We are looking for an outstanding Teacher of Boys PE to enhance our strong reputation for school sport. We are already recognised as one of the leading PE departments in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea for both participation and success in school sport. Our Academy is outstanding and we have invested significantly in our sporting facilities over time with a brand new 4G MUGA a fitness suite, smaller MUGA, large sports hall and an activity studio with a full size climbing wall. We also use a number of facilities locally off-site, including grass pitches, swimming pool and a newly renovated astro turf. We have representations from Kick London and a Chelsea FC (Chelsea Champion) employed full time who support in the development of PE and also use sport as a medium to support students across the Academy. As a result we offer opportunities that are suitable for all of our students to develop a passion and aptitude for PE and sport. We also currently offer GCSE PE and A Level courses for those students that are interested in PE academically and want to study it further.
Applications from NQTs are warmly welcome.
In particular, candidates should have:
- QTS with an excellent track record or the potential to secure excellent student outcomes in GCSE and A Level Physical Education examinations.
- The ability to inspire and motivate students to take part in sport at all levels as a talented, dynamic and ambitious teacher.
- High expectations of students’ learning, achievement and behaviour.
- A clear understanding of the latest curriculum and pedagogical developments in physical education.
- The ability to assist in the planning and delivery of a diverse PE curriculum and extended curriculum offer that allows for innovative learning and teaching, regular assessment of student progress and enrichment opportunities outside of lessons.
- A passion and commitment to develop our students through the academy’s extensive extended curriculum beyond the Academy day.
We are currently graded outstanding by Ofsted and SIAMS, a World Class School and are a member of the Leading Edge network. In the summer we achieved our best ever GCSE and A level results in terms of both progress (top 10% nationally) and attainment. However, we are much more than a successful, academically focused school. We believe in educating the whole child and our Christian values of joy, perseverance, servant leadership, charity and forgiveness underpin everything we stand for. It is important that all of our staff, whether they are teachers or not, work closely with our young people and ensure that they are successful in all that they do.
Chelsea Academy is a great place to work (we are one of the few schools in the country with Investors in People Gold), our staff are friendly and supportive and we offer a whole range of professional development opportunities no matter what stage you are at in your career. We want all of our teachers to be outstanding and so offer unrivaled professional development and support. This includes a CPD session every week (including opportunities to regularly visit other schools for newly qualified teachers) and a thriving in house Lead Practitioner team that coach and support staff across the Academy. Through the Chelsea Academy Way for Learning we have a simple, flexible and consistent way of developing outstanding teaching. We offer internal and external training through NPQML, NPQSL and Teaching Leaders. Academy staff have access to a wide range of benefits these include a private healthcare package, 24 hour GP service, physiotherapy and a confidential well-being support line as well as a laptop and free lunch.
We are a diverse inner city, science specialist academy based just off the King’s Road in Chelsea and are co-sponsored by both the London Diocesan Board for Schools and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. As a Church of England sponsored academy we welcome staff, students and parents from all faiths but expect all employees to have regard for our Christian values that are demonstrated through the taught and non-taught curriculum.
Sorry but we do not accept CV’s. Application deadline is Monday 23rd April 2018 at 12:00 pm. Interviews will take place on Friday 27th April 2018.
