We are pleased to be recruiting a new member of our Cover Supervisor team.  The successful candidate will actively engage pupils in Teaching & Learning and supervise students in the absence of a teacher. As a member of the Cover Team, we also like our supervisors to provide a range of cover for different personnel across the school. These additional cover responsibilities are tailored to meet a candidate’s experience and interests. An interest in after school extracurricular activity would be welcome.  Although this is a permanent role, we would consider applicants for a fixed term contact if they wish to use this role as a stepping stone into another role such as teaching or teacher training.

The ability to build and develop good relationships and be a positive role model, raising aspirations, is essential.  Good administrative and general IT skills would be a significant advantage.

St. Paul's is a thriving and successful Catholic school with an excellent reputation. Our commitment to excellent teaching and learning can be demonstrated through bespoke CPD opportunities and through the management of a growing and successful training school.  All staff members are committed to the care and success of pupils and working in a setting where values of forgiveness, concern for others and respect are shared as the core values of St. Paul’s regardless of faith.

For further details and an application form please visit the school website www.st-pauls.org.uk, e-mail enquiries@st-pauls.org.uk or call 01908 669735
