What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a highly motivated and dedicated Cover Supervisor to join our talented and supportive team to supervise prepared lessons in the absence of a class teacher, ensuring that students' learning and development is continued and maintained.

This role is suitable if you enjoy working with young people and thrive on every day being different. Classroom experience is desirable but not essential, the confidence to supervise a class is equally important

During cover lessons your role will be to ensure all students understand the task which has been set and are engaged with learning. You will also be expected to manage the behaviour of the class when covering in accordance with the school’s behaviour policy. It will be essential to work with the students to ensure they are getting the most out of the lesson and to facilitate their learning as much as possible.

Our ideal candidate is a conscientious and dedicated team player, who is happy to work flexibly in a busy school. You will have excellent communication skills and a good command of written and spoken English.

What the school offers its staff

Our vision statement clearly describes our ‘Journey to Excellence’ and we are aiming to move from ‘good to outstanding’ in all aspects of our work at the school, particularly in teaching and learning.

On our journey we commit to:

  • Providing a rich and creative teaching and learning community
  • Providing a safe and caring environment
  • Investing in ourselves to ensure everyone achieves success
  • Respecting and valuing everyone and embracing diversity
  • Building strong partnerships within our local community
  • Continually preparing to meet future challenges

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.

Offers of employment may be subject to the following checks (where relevant):
childcare disqualification
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
online and social media
prohibition from teaching
right to work
satisfactory references
suitability to work with children

You must tell us about any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.
