Maths Raising Aspirations Lead 

Required September 24

MPS/UPS (+ TLR2.1 £3,214)


Burton Borough is a vibrant and inclusive mixed school of 1160 students, situated on the Shropshire / Staffordshire border within the pleasant market town of Newport.  Our location provides easy access to and from Shrewsbury, Stafford, Telford and Wolverhampton. 

Burton Borough is in a very exciting point in its development having joined the Learning Community Trust on the 1st April 2024. We are proud to be a part of this growing Trust, which offers the successful candidate a collegiate environment within a research-informed community of professionals. 

The school sits at the heart of the Newport community and aims to ensure that the skills, talents and attributes of all our young people are fostered so they flourish within a caring environment that has high aspirations for all.  We believe that all students in our community have the right to the highest standard of education and see ourselves as having a privileged role in ensuring the young people of Newport prosper. 

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS enhanced clearance for the school. 

At Burton Borough we hold the core belief that teaching practice based on an up-to-date, and deep understanding of relevant evidence is a hallmark of a high-quality education system, and crucial for students’ learning outcomes. We are therefore looking for a maths raising attainment lead who can inspire our maths teachers to continue to drive standards of teaching and learning in the classroom through instilling a culture where, “Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.” (Wiliam)

This role is perfect for someone who shares our Trust's vision that every young person in our care has the right to an exceptional education. We are dedicated to exposing our students to a coherently planned ambitious curriculum, that values maths knowledge so that our young people become exemplary mathematicians.

Our focus is on having a classroom culture where high expectations that are underpinned by positive relationships, mutual respect and clear routines, allow our teachers to deliver high quality teaching and our students to enjoy and achieve within their learning. 

We offer: 

  • A professional learning culture that values the iterative process of teacher development. 
  • Clear talent pathways for all professionals within our Trust. 
  • A strong pastoral community in which every child is valued, celebrated and nurtured to be their best selves. 
  • A school that develops young people’s character through a comprehensive personal development offer.
