We are seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to supervise whole classes during the short-term absence of teachers.  Cover can be across all phases of our all-through school although our Cover Supervisors tend to specialise in certain age groups. This post is likely to be both primary and secondary age focused. Successful candidates will be required to support the administration needs of particular curriculum areas in the school. They may also undertake invigilation duties during internal and external examinations.

The post holder will have daily contact with pupils and staff and therefore experience of working with young people is essential. The post holder must have the ability to relate effectively to all adults and young people.   

Successful candidates must be confident in setting high expectations of conduct in the classroom. Training is available for the successful candidates.

We believe that we can transform the learning of generations of children by having the full range of children on one site, led by staff and supported by a community who share common values, learning and curriculum aims, policies, and practices in an all-through school. We are a leading-edge learning community in the field of all-through education.
