We are characterised by how we treat our people

“Pupils enjoy attending this thriving and popular school.  They feel a strong sense of belonging to the school community.  Pupils achieve well and almost all successfully move on to apprenticeships, A levels or other forms of education, employment or training.  Staff have high expectations of behaviour and know pupils very well.”

At SJT we value and care for all our staff and take staff well-being seriously.  We take staff’s work/life balance seriously and this is reflected by, amongst other things, ensuring teachers receive a minimum 20% non-contact time. We are committed to reducing the marking and planning workload.

We wish to appoint an excellent Maths teacher who can help us to further develop our Maths department and show real ambition for our students. We have a well-established team and well-resourced department. Our curriculum is embedded and is built around the Mastery model. We support this with a wide range of online support to manage homework and assessment including Pinpoint Learning and Sparx Maths. We have a good record of developing our people at SJT and providing leadership opportunities - so this post would suit a recently or newly qualified colleague, or a more experienced colleague who could add some value to our team. Our young people show a positive attitude to learning in Maths and we have good outcomes at GCSE.
