Cover Supervisor job summary

We are excited to be recruiting for the post of Cover Supervisor and are looking for someone who wants to join a school community which values the wellbeing of its staff and invests in professional development.

We require a Cover Supervisor to join our team to deliver lessons to students, when teachers are absent.    This role involves working 32.5 hours per week to be worked Monday to Friday between the hours of 8.30am and 4.00pm ,   term-time only plus five training days .   

At Goldington Academy the Cover Supervisor:

1.           Is the first choice “cover” person, where possible.

2.           Provides in class support for teaching staff or for individual students (in addition to any individual needs support that may already be provided).

3.           Assists in the preparation of teaching resources.

Having achieved a 2022 Ofsted grading of ‘good’ overall, with personal development, leadership and management being recognised as ‘outstanding,’ we are determined not to be complacent and want to achieve even more for our students and staff. Our motto is ‘Engaging Minds, Nurturing Success and Inspiring Futures,’ and the school seeks to achieve this in many different ways.

Our February 2022 Ofsted report begins with the following paragraph: “Pupils are proud of their school. They enthuse about it to their parents, who know that they feel safe and happy. Pupils have many subjects to choose from, so everyone gets a chance to shine. They know that leaders have very high expectations of what they can achieve.”

We were delighted that our 2023 GCSE results confirmed we are in the top 2% of schools in the country for progress of pupils between ages 11 and 16.

What can we offer you?

·         Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders

·         Excellent teaching resources

·         Robust behaviour system

·         A range of staff benefits including a cash health plan and access to a cycle to work scheme

The school’s successes are well documented but we believe that it is most impressive when seen in action. We welcome enquiries and visits prior to application, so please get in touch with Karen Chisnall chisnallk@goldington.beds.sch.uk for more information.
