What skills and experience we're looking for

Brayton Academy seeks to recruit a skilled colleague to join our team of Cover Supervisors

Working in classrooms directly with our students, our Cover Supervisors play a pivotal supporting role in raising standards of achievement by implementing agreed work programmes with individual groups, in or out of the classroom. You will provide effective supervision to whole classes of students across all subjects and year groups. You will be conscientious and self-motivated and always working to support and motivate students. You will become a role model to our students and instil high expectations from the work you will be asking the students to complete. Interested candidates must have:

  • relevant experience of working with young people in a learning environment
  • a clear and positive communication manner
  • an understanding of curriculum
  • A GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) in English and Maths

If you are considering a route into teaching, this is a perfect way to gain experience. You could then go on to apply to train to teach with us on our exciting 1-year programme through the School Direct initiative in partnership with Leeds Trinity University and Leeds Beckett University.

Brayton Academy is proud to be part of The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust. The Rodillian ethos of resilience, a Growth Mindset and Positive Discipline has helped to transform schools – from their culture to their Ofsted ratings – as well as the lives of students and teachers.

We raise aspiration levels for staff, students and schools by encouraging creativity in the classroom, and by giving our staff freedom to experiment with their teaching, as part of our pioneering curriculum. All of this is guided by our Positive Discipline policy – a traditional approach to behaviour management.

The successful candidate will enjoy access to high quality CPD. You will also be joining a happy Trust where 95% of colleagues agreed that they enjoy working here and 92% would recommend us to a friend or colleague (taken from 2022 staff wellbeing survey). Our commitment to the Education Staff Wellbeing Chartermeans we prioritise staff mentalhealth, drive down unnecessary workload and support our colleagues toprogress in theircareers.

This role provides a real opportunity for you to make your mark, and as a growing Trust with an excellent reputation and access to high-quality CPD for all, there are always opportunities for career development.

Brayton Academy is a fully inclusive secondary school offering places to boys and girls aged 11 to 16 years of age. In becoming part of the Rodillian Multi-Academy Trust we will be committed to providing private school opportunities in a modern comprehensive environment. We are a school where traditional values of discipline, behaviour and respect are sacrosanct allied with the most innovative, differentiated and state of the art curriculum available.
We look to raise educational achievement to the highest standards keeping up to date with the latest strategies in education. Working in partnership with one of the country’s leading academies we are in the vanguard of school improvement.
We aim to ensure that the students reap the rewards, driven by a core purpose of high expectations on student learning, well-being and achievement.
It is my belief that by becoming part of the Rodillian Trust, the students of Brayton Academy will have the opportunities to attain outcomes and undertake experiences that will be the foundation of their successful future lives through the mutual advantages of being a part of a local, focused academy group.
Al Moon
Head of School

We strongly believe that any student can achieve in our academy.
We have high expectations of our students and staff to deliver the highest standards. Teachers are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in the classroom in order to create motivational and inspiring lessons.
Our curriculum instils resilience in our students from the moment they enter the school. Encompassed within this innovative curriculum is our belief in a growth mindset. We believe that intelligence is far from fixed or inherited and it is an area in which we can all improve if we work hard and learn from our mistakes.
We encourage our students to experiment and take risks in their learning; to establish an environment where intelligent failure is just the start on the road to success.
We have a duty to prepare our students for the extensive examinations that they now face in the current education system. Our academies start this early in Year 7 with a structured assessment and examination calendar. We will give our students the skills and examination techniques required to succeed.
