Teacher of Mathematics job summary

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and values driven teacher to join a dedicated and supportive department. The successful candidate will be required to teach Mathematics to GCSE level.

The Malling School is an extremely positive, happy and caring place for young people to learn. Our core school values are ‘Caring, Determined and Reflective’ and these values are embraced by all staff and children. The Malling School is proud to announce that we have been awarded the ‘Character Education Kitemark +’ and have been recognised as a school of character. The Malling School has recently been selected to be a character education hub to support schools nationally.

Comments by assessors:
“We are delighted to award the Malling School the School of Character Kitemark, a great testament to the school's leadership, staff and pupils”
“Behaviour in the school is generally outstanding and the overall calmness between lessons and in non-supervised areas was striking. Students were confident and assertive but always polite and appreciative of the needs of others”

We have a very strong behaviour for learning policy. Low-level disruption is not tolerated allowing teachers to do what we do best, teach. All staff receive regular informal behaviour for learning training to ensure we are consistent in our application of the policy. Students are very clear around our high expectations of behaviour and attitude in every classroom. The key to the success of the policy is the proactive targeting of poor work ethic and low-level disruption by every teacher. Students that slow down the pace of learning are transferred out of the lesson and collected by our senior leaders.

The leadership team ensures that all our improvement strategies are clearly communicated to staff, effectively piloted, evaluated and well thought through. Our key principle when introducing any new initiative is to ensure that there is no unnecessary workload and that it has a high impact on student progress.
