I am looking for a school where I can join and lead where appropriate a thriving department and bring my extensive knowledge and experience to the role to be the inspiration and motivation in developing a rich varied programme of PE and school sport. My excellent organisational skills and ability to develop and foster good working relationships with staff and students would enable me to lead others and be an integral part of the wider school community. I have been planning and delivering PE from Nursery to Y6 at a range of schools in Brighton, London and Malaysia and I would be able to bring new and innovative ideas to further develop the curriculum and department. I have developed new teaching plans, assessment opportunities, progress trackers, inclusive clubs and many displays and newsletters to celebrate and inspire students' performance. Planning the extra curricular clubs and competition schedule has always been part of my job and I relish the opportunity to work with colleagues in other schools to provide a range of opportunities for the students. This is how many students improve their confidence and competence in sports and activities and also develop skills for life.. I have organised fixture calendars across my schools and planned and hosted numerous events including, inter-house competitions, sports days, festivals, young leader training and many staff training and professional development sessions. At Nexus I had the opportunity to work in a larger department where I was able to take the lead and also work independently to build the primary department. This was an excellent experience for me and has allowed me the opportunity to learn from colleagues as well as lead training and new initiatives within the department and across the school. While in Brighton I was the lead teacher for Primary PE across the city and organised and led both sport specific and PE curriculum development training for new and experienced teachers. Trainee teachers from the university were often sent on placement to observe and discuss the way in which I had written and delivered the PE curriculum and also how my school used PE to impact other areas of the children’s learning.
