Date posted:
Start date: 28 August 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: We have our own competitive salary scale
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are looking to appoint a Teacher of PE & Girls’ Games for Advent 2019.  This post could suit either an experienced teacher, someone seeking NQT status (full induction programme in place) or possibly an aspiring teacher wanting to enter the profession (full training and induction programme in place).

The ideal candidate will be someone who can demonstrate excellence in the classroom, contribute fully to the co-curricular programme and inspire pupils and staff alike.  We are seeking someone who is committed, dynamic and well-qualified and who will:

• teach co-educationally across the age groups and all areas of the curriculum;

• take responsibility for co-curricular clubs / teams throughout the year, after school, at the weekend and on occasions during the holidays;

• work collaboratively with all members of the department to continue to develop our thriving and successful co-curricular sporting programme;

• where time allows, contribute and participate in the wider (non-sporting) school programme of co-curricular activities;

• promote and protect children’s welfare in all aspects of their contribution to school life and follow Health and Safety guidelines.

Given the significant refurbishment of both the Hockey and Netball facilities in recent years, the levels of engagement in these sports across the school, and the significant recent achievements, applications from candidates with a background in teaching Netball or Hockey, as well as experience of teaching a broad curriculum would be welcome. During the Trinity term Tennis, Cricket and Athletics are core activities, so interest and experience in these sports would also be welcome.

There may be an opportunity for the successful candidate to take responsibility for one or more aspects of the Co-curriculum.

Alleyn’s has its own competitive salary scale and accommodation may be available.
