What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an inspiring, enthusiastic and ambitious Mathematics teacher, to join our forward thinking and supportive Mathematics Department from April/September 2023.

The successful candidate will be, or aspire to be, an outstanding classroom practitioner. We are looking for a teacher who can enthuse our pupils with a passion for mathematics and encourage them to think mathematically. The successful candidate will have an enthusiasm for working with and improving the life chances of young people. A willingness to participate in departmental extra-curricular activities is essential.

Swanmore Supports Your Professional Development

We are fully committed to championing professional development and all teaching staff are allocated a specific slot for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) reducing a teaching load by one period a week.

Swanmore Supports New Teachers Entering the Profession

If you are considering applying as an Early Careers Teacher (ECT), we are equipped to support you through our in-house Rural School Alliance training and teaching school. The requirements of the new ECT programme are embedded in our provision, and the support for you as an ECT includes two periods a week of ECT Study time and one period a week with your dedicated mentor. Your mentor will also have dedicated periods in the week to support you through the programme.

Swanmore Supports Your Career Goals

We have a successful mentoring and coaching culture at Swanmore that supports teachers at all levels of their career to pursue professional development in the direction that most interests them. We would actively encourage interest from candidates who would like to pursue their professional development through the Department for Education (DFE) ‘National professional qualifications’ (NPQs) route when the next round of applications open in 2023.



What the school offers its staff

Swanmore provides:

- Access to internal training development opportunities (we support National Professional Qualifications at all levels, run an Extended Leadership Secondment and can contribute to Masters/PhD courses)

- Access to a wealth of CPD, such as The National College, Optimus and iHasco and a free subscription to TES Magazine online, along with a CPD hour on the timetable

- Access to Professional & Career Coaches/Mentors and self-evaluation tools (such as Swivl)

- An array of staff wellbeing initiatives: Staff extra-curricular activities such as Yoga, Football, Walking club and Baking club, free refreshments, fresh fruit, and food on Parents’ Evenings and Events

- Free on-site parking

- Employee Assistance Programme

- Free Microsoft Office for home and loan equipment available (visualizer, graphics tablet, device)

- Staff Membership of our Fitness Suite for £15 per year with exclusive staff only times

Further details about the role

Alongside a dedicated mentor to successfully achieve this qualification, you will be given time – in addition to the CPD period all teachers receive, you will receive an additional protected period included in your teaching load to support the DFE estimated ‘average weekly study time of 1 to 2 hours’ for the qualification.

We have included the links below to the 4NPQsin specialist areas of teaching that have been designed by the DFE with both classroom teachers and leaders in mind. They are:

  • Leading teacher development– learn how to become a teacher educator and successfully support teachers in your school to expand their skills
  • Leading teaching– learn how to lead the teaching and learning of a subject, year group or phase
  • Leading behaviour and culture– learn how to create a culture of good behaviour and high expectations in which staff and pupils can thrive
  • Leading literacy– learn how to effectively teach and promote literacy across the whole school, year group, key stage or phase
