Inspire their remarkable with us

Bexleyheath Academy is a non-selective comprehensive situated in the heartland of Kent grammar schools. The school is currently in special measures but will not be there for long. The Executive Director for Bexleyheath Academy and the Principal have both recently joined and have previously been responsible for the turnaround at Harris Academy Battersea. Under their leadership, the school moved from special measures to outstanding and rose from the bottom in Wandsworth to become one of the only schools in England to record a Progress 8 score of more than +1 in all three years of the measure. It also won the ‘Evening Standard School of the Year Award’ and was designated as a ‘World-Class’ in 2018. Bexleyheath is at the start of the same journey and is actively seeking passionate and dedicated teachers who will join this fight to ensure that our students go on to lead remarkable lives. We have students from all walks of life and will give each of them, no matter how difficult their start, access to every walk of life.

We are looking for a Cover Supervisor to supervise classes during the short-term absence of teachers. Bexleyheath Academy operates a 4-period day and lessons are 80 minutes in length. The Cover Supervisor may also provide support to the Academic Intervention programme. The cover supervisor will provide direction to students in the absence of their teacher, following guidance provided by a teacher.  The primary focus of the role is to ensure that students are fully engaged in learning. The cover supervisor will be responsible for applying the Academy Behaviour Policy with consistency.
