Would you like to work within a forward-thinking and supportive school? If so, King James’s School could be the place for you!

We are seeking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced Cover Supervisor. In the absence of the class teacher the Cover Supervisor will ensure that students are engaged in previously set learning activities, managing behaviour and ensuring a safe learning environment.

Excellent communication skills are essential to this role along with experience of working with secondary school students. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate initiative, enthusiasm and flexibility as well as experience in a similar role. This is an excellent opportunity for a dedicated and ambitious colleague to join a successful, progressive and happy school.

King James’s School is justifiably proud to be one of the highest attaining 11-16 comprehensive school in Kirklees and is regularly heavily oversubscribed. The school serves a suburban area and several villages to the south and east of Huddersfield. We became an Academy in September 2012. The school was awarded ‘good’ in its October 2018 inspection and consistently achieves excellent grades at GCSE.

‘The King James’s Way’ sets out the values and commitments which lie at the centre of everything we do.

Though we are proud of our academic success, we are equally proud of our inclusive approach and first-class, wraparound pastoral care.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. All staff will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

For more information about the school please visit our website – Full details of the vacancy can be found in the ‘Get in Touch’ section.

If you have any questions about the role please contact Tracey Brook, the Principal’s PA, at the school or email her (

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 22nd January 2019. Interviews are expected to take place on Monday 28th January 2019.
