What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an inspirational, ambitious and talented PE & Sports Coach to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team.

Our PE & Sports Coach has a dual role; firstly, to provide high-quality PE and professional development to our teaching staff, and additionally take a lead on providing enrichment and games during the break and lunchtime to contribute towards the overall sports provision. The role will also involve taking responsibility for the organisation of school games, competitions and sports events locally within the sports partnership. This is a role which requires a great deal of initiative, to use time effectively to maximise opportunities to have an impact on pupils’ physical well-being – through lessons, through breaks and lunches, and through clubs and the sports partnership. The appointed candidate will be excited to take the lead in each of these aspects and drive PE & Sports at Green Ridge so that we continue to develop our renound reputation for our sporting achievements.

You will be part of the PE leadership across the school, taking responsibility for the majority of lessons planned and taught, and providing development for teachers in delivering their own lessons. This will be a flexible role which could be working with all children across the academy, from Early Years to Key Stage 2. The role also includes leading provision and enrichment during break and lunchtimes.

What we’re looking for:

You could be a school-leaver, interested in studying PE at university, wishing to train as a PE teacher or sports coach and want experience within an educational setting before you apply for further studies. You could be a qualified sports coach/teacher, and wish to make your mark on your own setting, establishing a curriculum and provision from scratch. For us, the most important thing you will bring is your passion for your sports and your ability to coach and teach young children in PE; the qualifications associated with this can be gained on the job as with the experience, but the ability to communicate effectively with young children and teach PE is of paramount importance.

The successful candidate will have:

  • The motivation and passion to achieve the very best for the children within PE and sports
  • A good understanding or awareness of the Early Years Foundation Stage and/or a good understanding of the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 curriculum for PE
  • A good understanding of the range of additional needs that pupils can have and how best to support them within PE and sports
  • The ability to work independently as well as part of a wider team
  • The ability to work on initiative
  • A ‘can-do’ approach to all aspects of academy life
  • A willingness to undertake professional development and grow their skills
  • Excellent communication skills and a good sense of humour

What the school offers its staff

  • A commitment to you and your professional development
  • Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and Governors
  • A growing learning community
  • Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference
  • A wide range of professional development opportunities and the opportunity to work with some of the best educational professionals in the country,
  • A great ECT experience,
  • Membership of the Teacher’s Pension Scheme TPS,
  • As part of REAch2 employee benefits we also offer an eye care scheme, access to an Employee Assistance Programme for you and your immediate family and membership of ‘perks at work’ – which includes discounts on holidays, shopping, family days out and much more.
