Teacher of Maths (Primary Specialist) with Maths Hub Leadership Outwood Grange Academies Trust (Central Region), Wakefield

Main Scale
0.6/0.8 Teacher of Maths and 0.2 Maths Hub
Start date
January 2020

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is right at the forefront of maths education, both in terms of ensuring students are taught maths for deep understanding, and in enabling every student to leave school with a maths qualification that opens doors for them. We have a curriculum that allows for this and the training and support for teachers to feel confident to facilitate this for all.

Our Executive Director leads the Yorkshire and Humber Maths Hub. This, as well as her work with the DfE, means OGAT maths is helping to inform and mould the landscape of maths, regionally and nationally. We have a great training package for NQTs and teachers new to the academy including: Teaching for Mastery; Open Classroom events; Maths Matters; TSST; Reasoning at KS3; weekly professional development time and further programmes free through the Outwood Institute of Education. We invest in you so you invest in our students.

We are seeking to appoint a primary specialist to work with some of our younger children with weak numeracy skills and gaps in the early mathematical understanding, who love maths and have a passion to develop this in others. This is a new and exciting opportunity for a primary specialist teacher who could progress quickly across our Family of Schools, if that’s what you were looking for, by developing a model that is truly impactful through maths leadership or through our Deeps structure. Additionally you would spend one day per week working in the Yorkshire and Humber Maths Hub; this may include leading workgroups, developing training programmes, marketing the work of the maths hub and supporting teachers in other schools.

Applications will be considered for academies within Wakefield and surrounding areas, this will be discussed with you in more detail at the interview. The academies in the central region are:

• Outwood Academy Carlton
• Outwood Academy Shafton
• Outwood Grange Academy
• Outwood Academy Hemsworth
• Outwood Academy City Fields
• Outwood Academy Freeston
