What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a Sports Instructor to join our teaching team. The role involves teaching PE across the school following our agreed scheme of work and running a varied extra-curricular programme. We can offer enthusiastic children who love to learn and to play games. You will need to have experience of coaching and understand how to teach a sequence of lessons developing the children’s skills.

We are looking for:

  • an inspiring instructor with a passion for primary education
  • a high expectation for teaching and learning
  • delivery of high quality lessons that engage and challenge pupils
  • an instructor who is highly motivated
  • At Unity Schools Partnership our objective is to smash through barriers to make remarkable change happen. We pride ourselves on being an educational organisation that puts children first, going the extra mile for the vulnerable and disadvantaged, and every one of us has an impact on unlocking our pupils’ potential. We are committed to providing a working environment where our employees can grow and thrive. We value collaboration, wellbeing, diversity, equality and work-life balance. Throughout our diverse family of schools and within our vibrant central hub we nurture talent, whether you are at the beginning of your career or looking to grow your expertise.

    Unity Schools Partnership is made up of a family of 35 schools located on the Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire borders, as well as Romford in East London. The Trust expects its work to be characterised by ethical leadership, an ambition for improvement at pace and the expectation that remarkable improvements can be achieved. We refer to ourselves as a family because, throughout the trust, we foster a supportive and collaborative relationship, whilst recognising, and celebrating that, we are all different and have our own contextual characteristics. Sharing the same values and facing similar issues not only enables us to support each other, but to challenge each other too. This interdependence allows each of our schools to flourish and grow; providing stimulating, nurturing yet self-challenging environments in which our pupils and staff members can thrive.

    Unity Schools Partnership has created a subsidiary trading company Unity Schools Partnership Education. Having a separate legal entity that is free to trade independently with other commercial organisations as well as schools, gives scope and opportunities for greater impact and reach within the wider sphere of education. In return, income is invested into our trust to improve educational outcomes for the children in our schools. By working with Unity Schools Partnership, you may have the opportunity to work on a commission basis beyond a standard career in education and develop some ideas of your own.

It is important to belong at work and the work you do is relied upon by our pupils, so even small positive differences which are made, make people very happy. We want to ensure you have a good work life balance and one of the ways we achieve this is by having a two-week autumn half term break.

What the school offers its staff

In return we will offer:

  • Job satisfaction through making a positive impact on our student’s lives
  • Friendly and supportive working environment
  • Supportive and positive management
  • Investment in your training and development
  • Excellent career development opportunities in our school and across the trust including secondments to other trust schools
  • Evidence informed research opportunities via our Research School and programmes to reduce teacher workload including the development of the CUSP curriculum and other programmes the staff within our schools benefit from
  • Wellbeing support service
  • Trust wide professional development and wellbeing day for all staff

Commitment to safeguarding

Unity Schools Partnership is committed to safer recruitment, equal opportunities, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be required.
