Both curricular Physical Education and extra-curricular sports are highly popular, taught by experienced teachers and specialist coaches. Our pupils are outstanding achievers, regularly competing at regional and national levels. We offer a wide variety of sports, with Netball and Hockey being our largest, having gone from strength to strength over recent years.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate, experienced and well-qualified netball specialist to join our large and thriving PE department as a highly motivated all-rounder in the role of Acting Head of Netball. Whilst a specialism in Netball is essential, the appointed candidate must also be able to teach and coach a wide variety of sports.
The successful applicant will also be required to commit fully to the School’s extensive extra-curricular programme, which offers a vast range of activities.
This is a temporary fixed purpose maternity cover contract commencing on 19 February 2024 and ending the working day before the permanent post-holder returns.
The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.
Accommodation may be available for new staff in a local six-unit property.
Fully completed application forms must be returned to email@example.com as soon as possible. Please note that applications must be made on the school’s application form. CVs alone will not be accepted.
There is no closing date for this vacancy.
Applications will be considered on receipt and interviews may occur at any stage.
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.
Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The School may carry out online searches on shortlisted applicants and all applicants will be required to provide details of their online profile, including social media accounts, as part of their application.
All staff working in the School during the school day will have contact with children and will therefore be in regulated activity. As a teaching member of staff you will be working directly with, and be responsible for, the children that you teach. You are also likely to have contact with other pupils on a regular basis which may include specific pastoral or other responsibilities for pupils whom you do not teach.
The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions on a self-declaration form in advance of attending an interview (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.”
