Teacher of Maths job summary

Do you want to be part of a team where you will help make a lasting impact on our students, many of whom are disadvantaged, and rapidly accelerate their progress?

Do you want to work in a school where you are free to teach, with impeccable student behaviour and unhindered by bureaucracy?

Netherwood Academy is an 11-16 academy which opened in September 2012, set in an extensive £35 million campus. As part of Astrea Academy Trust, Netherwood Academy is in an exciting period of development.

As a Teacher of Maths, you will excel in the classroom - but, just as importantly, you will be instrumental in supporting your departmental colleagues to be the best they can be, in the classroom and beyond, and be involved in mentoring, coaching, professional development and challenge.

The ideal candidate will be an ambitious classroom practitioner with a desire to achieve strong outcomes. We need someone who wants to become a beacon of excellent practice in a classroom environment, whilst possessing the muscularity of intellect and professional credibility to drive up standards in the classroom for all our young people.

We are committed to a knowledge-rich curriculum and a traditional approach to teaching, behaviour and culture. We believe that schools must teach powerful knowledge, ’the best that has been thought and said’ and an ‘entitlement curriculum’ for all. We believe in explicit instruction and are greatly influenced by Lemov’s ‘Teach Like A Champion’, Rosenshine and recent developments in cognitive science. We believe that the creation of a scholarly culture that is warm and strict, disciplined and joyful, where there is ‘purpose not power’, ensuring impeccable behaviour, where teachers can focus on teaching and pupils can focus on learning, underpins everything.

We are values-driven and our vision is to provide an inclusive, aspirational and academic education for all our students, so that all of them will learn, thrive and lead successful lives. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We want to ensure that all our students have the option to be able to go to university or aspirational alternative. We are not going to reduce expectations because of a child’s background or home life, or because they are new to English or have a special education need. In fact, the opposite is true. It is our job to redouble our efforts to help children overcome these barriers so that they can flourish.

We value our staff highly and treat workload very seriously. Our systems are high leverage, ensuring you can really focus on your core purpose – teaching, in a sustainable way, unhindered by bureaucracy or poor behaviour.

What we offer:

  • Huge support and progression opportunities
  • A knowledge-rich curriculum, built on ‘powerful knowledge’ and a traditional T&L approach built around Rosenshine and TLAC
  • Collaborative planning with centralised, shared units of work and resources
  • Excellent support from the Astrea Trust Central team
  • A feedback policy focused on whole class feedback – no onerous marking policies
  • Disruption-free learning and a ‘warm/strict’ behaviour system
  • Highly visible/supportive senior leaders who have your back
  • Centralised detentions, including homework detentions (you do not need to organise/run/chase them at all)
  • No formal graded lesson observations – just ongoing ‘no-stakes’ instructional coaching, helping you to continuously develop
  • Excellent ongoing CPD, career development and promotion opportunities across the Astrea South Yorkshire region
  • Opportunity to complete NPQs
  • An unrivalled professional progression model.

What we are looking for:

The successful candidate will be:

  • A highly effective professional, who is able to motivate and encourage colleagues to share our vision
  • Aligned to our values and mission. If you are the type of person who fits with our culture, you will love working here
  • Someone who passionately believes that all children can achieve, no matter what their starting point, background or needs.

Interested in applying?

If this is something you are interested in, looking for a new challenge, have a passion for education or maybe all of the above, take a look at the Applicant Brief to find out more about the role and how to apply.

We actively welcome visits and would be delighted to show you around our academy to appreciate fully our excellent learning environment (details in the applicant brief).

The closing date for all applications is midnight on 5 May 2024.

Netherwood Academy is an 11-16 academy which opened in September 2012, set in an extensive £35 million campus. As part of Astrea Academy Trust, Netherwood Academy is in an exciting period of development.

A WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Netherwood Academy. I took the helm here at the beginning of September 2020 after almost 10 years Headship experience in two schools elsewhere in Yorkshire, and I am committed, alongside my staff team, to doing everything in my power to ensure Netherwood is the school of choice for all secondary-age students in the wider community.

We have ambitious plans to take the school further on its journey to “inspiring beyond measure”, backed by Astrea, a forward-looking and values-driven trust which operates a large number of primary and secondary schools throughout South Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire.

My personal ambitions for Netherwood are very straightforward – to provide an excellent all-round education for every student, whatever their background, and inspire them to be ambitious for themselves, both academically and socially, so that they go out into the wider world as responsible citizens, fully-equipped for what life has to offer. This will include a commitment from us, as staff, to broadening students’ general cultural awareness, and we aim to do this through high expectations and an unapologetic focus on students doing the right thing day-in, day-out. We believe this will make all of our classrooms and corridors disruption-free, enabling teachers to teach high-quality lessons and students to learn and thrive every day.

Our facilities are modern and extensive, and we have worked hard to ensure curriculum areas and extra-curricular activities are well-resourced and accessible to everyone. We have dedicated, state-of-the-art spaces for indoor and outdoor Physical Education, as well as the Visual and Performing Arts, including Music, Drama and Dance.

More and more families from the local area are choosing Netherwood for their children than ever before, and staff at the school have the confidence to send their own children here, in greater numbers than we have ever seen – this is testament to the rapid improvements we have made over the past two years, and which we continue to make.

When Ofsted next visit us, we are adamant that we will be judged to be a Good school, for the first time in the school’s history; the work we have already undertaken means we are well on the way to achieving this ambition.

Our academy is a bright and vibrant community, where children sit at the very heart of everything we do. I very much hope it is a community you would like to be part of.

Best wishes

Mr J Mitchel
