Sawston Village College is a very successful school and part of Anglian Learning, a high-performing multi-academy trust responsible for 15 schools in West Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex, educating over 8000 pupils and employing more than 1000 staff. 

Our vision is for dynamic, empowered learners who thrive and lead in their communities: locally, nationally, and globally.  Our schools are at the heart of their communities and as well as providing a broad, rich, and vibrant curriculum to pupils they also provide sporting, community education and other facilities and opportunities to their local community. 

We’re committed to making Anglian Learning a place where everyone feels valued and has equal access to the opportunities our Trust offers.  We are always open to discussing flexible working opportunities or making adjustments to ensure you thrive in your role with us.

The Vacancy

We are seeking to appoint a confident individual to fill the role of Cover Supervisor.  The successful candidate will supervise KS3 and KS4 classes, across the curriculum, during the short-term absence of their class teacher.  Occasionally, there may be no lessons requiring cover.  At such times Cover Supervisors must be willing to work with the teaching assistant, administration or inclusion teams.  Allocation of duties will depend on skills and experience.

This is an excellent opportunity for an assertive individual who has a good rapport with young people and is able to ensure that learning takes place in a calm, orderly and respectful environment.  The College is an extremely positive and friendly place to work.  Relationships between teaching and support staff are excellent, and senior staff offer strong support to their colleagues in the maintenance of good order.  The successful candidate will also undertake shared responsibility for a mentor group as a co-mentor.

Sawston Village College is an inclusive, comprehensive 11-16 academy, set on a picturesque open campus, a few miles south of the culturally iconic and aspirational city of Cambridge. It was the first purpose-built Village College in England and we are proud of the fact that it is still heralded as a model for community education and remains true to Henry Morris’ founding principles. Many members of the local community visit each week to participate in learning, sporting or leisure activities. We are also proud to be a founding member of the Anglian Learning Trust, a family of like-minded schools serving over 5500 pupils from ages 3-19 in this region. The Trust affords us opportunities to learn from each other, prosper from outstanding leadership development and build strong professional networks to achieve ambitious objectives.

We are a very welcoming and highly successful school, one in which all staff are valued and all contribute to our strong caring ethos. The College is listed in the top ten state secondary schools without a sixth form in the UK (The Sunday Times, 2023). Pupils are at the centre of all that we do but we can only succeed when all professionals work together, collaboratively and supportively, to ensure a positive, safe and calm learning environment in which all pupils can thrive. We ensure our staff have the resources, development and opportunities to fulfil their roles and responsibilities. Staff wellbeing is vital to our success and we consider workload and the working environment very carefully.
