Person Specification
Job Description

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and reflective mathematics teacher to join our well-established and successful faculty. ECTs are welcome to apply, whilst suitably qualified candidates may also be considered for the additional role leading Key Stage 5 Mathematics.

At JMS we believe that everyone is able to learn Mathematics well. Our goal as a Faculty is to work to engender in our students an appreciation of the intrinsic value of mathematics, and we want all students to achieve mathematical confidence through a deep understanding of the subject.  Our “teach for understanding” mantra is apparent in every lesson and our curriculum is structured in such a way that we can dedicate faculty meeting time to exploring the progression of a particular topic from Year 7 to 11. We believe that successful learning of mathematics requires a diet of explicit teaching that builds on students’ prior understanding of mathematical ideas, supported by regular deliberate practice and application of knowledge.  This is supplemented by the sharing of clear communication and problem-solving strategies and opportunities to share in the awe and wonder that we each hold for our subject.

The Faculty is committed to maintaining workload at a manageable level and ensures that practices are informed by evidence and evaluation. Written feedback is minimised and systems are in place to ensure whole-class feedback is effective and efficient. We are on a journey to improve our curriculum and assessment still further and this is an exciting time to join the Faculty and work alongside experienced and dedicated colleagues.

If you are committed to inspiring your students to learn how mathematics helps them to understand the world, feel the satisfaction of solving a challenging problem, and value the transferable mathematical skills developed though purposeful practice, then we encourage you to apply.

The successful candidate will be:

  • an enthusiastic mathematician, able to ignite interest in mathematics from students and colleagues;
  • committed to ensuring that all students reach their potential regardless of prior attainment;
  • capable of promoting partnerships and collaborative working in our school, across the Abingdon Learning Trust and in the wider mathematics teaching community.
  • a role model for our students and staff;
  • effective in setting and attaining high standards of student progress;
  • active in working to develop their own teaching practice.

Additionally, if you wish to also apply for the role of KS5 Coordinator, please indicate this in your letter of application. For this role, your principal responsibilities would be:

  • To support the Director of Faculty on the continuous development of the KS5 Mathematics Maths and Further Maths curriculum, and to continue to develop and improve these schemes based on effective evaluation of current practice and performance
  • To maintain appropriate assessments for Maths and Further Maths A Level, and to ensure their use as effective monitoring and feedback mechanisms
  • To stay abreast of current research in the teaching of Mathematics at Level 3, and disseminate good practice among the Department
  • To support the Director of Faculty (DOF) in the monitoring of progress and teaching across all A Level subjects in the Maths Department
  • To play a full part in the leadership of the wider Maths Department as directed by the DOF, contributing positively to discussions with leaders and reflections within the Department

In return we will offer you:

  • the support and satisfaction of being part of a dynamic and creative team led by very experienced and highly motivated staff.
  • students who have a desire to achieve and respect the school’s expectations.
  • a programme of supported induction and continuing professional development firmly rooted in educational research.
  • a commitment to supporting the well-being of all staff.
