Benefits to joining The Cowplain School:
Start date: September 2019
The Cowplain School is seeking to appoint a skilled and inspirational Teacher of Maths. It is vital that you have the skills to form effective relationships with students, parents and colleagues and have the passion and drive to ensure our students receive the best possible learning opportunities.
We are extremely ambitious for our 800 students and have a strong vision to ensure that the life-chances of every young person are enhanced by quality teaching, leading to excellent outcomes. Having secured a ‘Good’ OFSTED in July 2018 we are now looking for staff who can take us to ‘Outstanding.’
We have placed Numeracy and Literacy at the heart of our curriculum and are committed to investing in those areas. All students receive four hours of Maths teaching per week in KS4 and seven hours a fortnight at KS3. Our new and innovative KS3 curriculum that we are currently delivering sees numeracy embedded in all subjects that students undertake. We are developing exciting programmes that enhance students’ opportunities to study maths.
As a teacher at Cowplain we would invest in you to ensure that you develop the skills and expertise needed to ensure those that you teach acquire numeracy skills vital to their future. All classrooms in the Maths department are based together and were recently refurbished and enhanced. All teachers teach in their own room, equipped with projector and screen, and every teacher receives a laptop. We offer all members of staff a full induction programme and significant opportunities to develop their expertise. Colleagues at the school work together to support each other and we have an active wellbeing committee.
The closing date for receipt of fully completed application forms is midday on Friday 1st March 2019.
The Academy reserves the right to interview earlier should suitable candidates apply.
The Cowplain School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
