A criminal record check didn't even cross my mind. Tho getting a disclosure Scotland takes no time at all as many jobs across here ask for them.
Sure, it will be a lot easier to get one while you're there.
It's worth noting that only the better schools have any decent sports facilities or any PE trainers.
There are various private sports training outfits around town too,
so you don't need to restrict yourself to schools.

Yeah ill get a copy sent out.
Yeah i was reading into that a couple days ago, seems to be the better off schools that have the facilities or money to provide better sports facilities.
Interesting note about the sports training outfits tho, that's not something i have come across as yet, but will be sure to look into it. In all honesty it seems to be fairly easy to get a job teaching English to get my feet on the ground and see what else there is to offer. I do enjoy teaching and would be happy to teach most subjects, just lack of experience tho. If there are opportunities out there to teach sports that would be my main goal.. tho being Scottish we suffer greatly from that big burning ball of gas in the sky called the sun and the heat hah.

Teaching English Vs PE Teacher = $1200/mo Vs $3000/mo ( + paid holidays, etc.)

Wow. That's quite an increase.. id never really looked into PE teaching in Cambodia.
To be honest i had never come across any information about it or any jobs, clearly focused on the Teaching English side of things. This is why its always good to ask questions to people with more knowledge.
Would definitely be something id be interested in and something i would look at in the future. Tho i think working in a school and learning the in's and out's of the education system would not only give me some good experience in the country but a better understanding how things are run.
