Teacher of Mathematics job summary

QEGSMAT are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Teacher of Mathematics to join our hardworking team at the City of Derby Academy (CODA).  

The Mathematics Department at CoDA is well-resourced and fully staffed with experienced subject specialists, most of whom have additional responsibilities for whole-school numeracy, disciplinary literacy, MESME and SEND/LPA provision. 

CODA’s most recent Ofsted inspection (March 2024) recognised that the mathematics curriculum is well-designed and supports student independence, resilience and confidence. Intelligently designed assessments also help staff and students to identify and address learning gaps and misconceptions. We also offer a range of enrichment opportunities and the buy-in from our students is very high. Some students also study the AQA ELC course and whilst this provides a qualification in its own right; it also supports GCSE accessibility for students most in need of it. In short, we provide an education of mathematics that is challenging, yet appropriate and engaging for all our students. 

We serve a very diverse community with over 30 home languages. The school’s vision is “improving the life chances of all students”. Moreover, we continually strive to develop our students’ character through our core values of Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Achieve, which underpin everything we do, every day. 

The Ofsted inspection report (March 2024) is overwhelmingly positive and recognises the strengths of the school and the continued progress being made. Some highlights are: 

  • CODA is a school that welcomes and celebrates the diversity of the local community.
  • There is a caring ethos. Pupils feel safe. The Vast majority are happy.
  • The school has high expectations of all pupils.
  • Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who speak English as an additional language are well supported to learn the curriculum.
  • Leaders have secured many improvements since the school's last inspection.
  • The curriculum has been strengthened.
  • Behaviour is now good.
  • Pupils are polite and respectful to each other adults.
  • There are strong relationships between staff and pupils.
  • Pupils receive high-quality pastoral support. They know that staff are always available to talk to them if they have concerns.
  • Leaders consider staff's well-being and workload.
  • Staff overwhelmingly enjoy working at the school. 

The inspection report aligns with the academy’s own self-evaluation, and the inspection team recognised that leaders already have the right plans in place to secure the improvements required to achieve “good” overall at the next inspection.

City of Derby Academy is also a proud member of QEGSMAT. At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that an exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every student to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.

QEGSMAT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. It is a criminal offence to engage or seek to engage in regulated activity or regulated work with children, if you appear on the DBS barred list. All appointments are subject to an Enhanced DBS check and be eligible to work in the UK.

Why work for us?

That’s why we are proud to offer an Automatic Pay Review program, rather than the traditional annual pay and performance review, as part of our comprehensive benefits package.
  • Continual access to CPD opportunities. QEGSMAT works with a large number of organisations to develop staff to fulfil their aspirations and potential. We are committed to providing first-rate training and development to all our staff within this evolving Trust.
  • We are committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination, and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.

  • Access to the Teacher Pension Scheme employer contributions of 28.68% for Teachers.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Access to Flu Vaccines.
  • Opportunity to work flexibly.
