We are looking for a Cover Supervisor who shares our vision and can inspire and support our young people to achieve more than they believe is possible. As a school, we pride ourselves on our consistently high standards, in terms of both learning and behaviour. We have a commitment to the success of all students, academically and pastorally and expect all our staff to share this commitment.
The role of Cover Supervisor will include the supervision of whole classes under the guidance of teaching/senior staff, including implementation of work programmes, managing student behaviour and assisting students in relevant activities, all contributing towards the pursuit of excellence in achievement and behaviour.
Ideally you will have:
• Previous experience of supporting and managing groups of secondary school age children
• Experience within a learning environment
• Experience of working with students with additional needs
• Good interpersonal skills
• Very strong literacy and numeracy skills
• A minimum of 4 GCSE grades A to C or equivalent (including English)
The successful candidate will have either previous experience in a similar role or will have transferrable skills and experience and be excited at the opportunity of taking on a role within this key area.
Our school is ‘Good’ poised to be ‘Outstanding’ very soon. We are a vibrant, oversubscribed 11 to 18 comprehensive school with excellent GCSE results across all subjects; we are recognised as one of the highest performing schools in the region in terms of Key Stage 4 outcomes. Our A level results and destinations are equally impressive, with the school placed in the top 10% for performance (according to ALPS) and over 95% of all students gaining entrance to their university or apprenticeship of choice.
We are committed to professional development for all staff, regardless of role. We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers staff to take control of their own professional development. For those striving for career development, we run annual middle and senior leadership development programmes. Regardless of what point you are at in your career and whatever your aspirations may be, Penistone Grammar School can support you to achieve them.
