What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for someone who can teach female PE

What the school offers its staff

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.

The team is cohesive and supportive and we are very fortunate that the friendly atmosphere impacts positively on our pupils.

Commitment to safeguarding

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.

Falinge Park High School is a large, over-subscribed, multicultural, inclusive comprehensive in Rochdale. There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the school and a positive ethos amongst the staff. We have created a culture which supports each other at every level rather than a tick-box approach to success.

Our core purpose is to secure the best academic and personal outcomes for all pupils and instil a life-long love of learning. This will ensure that all learners believe in themselves and their future, have choices and the power to make them and are able to contribute positively to society.

Empowering all to: ASPIRE, THRIVE, AND ACHIEVE

The Governors of Falinge Park High School have determined that the school should join the Watergrove Trust, a Rochdale-based multi-academy trust which aligns very positively with the Falinge Park values and mission. We hope to join the Watergrove community of two secondary and five primary schools in the Autumn term of 2024.

Watergrove is a part centralised trust which shares core processes but also honours the individual character of all its schools, so whilst benefiting from the collaborative opportunities of being in a trust, you will also be firmly part of the Falinge Park family
