Teacher of PE (Dance to Key Stage 3 desirable) job summary

Reading Girls’ School is a dynamic and welcoming community, serving the educational needs of girls from the ages of 11 to 16 from a diverse local community.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and influential Teacher of PE who will inspire and provide excellent outcomes for students, working alongside talented and highly motivated colleagues.

Reading Girls’ School is a partially selective girls’ school in south Reading. It is ‘performing in the top 1% of all schools nationally’ (Department for Education, November 2019) and was graded with an overall effectiveness of ‘GOOD’ with ‘OUTSTANDING’ features by Ofsted in November 2021. A focus on excellent Teaching and Learning is the driving force behind our success.

Our students are polite and thoughtful individuals who play an active role in shaping and leading the school, through the Senior Student Leadership Team.

Our aim is a very clear one: to provide the best possible life-chances for every student. To that end, we challenge our students to the very edge of their academic capabilities whilst providing wrap-around support towards those goals.

We are part of the successful Thames Learning Trust. In October 2016, we moved into our new school building which has provided us with a 21st century learning environment.

We are committed to staff continuous professional development (CPD). Ofsted (November 2021) highlighted that “Leaders consistently prioritise the professional development of their staff. This includes a focus on making sure teachers have the most up-to-date and relevant specialist knowledge in their subject areas.”

If you believe that you are the right person for this role, we look forward to hearing from you.

We also have a forward-thinking Employee Assistance Programme, a Medical Cash Plan, Wider Wallet benefits hub, eyecare vouchers,no lesson cover and generous non-teaching time allocation. As we are close to the centre of Reading, travel connections are first-rate, with the M4 and M3 within easy reach, as well as the mainline rail station (with fast connections to London).

Applications will be considered as they are received.

The Thames Learning Trust is committed to the highest standards of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A Disclosure and Barring Service Certificate will be required for all posts which will be subject to enhanced checks.

The Trust embraces diversity and promotes equality of opportunity. We wish to further develop a diverse community and encourage applications from all sections of society.
