Cover Supervisor job summary

Priestlands is seeking to appoint two Cover Supervisors to start in September 2024 at the beginning of the autumn term. This post provides an ideal opportunity to gain versatile experience in a classroom environment and is particularly suitable for candidates thinking about a career in teaching or for those who wish to work and gain experience during a gap year before going on to University.

It will appeal to someone who likes being with young people and helping them to learn and succeed when the usual teacher is unavailable. It will require an innovative approach so that students can gain access to the work set and complete it in the time allowed. You will need to have a good sense of discipline (firm but fair) but a non-confrontational approach to the students is essential. Previous experience of working with young people in a similar role would be an advantage but is not essential as induction and training will be provided. However, the post will best suit someone who is naturally comfortable in the presence of young people.

The post is for a total of 30 hours per week, 8.30am-3.10pm Monday to Friday which includes an unpaid lunch break. You will receive your salary in 12 equal payments. The post is for 39 working weeks per year (term time only), but you will be paid for 44.60 weeks of the year to include holiday pay.

Benefits of working at Priestlands include:

  • Free on-site car park
  • Friendly and sociable colleagues
  • Enrolment in and generous contribution to one of the UK’s largest public sector pension schemes; LGPS
  • Eligible for reduced rate membership at NFDC leisure centres
  • A tax efficient Cycle-to-Work scheme through salary sacrifice
  • Free and confidential Employee Assistance programme offering advice on a range of areas including well-being, housing and financial matters
  • Free eye sight test every 2 years
  • Professional development opportunities for all staff
  • Affordable on-site canteen

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to receiving your application.

To apply, please click on the link on this page. Please submit your application as soon as possible as we may invite candidates to interview before the closing date. We reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the advertised date if we receive applications that meet the criteria. Once a vacancy has closed, we are unable to consider further applications, so please submit your application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Priestlands School, an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school, serves the south of the New Forest. Our catchment area covers an area of outstanding beauty, stretching from Beaulieu in the East, to Brockenhurst in the North, and Milford-on-Sea at its most westerly point. To the south lies the Solent, providing one of the most popular sailing areas in the country. We serve eleven primary and junior schools, although our intake includes children from other schools, including a number of private schools.

Priestlands is an exciting school in which to work and we are proud of its many achievements. We are committed to being a leading comprehensive school that serves the entire community, provides high quality education across the curriculum and has ambitious plans for its continued success and development. Our headline GCSE results and progress score consistently place us among the top schools in Hampshire and the New Forest and demonstrate that Priestlands is consistently delivering positive outcomes for all groups of students, year on year.

We are proud of our academic record and believe all children are capable of making exceptional progress. We encourage them to embrace challenge, pursue excellence and to be resilient in overcoming obstacles. Above all we want to ignite in our students a love of learning which will serve them well throughout their lives.

However, Priestlands is about far more than exam results as our motto, Learn more… Do more… Be more…, implies. Our aim is to develop well rounded young people who have the skills and attributes to be successful in life and make a positive impact in our community.



We encourage all our young people to develop a sense of values and responsibility for themselves and other people. We aim to treat young people as individuals, recognising and respecting individual needs, aptitudes, interests and aspirations.
