What skills and experience we're looking for

We have an exciting opportunity for either a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA) or Cover Supervisor to join our hardworking and motivated team at Cheam Fields Primary Academy.

The purpose of this role is to provide high quality learning opportunities and cover on behalf of the class teacher, during periods of planned and unplanned absence.

You will collaborate with teachers and other staff to plan, deliver and provide feedback for classes, small groups and individual pupils throughout the school within a framework agreed with and under the guidance and supervision of qualified teachers.

The exact role will be dependent on the candidate’s experience and qualifications.

The successful candidate(s) will:

  • Be suitably qualified (please refer to the person specification documents for details of this);

  • Have relevant and recent experience leading whole classes under a framework of supervision;

  • Be motivated to provide the best learning experiences possible for our pupils;

  • Work collaboratively with colleagues and have a positive and solution-focused outlook;

  • Be flexible and willing to adapt to suit the school’s needs as they arise, sometimes on short notice

What the school offers its staff

Ideally, we are looking to appoint one candidate for 25 hours per week, but we will consider applications from candidates who wish to work fewer hours (e.g. 2 or 3 days) and where we can appoint more than one person to cover the 25 hours. The hours of work are expected to be 08:15 - 15:30 (1 hour for lunch), but we can be flexible for the right candidate.
