Teacher of Mathematics job summary


For July or September 2022

We are looking for an enthusiastic teacher with excellent knowledge and relevant teaching qualification to join our team and teach Mathematics at all Key Stages. The successful candidate will be an outstanding practitioner with a clear vision of how they can inspire students, raising their aspiration and achievement.

This is an ideal opportunity for an ECT to undertake their Induction training in a school with a proven track record of providing excellent professional support for all staff, or an experienced teacher looking to return to teaching or for a new challenge and great CPD opportunities in a supportive school.

Maths makes sense of the world around us and helps us to understand the natural world as well as the man-made environment. Students learn about number, algebra, geometry, ratio and proportion, statistics and probability. The students will be required to develop numerical fluency to gain a broad range of skills. They will be required to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills to effectively apply this knowledge to successfully answer a range of probing mathematical questions and problems.

We believe that Maths lessons should be enjoyable, accessible and applicable. The subject is relevant to everyone. The cultural aspects of the development of mathematics are explored and the universality of the subject is celebrated. We strive to develop the philosophy of achievement, to create an environment where all students develop the desire to improve, to take responsibility for their learning and to extend this development inside and outside of the classroom.

We can offer you a rewarding opportunity to work in a welcoming and supportive environment. Our students are eager to learn, work hard and achieve well. Pupils and staff treat each other with respect and courtesy. Around the building and in lessons, pupils behave very well. Senior leaders are ambitious for Cottesloe students. The Headteacher is supported by talented and committed staff. Staff are very proud to work at the school. They feel valued because leaders consider their workload. (Ofsted - Continues to be a Good school, November 2021).

Additional allowances

We are a forward-looking school with a Headteacher who leads an experienced and stable senior leadership team who have a passion for creating an inclusive learning environment, which enables all students to meet high expectations. All staff and students are highly valued. Through our personalised CPD programme we offer first class commitment to developing individuals to reach their full potential. Emphasis on staff wellbeing is central to our culture and we provide a vibrant and caring working environment.

Buckinghamshire Council and The Cottesloe School have a wide range of benefits available to you as an employee, from enhancements to your pay package to the flexible ways you can fit your working life around the demands of your home life.
