Teacher of Maths
About the role: Stationers' Crown Woods Academy are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Maths who will join and strengthen the department from January 2020. Whilst this role is suitable for teachers ranging from their NQT year to many years' experience in the profession, we are seeking to appoint an individual who can build rapport with our students and motivate them in the subject.
Upon joining the Maths team at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, our successful applicants will be a part of a department who embrace the latest developments in mathematics teaching and are committed to promoting the joy, beauty and power of mathematics to our young people. The Maths team have a variety of backgrounds and experiences and we aim to utilise the collective knowledge and skills to offer outstanding levels of support for our students. We encourage collaboration, debate and discussion both within our team and in our classrooms and strongly believe that this culture has led to the excellent track record of success in Maths. We are committed to ensuring that all of students make excellent progress regardless of starting points. Over the last four years the proportions of students at the academy securing Grade 9-4 in Maths has exceeded national averages, and are now working hard to ensure that our most able students secure the highest grades.
Mathematics is very popular in the sixth form and there is a large uptake of the subject at AS and A-level in both Maths and Further Maths; we have now also introduced core maths as part of the curriculum offer.
Our Key Stage 3 classes are taught using an innovative Maths Mastery method. This is alongside the IB MYP in order to develop a deep and broad Mathematical understanding within our students in preparation for their GCSE studies, which commence in Year 9. We invest heavily so that staff have ongoing access to weekly high-quality professional development and a curriculum focused on developing conceptual understanding. Our curriculum is underpinned by research on task design, variation theory, concept development and raising achievement. Full training will be available to the successful candidate.
