What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a committed and enthusiastic Cover Supervisor to join our friendly high achieving team. This is an exciting opportunity for an efficient and organised person to join us as a cover supervisor, in supporting the smooth operation of the school through delivering planned lessons.

Responsibilities include delivering lessons based on pre-prepared work to full class groups, managing the classroom environment to promote good behaviour for learning, and liaising with teaching colleagues on their return to promote good continuity for students.

Adaptability, resilience and the ability to think on your feet are essential in this varied and evolving role, as will an ability to communicate effectively with a wide range of people. Strong ICT skills and a good command of English and Math are necessities.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable school-based experience for those seeking a career in teaching as well as for experienced cover supervisors looking for a new challenge.

  • Protected planning time (we don’t use teachers for cover!)
  • Lots of opportunities to work with trainee teachers
  • A great school office and support staff team
  • A programme of monitoring that is focused on ‘development’ rather than ‘judging’
