Teacher of Mathematics 

Permanent FTE  

Payscale range: NQT/MPS/UPS  

Required from:  September 2021

An opportunity to teach mathematics should be seen as an exciting prospect and the opening currently available at Lawnswood School is far more than ‘just another maths job’. 

We are on a journey that is revolutionising the student experience at Lawnswood School, both across school and in our maths department.  The fabric of our school is based on continuous improvement and commitment to progression.  To accommodate this in maths, we make a significant financial investment in our maths mastery partnership programme and have a collective commitment to deliver improvement and innovation in the classroom and across the wider school community.

Our improvement strategy is not based on annual trends.  We are striving to achieve lasting change in staff and students so that maths outcomes are predictably excellent and that all of our students leave with true skills for life. 

We look forward to receiving applications from experienced and NQT candidates.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
