Northampton international academy are seeking to appoint 2 Cover Supervisors on a permanent contract term time only to support the teaching staff across the school. The successful candidate will be required to supervise classes for absent teaching staff across both primary and secondary. When not needed to cover absent colleagues, they may be required to do other tasks such as intervention work with small groups of students withdrawn from a class.  The successful candidate will be resilient and resourceful, understand how to manage behaviours, and be able to ‘think on their feet’.

The children and staff at Northampton International Academy are currently completing the opening chapters of its history.  The DNA of NIA is set by our High Expectations and Global Vision and we are building into the curriculum for all year groups our Character Drivers: Collaboration, Responsibility, Respect, Care, Excellence and Aspiration. By instilling these characteristics in our learners, they will flourish both within school and beyond as they set out to create their own histories
