What skills and experience we're looking for

Required for September 2024 - Full time, Permanent

Do you enjoy working with children? Do you have a passion for PE, sports, fitness and well-being? Do you have the skills to support their learning and development? Have you got a ‘can-do’ approach and outlook? At Civitas Academy, we are looking for a PE Teacher who will take the lead in delivering PE sessions across the academy and supporting staff development, as well as providing enrichment and extra-curricular activities to our children.

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

Our PE Teacher 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 Civitas.

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.

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
  • 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

In return we can offer:

  • A firm 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
  • Coaching and mentoring from the trust and school leaders
  • Fantastic trust wide CPD opportunities
  • Vast opportunities for career progression

If you have a genuine commitment to improving the life chances of children then we would like to hear from YOU!
