We have an exciting opportunity for a cover supervisor to join us to work with our wonderful students and friendly, supportive staff. The cover supervisor’s primary role is to introduce work to students, set by a subject specialist, and support them with their learning in the absence of the classroom teacher. The successful candidate will be organised, flexible and reliable, with the ability to work with students in a professional and appropriate way. 

Candidates should be enthusiastic individuals who enjoy working with young people and have the ability to work well in a team. This is an excellent opportunity; especially for candidates considering a teaching career, as previous cover supervisors have gone on to complete their teacher training. Whilst previous experience of working in a secondary school setting is advantageous, it is not essential, as training will be provided.

If you would like to discuss the role or arrange to visit the school, please contact the school directly on 0118 9413458.

Staff who opt into the Local Government Pension Scheme will receive a generous employer contribution equivalent to 19.6% of salary.

Denefield School is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. CVs will not be accepted.
