Inner London Pay Scale inclusive of Upper Pay Scale

From September 2021 up to three terms (minimum of two)

Sacred Heart High School (described by Ofsted in 2017 as ‘exceptional’) is one of the top 100 non-selective state funded schools in England based on our current GCSE results with 92% gaining 5+ standard passes including English and Maths.  The school’s A-Level results, following the opening of a Sixth Form in September 2013, are just as outstanding with 58% achieving A*-B.  Our school also leads the successful West London Teaching School Alliance.

An exciting opportunity has arisen at the school and we wish to appoint a full-time Teacher of PE (Maternity Cover). The candidate must be an outstanding, focused and motivated individual who can lead the pupils to achieve far beyond their own expectations. The successful candidate must have passion for their subject and a desire to develop this in others. They must be eager to advance their own teaching skills and develop professionally as well as being keen to share ideas with their colleagues within this dedicated team. A willingness to contribute more widely to the extra-curricular life of the school is expected.

PE is an extremely popular subject within the school, there are two full time teachers within the department, one of whom is the Head of PE. You will inspire pupils to learn every day and support other teachers and leaders in this area to produce the best possible lessons and activities that engage and challenge every pupil, including offering enrichment to enhance and deepen subject knowledge

SHHS wishes to restrict the post of Teacher of PE at Sacred Heart High School to a woman using the GOQ 7(2)(b) of the SDA.

Sacred Heart High School is an 11-18 all girls’ secondary Academy in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham.   This post will require the Teacher of PE to fully supervise pupils at all times which will include sole supervision of changing room areas.

The closing date for applications is Monday, 24th May, with interviews scheduled shortly after.

SHHS is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service certificate will be requested for the successful candidate in accordance with Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education legislation.
