ASSISTANT HEAD OF FACULTY - MATHEMATICS Start date: Monday 19 April 2021 £MPS/UPS + TLR2B £4,780

Are you ready for a new challenge? We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, innovative leader who is looking to extend their leadership experience by taking on this critical role in our school community. The Maths, ICT & Business Studies Faculty at Langley School are an impressive group of highly skilled professionals who are united in their passion for their subject and their desire to enable our young people to achieve.

At Langley, we prioritise positive relationships between staff and students. Langley is an exciting place to learn and work. We are incredibly proud of the way our staff and young people work collaboratively to fulfil our school motto ‘to be the best we can be’.

The successful candidate will play a critical role in building upon the success of the Maths department, working alongside colleagues to enhance curriculum provision, deepening students’ learning and accelerating their progress. Langley is a wonderful place to work and learn in and as our recent Ofsted report suggests: 'Pupils are thoroughly prepared for life in modern Britain' at our school, where the holistic approach to child centred learning is valued as highly as the outcomes they eventually achieve at the end of their time with us.

Our school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community ‘to be the best that we can be’. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff and governors genuinely give all they can, to bring those principles to life every day. Examinations are critically important, of course, and our students achieve superbly well in them, but we truly believe in developing young people to deal with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests. Everyone who visits us comments on the special ethos of our school – ‘the Langley way’.

Please also note that in view of the current unpredictable situation 3 references will be required, at least 2 of which should be available prior to interview, elements of which might have to be conducted virtually.

What Matters to Us at Langley School How we work together:

• We share a clear sense of purpose, with students at the centre of all that we do and strive for

• We are committed to investing in positive relationships to enhance all that we do, respecting and valuing differences

• We make decisions with transparency and fairness, finding a route through the difficult rather than the easy

• We take a solutions-focussed approach, concentrating on what we can do

• We have a willingness to collaborate openly and honestly with each other and as part of wider networks, adopting and adapting good practice to fit the Langley context

• We are a compassionate community with a shared set of values and a love for our very special school Our approach with our young people:

• We encourage everyone to embody our school motto: ‘to be the best we can be’ in all that we do

• We see everyone’s potential as limitless

• We share the fundamental belief that a child’s past does not determine their future. Our mistakes do not define us

• We see learning as an exciting gateway to opportunity

• We value every individual for their skills, talent and identity, ensuring everyone in our community is enabled to thrive

• We never give up and we are committed to finding the right path for everyone

• We want our students to leave us as successful, good people, with a healthy sense of well-being and self-confidence and to be proud of themselves and our school.
