What skills and experience we're looking for

We are an inclusive, caring school in the heart of Exminster village with our ‘Rainbow Values’ at the very core. Our values ‘Enjoyment’, ‘Potential’, ‘Inclusion’ and ‘Community’ are at the EPICentre of learning.

We wish to appoint an excellent and inspiring Cover Supervisor to join our strong school team.

You will supervise classes of students across the school during the absence of teaching staff to ensure learning continues following cohesive planning.

You must have experience working in a school environment and it is important that you are personable, friendly, adaptable and able to work both within a team and under your own initiative.

As Cover Supervisor, you will need to demonstrate a good understanding of teaching and learning, and be able to communicate at all levels with pupils, staff and parents.

This post will suit:

- An early career teacher who is seeking a post to further develop their skills and experience before taking a teaching role;

- Teachers who love the role of working with children but do not want the full responsibility of a teaching role;

- Teachers looking to return to the sector after a career break who wish to update their skills and knowledge;

- Experienced Teaching Assistants or Cover Supervisors.

The successful applicant will prioritise building strong relationships with children and adults and will have an enthusiasm and love of learning to share with the children.
