Montgomery Primary School serves a diverse catchment in the centre of Exeter in a modern, eco-friendly building with fantastic children and happy, motivated staff. We are looking to appoint a sports coach/HLTA to teach PE lessons and extra-curricular sports clubs to pupils across Key Stages 1 & 2. You will be able to demonstrate an enthusiastic, flexible and committed approach and be able to inspire the next generation through physical activity.

The contract is to cover maternity leave and, therefore, will be fixed term until March 2023 in the first instance.

In this role, you will be teaching pupils from EYFS to Year 6 (4 to 11 years of age) across a wide range of sports / physical activities, including planning, preparing and delivering PE lessons both indoors and outdoors and completing the PE assessments for the children. The role will also involve delivering a range of extra-curricular sports clubs (both before and after school) and supporting the school’s attendance and participation in a range of sports events and local competitions. You will also be expected to lead and supervise lunchtime play. Although you will be working under the supervision of our specialist PE co-ordinator, you will take sole responsibility for whole classes of pupils and therefore will need to have strong behaviour management, a good working knowledge of safeguarding and a commitment to keeping all children safe.

• Experience of working with primary age children within a school/education setting;
• Qualifications - Minimum level 2 NGB coaching awards/certificates in a range of sports OR hold an AfPE level 3 or 5 qualification in supporting/delivering PE in primary schools OR an Honours degree in physical education/coaching or equivalent OR hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) or a relevant Higher Level Teaching Assistant qualification.
