The Trust also recognises the importance of equipping every child to lead a healthy, active lifestyle; this starts at primary school.

• Create and deliver a high quality primary school physical education programme at St James’ to engage all students with a wide range of sporting activities.
• Develop and deliver an inter-school competition programme at St James’, providing opportunities that include all key stage 2 pupils in competitive sport.
The ideal candidate will have a UKCC Level 2 qualification or above, experience of coaching rugby league and/or football, particularly with young people. They will be a flexible team player passionate about education and sports and have strong behaviour management skills with a creative approach to teaching and engaging young people in sports.
