We have an exciting opportunity for a Cover Supervisor to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team. We seek commitment, professionalism and a passion for putting the children first. While we would prefer to appoint someone 6.75 hours a day (Monday to Friday, term time only), there is flexibility to consider less hours for the right candidate.

As a Cover Supervisor you will be responsible for supervising students during short-term teacher absences and assist in preparing the learning environment and the materials required. You will cover lessons of any subject using the cover work set by the teacher, set high expectations to motivate and challenge students whilst managing behaviour effectively and promoting a positive learning environment.

The post would suit an individual considering a teaching career, but applications are welcome from any candidate with integrity, imagination and energy for this rewarding role. The successful candidate will be confident and have the ability to manage whole class situations, is resilient, able to project a sense of authority and would like to play a vital part in the continued success of this high-achieving school. 

You will be working with students aged 11-18, and need to have the ability to motivate and encourage them to develop and achieve in the school environment. You will also need to be responsive to the individual needs of our students and promote the inclusion of all students in the school. No previous experience is required as full training will be given – however, you must have excellent communication skills, ICT capability and be able to work on your own initiative.

In return we can offer you:

  • As a new member of staff, you will be well supported in a school. Our training and development of staff is a strategic priority, our CPD is high quality and takes place throughout the academic year supported by colleagues within the school.
  • Caring colleagues & wonderful students; and
