We are looking for a part-time Lead Games Teacher, working in our primary and secondary schools. There may be additional ways to contribute to other areas of school life, including our after- school activity programme, and further suitable opportunities should they arise, for which renumeration may be available

The successful candidate will be an excellent practitioner, flexible, and servant-hearted.  The candidate will be able to build upon the successes of the past, maintaining the distinctive quality and tone of the school, and will be able to work as part of a strong staff team in line with the vision of Oxfordshire Community Churches. It is therefore a genuine and determining occupational requirement that the job-holder must be a committed Christian willing to work with others in the context of OCC’s ethos statement.

Expected Roles

  • To deliver and develop the Games programme to Primary and Secondary pupils
  • To develop pupils’ sportsmanship skills, performance and abilities in a range of individual and team sports
  • To maintain a high standard of pupil behaviour and involvement in Games
  • To report to parents on pupil attitude to Games, achievement and progress twice a year
  • To liaise with partner schools in organising extra-curricular sports’ fixtures
  • To organise and oversee annual primary and secondary sports days
  • To maintain Games equipment


It is desirable for the successful applicant to hold a D1 (minibus) driving qualification, although this is not essential. You will be required to attend first aid training every three years.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo appropriate checks, including DBS checks.

If you have a disability and require any reasonable adjustments that will enable you to apply for this position, then please let us know.
