An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Head of Maths to develop their leadership at Tarleton Academy, a vibrant and ambitious school with a culture of high expectations. Tarleton Academy is part of Endeavour Learning Trust, a small family of schools in Lancashire and we are now looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and creative Head of Maths to join our successful, supportive and mutually ambitious team working with the support of the Trust Executive Director of Maths.  The successful candidate will join a group of forward thinking academies who have a relentless focus on providing outstanding learning experiences and raising achievement.  

At Tarleton you will lead a committed team of specialist Maths teachers and supported by the Executive Director of Maths, you will be involved in collaborative planning and professional development, reviewing and developing schemes of work and resources, addressing gaps in attainment of underachieving students and ensuring progression for all students. The ability to contribute to the drive for high standards, attainment and progress for all learners in Maths and inspire and develop outstanding classroom practice with high aspirations is a common goal for all our staff. A passion for learning with creative ideas, and an ability to build positive relationships and embed an enjoyment of your subject into lessons is essential.

In our schools we have a relentless focus on excellence, high standards of behaviour but with the pragmatic emphasis on the balance between challenge and support, high expectation and nurture. And this counts for students and staff, teaching and non-teaching, so that our schools develop a family ethos, where everyone wants the best for everyone else.

For our staff, we are firmly committed to ensuring this is a job that can be enjoyed, where everyone can flourish. We pay close attention to work/home balance and, across the Trust; we are developing strategies that take a common sense approach to those aspects of the role that could become an unnecessary burden on workload such as feedback and marking and centralised detentions. We have a strong, consistent behaviour policy where staff are fully supported in their teaching and students understand the consequences of their actions which enables teachers to get on and teach.

Our Teaching School is central to our Trust and our teachers learn together, sharing their practice and encouraging and supporting each other to get the best out of our working day. The successful candidate will have opportunities to work with other colleagues in the Teaching School to support and develop the teaching of Maths with our family of schools. In our career progression pathway the successful candidate will have access to a professional leadership development programme.

In our team, therefore, our teachers are committed to continuously improving the classroom experience of our students with a genuine desire to improve the life chances of our young people.

If you think this sounds like a place you would like to develop the next step in your career and your love of teaching then you can apply online.

As part of the interview process candidates will be required to teach a 45 minute lesson to a Year 10 class. 

Candidates should ensure that they and their referees are easily contactable, with the correct phone number and email address and able to reply promptly if references are requested.

Prospective candidates are welcome and encouraged to contact the school for a tour prior to the final application please contact Mrs G Higham, Operations Manager, at g.higham@tarletonacademy.org  to organise a tour.
