Job Specific Description

La Moye School are seeking to recruit a passionate, skilled, aspirational and experienced teacher with a specialism in PE to join our team from January 2025. 

A supplementary allowance may be available for a candidate with suitable experience and expertise.

The role will involve leading PE and leading our Extra Curricular sports provision.  The school is piloting a CPD Curriculum for all staff, and this role forms a key part of this as the post holder will teach PE to children across Key Stages 1 and 2.  The post holder will also provide several clubs in a range of sports disciplines, such as football and cross country, as well as organising sporting events that the school takes part in.  Within their week, the post holder will also cover other teachers, for example, providing PPA or leadership time, and from time to time may cover classes in the event of teacher absence.  Certainly whilst the CPD Curriculum pilot is running, and subject to school need, the post holder will not have overall responsibility for a class.  In future it is possible, depending on the outcome of the CPD pilot and the future needs of the school, that the post holder will have a class responsibility.  


La Moye School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to share the commitment.  We also believe every person matters and this is part of our culture, as described by our Core Values.  We strive to be a supportive, honest and respectful community, where staff feel valued and can be successful.
