At Witton Park, our guiding principles are simple yet powerful:
- Children come first and are at the heart of all we do
- Positive relationships underpin all of our work
- High expectations and no barriers – everybody can achieve.
If our principles resonate with you, and you are seeking a new challenge, we’d be delighted to receive your application for the vacancy that has arisen in our highly successful PE department.
This role requires an energetic and dedicated practitioner, who can make a significant contribution to our school community by engaging, enthusing and challenging staff and students to achieve their very best in the subject. You will have excellent subject knowledge and be well-informed on current educational developments and initiatives.
You would be joining a team of colleagues who are passionate about ensuring that all pupils enjoy the subject and are focused on securing the best outcomes for our students. We work collaboratively to share good practice, both within the department and across the school as a whole. Being a BSF and Google accredited school, we are very well-resourced with Promethean whiteboards and Chromebooks, with lessons being taught in modern, spacious classrooms. PE facilities are first class.
We are looking for someone who can continue the great results already achieved by the hard work and dedication of pupils and staff in this department. The school has strong outcomes at GCSE PE and OCR Nationals. Work within the department is enhanced by two people who have current examiner experience with AQA. The programme of study is strong within core PE. Staff in PE also run many extra curricular teams and lunchtime clubs. These are well attended.
If you are interested in joining our friendly and forward-thinking team, and you have the skills and qualities required, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
Please take the time to view our new website prior to applying.
