Teacher of Girls’ PE
Full-time – from February Half-Term 2021
Temporary – to cover maternity leave
Closing date: 9am 1st December 2020
The Directors of Uffculme Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a temporary Teacher of Girls’ PE to join our Outstanding School starting after the February Half-Term holiday in the Spring Term 2021. This vacancy would be particularly suitable for NQTs but more experienced teachers are also welcome to apply.
Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing Academy located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional centres of Taunton and Exeter. The February 2014 Ofsted inspection classed the Academy as ‘outstanding’. Uffculme is fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. In recent years our Progress 8 score has exceeded 0.7 with the disadvantaged achieving 0.3 or higher, maintaining our track-record as being one of the highest performing non-selective schools in the country. Consequently we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times in recognition of the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme.
Within this context, PE is one of the flagship departments – consistently achieving higher a Progress 8 score of around +2.00
Whilst our examination results speak for themselves they don’t tell the whole story. They are based on a culture of high expectations; exceptional levels of student participation and active involvement in the life of the school; and great relationships between staff and students. We make no apologies for wanting it all as a school: happy staff; happy students; outstanding results; amazing opportunities; and a culture which values success in all its forms.
The successful candidate will be, or have the potential to be an outstanding teacher who inspires a love of sport and physical activity, and who can deliver the exceptional results which we have come to expect from our students. A full contribution to the extensive extra-curricular programme will be expected. We can offer you support from an excellent team of colleagues, the use of fantastic facilities and young people who genuinely want to learn.
If this sounds like the sort of school you would like to be a part of, and you are, or have the potential to be an outstanding teacher who will inspire a keen interest in PE amongst your students, then please get in touch to find out more. For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Miss Carla Dunnett, Head of PE - see attached advert for contact details.
