Abbeyfield School is an exciting place to work; we became an academy with Creative Education Trust in October 2012. This is a school of 1300 students between the ages of 11 and 19. We employ over 130 staff; this includes teaching, support and administration staff. Abbeyfield School is a good school (Ofsted May 2016) with a desire to become outstanding.

We are looking to recruit a professional and enthusiastic Cover Supervisor, the successful candidate will be expected to:

· cover lessons of any subject

In periods where cover is not required, the successful candidate will support in the classroom as directed. 

The successful candidate should be passionate about maximising student achievement. Previous experience working with 11-18 year olds within a school environment would be desirable, but not essential, as appropriate training will be available. The role would also be suited to those considering a career in teaching in the future.
