What skills and experience we're looking for

An excellent opportunity for a suitably qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Physical Education for boys, to teach within our Performance Studies Faculty on a full-time basis, from September 2024.

Teaching will be up to GCSE level within this strong and successful Faculty. Ability to teach a second subject would be advantageous.

We are looking for someone to contribute to the work of a team who is successful in fostering each student’s interest, ability and confidence in Physical Education.

What the school offers its staff

We are all very proud of the transformations that we have made in our school. Our last Ofsted inspection in July 2023 secured ‘Good’ grades across the board. We were praised for being a ‘caring, inclusive school’, with ‘high expectations’, ‘warm and respectful relationships… between students and staff’, an ‘ambitious’ curriculum and ‘staff reported they are proud of their school’ and ‘are given opportunities to develop as professionals’. They also report that ‘leaders manage staff workload well.’

Our students are lovely which explains why so many staff have worked in the school for such a long time! Because we have clear and effective behaviour systems, which centre around building healthy personal relationships, students know what is expected of them. They want to do well; they participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and they get on well with their teachers. Supply teachers frequently say Ridgewood is one of the nicest schools they visit.

At every level, school leaders are visible, dynamic and supportive. We are proud that our leaders have been working effectively across Stour Vale Academy Trust, training new teachers and collaborating on improvement projects. A number of Ridgewood staff have secured promotions this year and last year, showing that our leadership development is strong.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All necessary safeguarding checks will be undertaken and must have satisfactory outcomes, otherwise a conditional job offer may be withdrawn. Details of the checks undertaken can be found in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2023.

This role has been assessed as working in regulated activity and is subject to an Enhanced DBS plus Children’s Barred List Check. It is an offence to apply for this role if you are barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.
