What skills and experience we're looking for

We are characterised by how we treat our people

“Pupils enjoy attending this thriving and popular school. They feel a strong sense of belonging to the school community. Pupils achieve well and almost all successfully move on to apprenticeships, A levels or other forms of education, employment or training. Staff have high expectations of behaviour and know pupils very well.”

Ofsted April 2023

At SJT we value and care for all our staff and take staff well-being seriously. We take staff’s work/life balance seriously and this is reflected by, amongst other things, ensuring teachers receive a minimum 20% non-contact time. We are committed to reducing the marking and planning workload.

We wish to appoint an excellent Maths teacher who can help us to further develop our Maths department and show real ambition for our students. We have a well-established team and well-resourced department. Our curriculum is embedded and is built around the Mastery model. We support this with a wide range of online support to manage homework and assessment including Pinpoint Learning and Sparx Maths. We have a good record of developing our people at SJT and providing leadership opportunities - so this post would suit a recently or newly qualified colleague, or a more experienced colleague who could add some value to our team. Our young people show a positive attitude to learning in Maths and we have good outcomes at GCSE.

What the school offers its staff

This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to contribute to our work and benefit from an excellent environment, where teachers are encouraged to progress their careers with us. We have great facilities ensuring students and staff have the best learning environment in which to achieve. SJT is a very positive community, with our recent staff survey showing that over 95% of our staff enjoy coming to work and are proud to be part of our school. At SJT we view the professional development of all staff as a priority and our innovative ‘Learn Together’ initiative enables all staff to be on our outstanding teacher programme.

We are looking for a teacher who shares our drive and passion to inspire our students with their love of their subject and the motivation to ensure every student achieves through:

  • Outstanding classroom practice and an ability to engage all young people.
  • A commitment to contribute to our enrichment programme
  • The ability to motivate students of all abilities to achieve their full potential.
  • A passion and commitment to raise standards and achievement.
  • The ability to work and contribute as part of a team.
  • Commitment, resilience, patience, hard work and a good sense of humour.
  • The willingness to do what it takes to achieve a goal.

The successful candidate will fully embrace our ethos of ‘Belong, Believe Achieve’ whilst bringing fresh ideas that will build on current strengths and achievements. We welcome applications from applicants at all stages of their career. Whilst the post will ideally be for full time hours, requests for part time / job share will be considered.
