About the role: Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy has a rare and exciting opportunity to appoint an Advanced Practitioner of Maths, joining us from late August / September 2021. We are seeking to appoint an exceptional individual who will have the opportunity to innovate and develop as an outstanding practitioner and work to ensure our vision of delivering teaching excellence comes to fruition.
You will work closely with our Director of Learning for Maths as part of a team who embrace the latest developments in Mathematics teaching and are committed to promoting the joy, beauty and power of Mathematics to our young people. We are innovative in our approach to teaching and proud to be an evidence based - research led group of teaching professionals and you will assist in developing advanced skills within the team and across the academy. The Maths department has a variety of backgrounds and experiences and we 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 progress and success in Maths.
Our Key stage 3 classes are taught using an innovative Maths Mastery programme. This is run 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 10. We invest heavily so that colleagues have ongoing access to weekly high-quality professional development and a curriculum focused on developing conceptual understanding and Mathematical thinking.
We are looking for someone who is:
- committed to make a difference to all pupils through high expectations, positive relationships and highly effective lessons.
- looking to use their expertise to keep driving the improvements of teaching and learning across the department for all pupils.
Being a part of Stationers' Crown Woods Academy: The academy has a zero tolerance approach to misbehaviour and low-level disruption, our behaviour systems are tightly managed so that teachers are able to focus on delivering high quality teaching in a positive classroom environment that is conducive to learning. The £50 million campus incorporates four home schools each serving 450 students, alongside a range of state-of-the-art resources for sport, the arts and digital communication. This structure has enabled us to build an academy where every pupil is able to achieve their full potential. An academy where no child feels lost and no child is left behind. An academy where the bonds between parent, teacher and child are strong. As part of The Leigh Academies Trust we are able to offer even further scope for collaboration, developing best practice, staff investment and training opportunities at both classroom and leadership level.
Being a part of Leigh Academies Trust: As of 1st September 2020, our Trust will comprise 28 geographically organised academies (11 secondaries, 15 primaries and 2 special) educating over 16,000 students, and employing over 2,500 talented staff. We also have one further secondary academy in the development phase, due to open in September 2021. The Trust is establishing four ‘clusters’ of academies: North West Kent; Central Kent; South East London; Medway. In addition, the Trust is responsible for one of the region’s biggest initial teaching training providers and a large teaching school.
As part of Leigh Academies Trust you will have ample opportunity to collaborate with your peers both within the academy and across the whole Trust. This is an important part of our vision as we know through experience that we perform better when we work together. You are supported to undertake regular self-development to continue your professional development and hopefully progress further within the organisation.
