Cover Supervisor job summary

We are looking for a Cover Supervisor to join our support staff team. We are looking for someone who has high expectations of all students and is committed to raising educational achievement in classes across both the curriculum and academic years. Flexibility is key as the daily role is a reactive one requiring you to move to where need is greatest.

You would be supervising classes during the short-term absence of the assigned teacher working in a classroom environment alongside students at Key Stage 3 and 4. Your main responsibility would be to instruct students about the work set by the teacher and assisting them to stay on task and complete the work set to the best of their ability. The provision of cover will be varied: you might introduce the work by talking through a Power Point, showing video clips, or reading through texts with students. You may be asked to undertake the role of a form tutor, lead a class discussion, organise group work or supervise PE and Drama activities. You would also learn about school policies and how they are implemented including the school’s Behaviour for Learning Policy.

Previous experience of working with or interacting with children or young people is required for this role as well as good communication skills, an ability to work with minimum of supervision and to manage students in a classroom setting. Confidence using a laptop as well as good organisational skills are important for this role.

In return for your hard work, you will receive fantastic support, CPD opportunities through the academy and wider Ormiston Academy Trust, a wealth of staff benefits, and the priceless reward of knowing that you are truly making a difference.

Ormiston Chadwick Academy opened in Widnes in September 2014 serving the community of West Widnes. Our Academy is large enough to offer an outstanding curriculum but small enough to have a strong community ethos in which all students are known and nurtured to achieve their potential.
