Teacher of Mathematics Full time Permanent Position
Required September 2023

As a result of the ongoing growth and development of our school we are looking to appoint an additional highly enthusiastic, inspiring and motivational Teacher of Mathematics.

You will be a key part of our teaching team, delivering the very best quality Teaching and Learning in the core subject of Mathematics and will be expected to teach across both Key Stages. This is an experienced and established department, which is able and committed to supporting, developing and nurturing both new and experienced teachers.

You will be an innovative and ambitious individual who must employ a wide range of strategies, be enthusiastic, resourceful and keen to ensure the highest possible standards of student achievement. We seek a team player with strong communication skills, both oral and written, good organisational skills and the ability to meet deadlines.

At Lathom we continually drive forward standards and are passionate about maximising the potential in all of our staff and young people. Our caring and nurturing approach to education within and beyond the classroom contributes to what makes our school a special place both to work and to learn. We place great value on the fulfilment and well-being of our colleagues; our successes to date are in no small part down to their hard work, commitment and determination, and our growing student roll enables us to provide opportunities for both personal and career development. The word PROUD is at the heart of everything we do at Lathom. Our school was inspected by Ofsted in June 2022 and is now judged to be GOOD in all areas. This is testament to the vision, dedication and commitment which has been shown by the staff team and governors and the hard work from the students themselves. We are so PROUD of this outcome and the comments made in the report.

The post is equally suitable for either an ECT or an experienced teacher and we would be delighted to hear from you.
