Teacher of Maths job summary

Teacher of Mathematics

The Role

To provide highly effective teaching of Maths across all key stages, contributing to the ongoing development of the Faculty. To be a full and contributing member of the Maths Faculty and the Academy.

The Maths Faculty at David Nieper Academy

The Maths Faculty at David Nieper Academy teaches both Mathematics and Statistics at key stages 3, 4 & 5 as well as leading on whole school numeracy.

In Key Stage 3 & 4, students follow a spiral Mastery Mathematics curriculum which covers the subject content requirements of:

Key Stage 3 Mathematics & Statistics

GCSE Mathematics

GCSE Statistics

Level 2 Further Mathematics (more able year 11)

At Key Stage 5, we have a GCSE Maths resit group we are also very excited to have introduced A-Level Maths in September 2021 and we are looking forward to developing our A-Level curriculum.

We use the Teaching for Mastery approach within our Key Stage 3 & 4 Mathematics curriculum and the maths team work together to collaboratively plan lessons that develop a deep and lasting understanding of mathematical procedures and concepts. Lessons are designed to have a high-level of teacher-student and student-student interaction and students are taught to use mathematics creatively to solve problems and explore multiple representations and methods within maths lessons.

Employability is embedded into our maths curriculum, and we use examples of how Mathematics and Statistics are used in other subject areas across the Academy as well as within different industries and aspects of everyday life to enable students to make links and develop an understanding of why we learn Mathematics.

We are actively involved in the local NCETM Maths Hub providing plenty of opportunities for subject specific professional development and involvement in national projects & working groups. Through our engagement with the NCETM this year, members of the Maths Faculty have accessed a wide range of CPD opportunities and have worked collaboratively with other local schools to improve the teaching of Mathematics.

This is an immensely exciting time to join this relatively new faculty on our drive to promote a love for Mathematics and dispel the myth that some people “just can’t do maths”. Our Teaching Mastery approach is proving popular with our students and more students than ever are engaged in their maths lessons and are encouraged by the belief that everyone can do maths. You will be working collaboratively as part of a supportive team who are committed to developing our own subject pedagogy and building a curriculum that ensures all students can succeed.

Our Academy is sponsored by the Christopher Nieper Education Trust (previously David Nieper Education Trust), together with local employer partners, who are highly committed in supporting the development and achievements of our students. With a clearly defined approach to teaching, applied learning and brand-new purpose-built facilities, which opened in February 2017, we believe that this is a truly exciting time to join the academy. We are a growing academy now of 780 students 11-18 and will soon be at our full capacity of 850 students 11-18. This role is a new post due to our growing pupil numbers. Our September 2022 Ofsted Inspection graded the academy as ‘Good in all areas’, a fantastic improvement from the ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating when we took over the academy - and we endeavour to build on this as we grow and develop further. We are currently the only academy within the Trust however the Trust is likely to grow in the very near future with a number of other schools actively looking to join.
