen their knowledge, develop their skills, sparks their imagination and fires their curiosity.

To achieve this, we pledge an unswerving commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals amongst all our students, and provide our schools with the support they need to deliver the highest possible quality of education. Every action we take as a Trust is guided by our core values, with the best interest of our students and staff members at the heart of everything we do.

Colleagues within the Trust benefit from:

  • Access to a full range of courses both in-house and professionally accredited. These courses include all of the National Professional Qualifications – NPQH, NPQSL, NPQML.
  • High quality subject and thematic networks across the Trust and the region.
  • Experienced leadership and subject-specific support.
  • Guidance from former HMIs and serving Ofsted Inspectors within the Trust.
  • Access to the Trust’s Teaching School, Research School, Institute of Education and SCITT.
  • Opportunities to work with different schools within the Trust as a Professional Advocate.
  • Participating in peer reviews.
  • Access to a suite of online courses.
  • Placement projects within our family of schools.
