Salary: Main Scale / Upper Pay Scale

Join East Anglia’s “State Secondary School of the Year”
This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the UK’s leading comprehensive schools, recently ranked third nationally in the Sunday Times’ ParentPower publication for the second year running. Due to the continued expansion of the College, including our outstanding sixth form, we are looking to recruit a passionate and exceptional Teacher of PE. NQTs are welcome, and will be nurtured and developed with an exemplary support package.

Impington Village College has achieved consistently excellent outcomes for the last five years. With a truly comprehensive intake, student progress is regularly in the top 5% of all non-selective schools in the country. Student attainment is exceptionally high, with 15% of all grades at Grade 9, 43% at 7-9 (or equivalent) and 85% of grades at 4-9. We are also committed to the wider education of our students, with a timetabled enrichment programme for all ages as a core part of our curriculum. This year we also benefitted from a Turing Scheme grant which has seen more than 800 of our students embark on fully funded overseas trips. We are fiercely proud of our inclusive ethos, and in championing an environment in which every student is welcomed and valued.

The Sport faculty at IVC is a central part of the College and uptake at both KS4 and KS5 is very high, with very strong outcomes. The successful candidate, depending on their interest or specialism, will have the opportunity to teach across three different courses at KS4, including GCSE PE, BTEC Sport and OCR Sport Science, and BTEC Sport and IB Sport Science at KS5 in addition to our exciting core PE curriculum. We also have a thriving scholarship programme in our sixth form for Football (in partnership with Norwich FC), Rugby, Netball (in partnership with Serena Guthrie and Legacy Netball), Handball (in partnership with Cambridge Handball Club) and Rowing (in partnership with Rob Roy Rowing Club). As part of our sports scholarships, students benefit from expert coaching and bespoke training sessions, as well as the chance to compete at an elite level.

We are very lucky to have an on-site Sports Centre with excellent facilities, including a full-size indoor swimming pool, and a large expanse of outdoor sports pitches and green spaces.

You will be joining an innovative, collaborative and dynamic faculty where staff are highly committed to professional development and sporting excellence, engaging with the latest pedagogical research and to developing students' passions for sport and physical wellbeing. There will be numerous opportunities to continue developing your teaching practice, through connections a range of in-house and external CPD programmes. You will be well supported in the faculty by a number of highly experienced colleagues, and have the chance to lead extra-curricular activities based on your own sporting interests.

With your knowledge and passion for PE, you will have the opportunity to build upon the successful curriculum embedded at IVC and deliver a high quality learning experience to our inspirational students.

In return IVC and the Eastern Learning Alliance (ELA) can offer you:

• A reduced teaching load for all staff (maximum 40 hours per fortnight, the equivalent of at least one free period every day)
• Subject CPD timetabled into the College day as part of your timetabled allocation, avoiding weekly twilight sessions
• A minimum of one paid ‘family day’ per year to use as you choose, with the possibility of term time leave by negotiation
• £1000 bursary for personal CPD, including funding for a Masters qualification (or equivalent)
• A genuine commitment to wellbeing, with a strong track record in supporting positive mental health and high levels of staff retention and promotion (twice awarded the Carnegie Gold Medal)
• Subsidised access to our on-site Sports Centre and Swimming Pool, available for us throughout the day

Our Trust is committed to equal opportunities, to safeguarding and the promotion of the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. All staff are expected to share this commitment and undergo the appropriate checks. All positions within the Trust are subject to enhanced DBS checks and satisfactory references along with a Certificate of Good Conduct if applicable. Only applications submitted on using the ELA application form will be accepted. We do not accept applications by CV.
