Permanent, Full Time

September 2024

New Rickstones Academy is graded 'Good' (November 2023) and has a state of the art building offering fantastic facilities for both students and staff. A new building opened in September 2022 providing additional technology, science, IT and general teaching rooms. From September 2022, our PAN increased from 180 to 240 and we are now oversubscribed. Maths is a vital part of our curriculum at Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 and we are the only Sixth Form provider in Witham.

Every member of staff is a vital part of our committed and ambitious team and we have been very successful at developing teachers and leaders with progression both within, and beyond the academy.

The Maths department boasts a comprehensive curriculum, designed to foster a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and skills essential for success in higher education and beyond.

Our team of educators comprises experienced teachers who are passionate about mathematics and dedicated to nurturing students' mathematical abilities. With their guidance, students receive the support and mentorship needed to excel in their studies. We employ innovative teaching methods and resources to engage students and enhance their learning experience. From interactive lessons to hands-on activities, we strive to make mathematics accessible and enjoyable for all learners.

Our department is committed to preparing students for assessments. Through rigorous instruction and targeted exam preparation strategies, we equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed at the end of KS4/5. We understand that every student learns differently, which is why we offer individualised support to meet the unique needs of each learner. Whether through extra help sessions, one-on-one tutoring, or differentiated instruction, we ensure that every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential in mathematics. We offer various extra-currciular visits to encourage students to see mathematics outside of the classroom.

Our "Curriculum Drivers" run through all that we do as we encourage students to be safe, happy, the best they can be, and be proud.

Mastery: delivering excellent teaching & learning and developing excellent learners. Students are ambitious and committed.

Character: developing students into well rounded young people who we can be confident in to "do the right thing when no-one is looking".

Perspective: how our students fit into the world around them, how they appropriately challenge wrongs, and promote what is right. Students are open minded, compassionate and recognise the differences found in all of us.

We are looking for a Second in Charge of Maths to join us. You will support the Head of Maths in leading, managing and developing the department, maximising student achievement and progress.
