Didcot Girls’ School is a dynamic school. In November 2022, the school was judged as continuing to be Outstanding. As Ofsted recognised, we invest in all of our staff:

“Leaders support staff very well. They have established a collaborative and respectful working environment. With the trust, they provide highly valued training and leadership programmes. Staff are exceptionally proud to work at the school.”

Ofsted also noted the high standards within the school and commented that “Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary”

We are a values-driven school, committed to high quality teaching and learning and respectful relationships within an inclusive learning community. Developing stimulating and student-centred teaching and learning is at the centre of our school development work. We work hard to ensure that all girls’ education enables our students to develop confidence, leadership skills and high levels of aspiration.

We are committed to continuous professional development and have wide-ranging training and development opportunities. We are also mindful of the competing demands people face in their lives and make every effort to accommodate flexible working.

Summer 2023 GCSE results were superb with 85% of all students achieving 4+ in English and Maths, and 71% doing the same at 5+.  Results at A level in the mixed sixth form shared with our partner school, St Birinus School, are also extremely strong with 34% of grades awarded as A* or A and 66% achieving Grades A*-B. These results place us as one of the highest performing schools in the county. Didcot Girls’ School is also in the top 3% of state schools in the country based on National Performance Tables data.

The position

We are looking to recruit a Cover Supervisor whose primary role is to provide supervision for students whose teacher is absent and to ensure purposeful and successful learning during this time.   There is also the opportunity for candidates to extend the role to act as a form tutor. Flexibility to take on a variety of roles at those times when there are no absent teachers is required. This may include administrative tasks, invigilation and individual or small group support for students in lessons across the curriculum.

You will be joining a strong team of Cover Supervisors. Excellent training will be provided through an induction programme. We are looking for someone who enjoys building strong and effective relationships with young people and is able to develop students’ learning, using the resources provided. Ideally you will have prior experience working with young people. Resilience, flexibility and a good grasp of English and Maths are required, as is the ability to take on a role of authority whilst maintaining positive relationships. This is an excellent opportunity to take on a fulfilling role working with young people and to be part of a vibrant and supportive school community.

The post is permanent, term-time only, remunerated on Grade 6 and with the possibility of being remunerated on Grade 7 with the additional role of form tutor. However, the role would also be suitable for anyone planning to train to teach at a later date and can be offered both on a part-term and/or a temporary basis to the right candidate. Additional training and CPD opportunities will be offered, as appropriate.

The closing date is 8am on  Monday 4th December, however, the school reserves the right to interview and appoint on receipt of applications.
