Fixed Term – Part Time Maternity Cover, equivalent to 0.8
Required from 7th June -23rd July 2021

The Governors wish to appoint an excellent Teacher of Science and Maths to provide cover for a maternity leave. This post should appeal to both recently qualified teachers or to more experienced candidates, looking to develop further in an outstanding school. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone wishing to join an outstanding department and a highly successful and forward thinking school. The Science teaching will include KS3 and 4 classes and the Maths teaching will be KS3 only.

St Mary’s is a great place to work and provides excellent job satisfaction, as it is a very supportive environment. We provide excellent CPD for NQTs and recently qualified teachers, as well as on-going training for more experienced teachers. There are opportunities for teachers at all levels to help develop teaching and learning across the school, working collaboratively with teachers from other departments, whether as coaches, researchers or SLEs. The working environment is, therefore, a very stimulating one for all staff and is an added attraction of this post

St Mary’s is a very popular and happy school, rated Outstanding by the Diocese and Ofsted. We became an academy in 2013 and enjoy outstanding facilities in a new building, which opened in 2011. We joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust in June 2020. We are also very popular with parents and are one of the most over-subscribed schools in the North-East. The roll has grown from around 1100 five years ago to over 1450 by September 2020, with 5 year groups of around 240. The Sixth Form currently has 250 students, but will grow to around 300 in the next couple of years, as larger and strongly academic year groups move into Sixth Form

In addition, we are a Teaching School, increasingly engaged in school to school support, initial teacher training and CPD and leadership development across the region. As a result, further opportunities for professional development are wide-ranging and an added attraction for potential new staff.

Leadership, teaching and the climate for learning in the Science and Maths departments are all outstanding, as they are across the whole school.

Above all, the Governors wish to appoint a teacher with:-
•A clear commitment to nurturing and promoting the school’s distinctive ethos
•A passion for providing the best possible holistic education for all students
•A commitment to maximising achievement through excellence in teaching and learning
•An excellent track record as a classroom teacher
•The ability to promote a love of learning Science and Maths in our students

Closing date: 9.00am on Friday 23rd April 2021. Interviews are likely to be held the following week.

The school is fully committed to safeguarding and the welfare of children and young people. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
