We are looking for someone who can teach
female PE. In KS3, all pupils have 3 hours of PE a fortnight. Each band of 90
children has 3 groups: 1 x Male PE, 1 x Female PE and 1 x Mixed PE. At KS4, in
addition to two Sports Studies groups (mixed gender), all pupils have a core
offer of 4 hours per fortnight. I think this makes us quite unusual and we
protect this time – it is not used for revision, for additional study and all
pupils participate. We are partners with Manchester City in the Community who
work with us 3 days a week and are currently working with their coaches on
developing our girls’ football team. We believe healthy lifestyles impact
positively on physical and mental wellbeing and this is why we invest in the core
offer and the specialist pathways.
If you visit the school, I would hope
you would notice the warm, welcoming environment; the excellent behaviour of
the children; strong staff morale; a commitment to professional development of
all staff; and a strong sense that this is a place where learning is valued.
We have been very proud during Covid to
continue moving forward and we made some deliberate choices that enabled us to
do this. We have developed our community wing of the school and are working
closely with our charitable and voluntary organisations on social action and
social justice projects. We believe in the beauty of civil society: of schools
and community partners working together, ultimately benefiting the wellbeing
and agency of communities. We would hope the successful applicant to
participate in these opportunities.
We do work hard at the school but
teacher’s timetables are generous and we do not have a culture of “meeting for
meeting’s sake.” We are sensible with workload and expectations and are not
afraid to stop if what we are doing is not having an impact on compelling
As with any organisation, we do not get
it right all of the time – but we make sure that we work in a non-judgemental
environment and we focus our actions have to be for the benefit of the
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will undergo an enhanced DBS check, checks of references and employment history.
