Teacher of Physical Education

Job Description

St Catherine’s is a school very proud of its happy atmosphere, excellent pastoral care and strong academic reputation. Our School Mission captures the spirit of our happy and inclusive community, and all staff support and nurture school ethos.

We seek an experienced and enthusiastic person to join our successful PE Department. S/he will teach across the School, though individual strengths and preferences are taken into account, and share responsibility for fixtures, Inter-House competitions and practices. Experience with netball, trampolining, swimming and Academic PE are all desirable; the ability to offer a wide range of sports and skills would also be an advantage.

Applications will also be welcome from those seeking part time work and/or who have another specialism to offer. It is not a requirement for the post holder to necessarily have experience in both Prep and Senior PE teaching and coaching.

Our school has very good sports facilities which include a heated indoor swimming pool, outside tennis and netball courts, and a playing field. The large School Hall is marked for netball, basketball and badminton. The Department also has access to local facilities, including at St Mary’s University.

All girls are encouraged to participate in Inter House sports competitions. Pupils also regularly qualify for regional and national school finals and compete in ISA, Middlesex and Richmond Borough Championships. Recent successes include national awards for Gymnastic Acrobatics and swimming, pupils selected for GB rowing training programmes, and significant achievements in football and cross-country.

The person appointed will be expected to play a full and positive part in the life of the school. Therefore an ability and willingness to become involved in, and contribute to, the extra-curricular life of the school is expected. Applicants are asked to state their specific preferences and strengths regarding the wide range of co-curricular activities.

If you feel you have the experience, enthusiasm and commitment necessary for this post, then we would be delighted to receive an application from you. Please note that only applications on the School’s application form will be considered. It is not necessary to send a separate CV nor to complete an application in the TES format.

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. The successful applicant will be subject to a number of safer recruitment checks including an enhanced DBS, Barred List and online and social media checks as part of Keeping Children Safe in Education and, once in post, receive further training and updates. This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received so early application is recommended and the school reserves the right to begin the recruitment process prior to the closing date.

Closing date for applications: Monday 22 April 2024, 9am.
Interviews will be held from Wednesday 24 April 2024.

Please return your application via email to recruitment@stcatherineschool.co.uk
