Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
Rawlins is a good school with an outstanding sixth form
Part Time Female Teacher of PE (temporary maternity cover)
From: 4 October 2021 (Monday, Thursday & Friday) - Until 27 May 2022
Rawlins Academy is seeking to appoint an innovative and enthusiastic Teacher of Physical Education to join our fantastic team and flourishing Academy. Our ideal candidate will have both a love for the subject and a passion for teaching so that our pupils thrive.
This is an excellent opportunity to join one of Leicestershire’s largest schools with currently over 1500 on roll including more than 300 in the Sixth Form. We are an inclusive school having an ASD and a Moderate Learning Difficulties specialist unit on site alongside our school’s SEND support base and Success Centre. Pupils who attend these units are an integrated part of our school community and taught within the school by mainstream staff.
The PE Department is a mix of both experienced and more recently qualified staff and has a number of outstanding individuals who regularly share their expertise. The Department works collaboratively, and so successful applicants will be expected to contribute to the team to support the continual drive for improvement. The combination of teamwork, an outward looking approach and a willingness to reflect internally upon best practice, has resulted in outstanding results across a range of qualifications at both GCSE and A Level. Staff participate fully within the department supporting and offering further opportunities to pupils across our extensive extra-curricular programme. An ability to offer netball, dance, gymnastics, fitness or rounders’ would be of benefit to this maternity cover.
There is a strong sense of community in the school, the village of Quorn and the surrounding areas with a committed parent support base. Teamwork is therefore a key feature of school life.
We aim to inspire our pupils to find their talents and their passions through a broad and balanced curriculum; to be curious about learning; to relish a challenge and to have both confidence and resilience. Applications are therefore welcomed from well-qualified, inspiring, flexible, passionate and highly motivated individuals who are keen to work with remarkable young people providing an exceptional education for all. NQT and RQT applicants will be supported through our internal development programme and links with external Training providers.
Our core purpose is summed up in our vision:
Developing Trust | Inspiring Hope | Building Success | Shaping the Future
Through our values: Compassion, Wisdom and Endurance
And via our motto: Act wisely and make the most of every opportunity
We do hope you will take the time to apply. This is a marvellous place to work and it is a very exciting opportunity. We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Closing date: Monday, 27 September 2021 at 9:00am
Interviews are expected to be held on: w/c 27 September 2021
