Required from October 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Governors of this popular, successful and highly oversubscribed 11-16 High School are seeking to
appoint a committed, personable and motivated temporary Cover Supervisor to contribute towards
the efficient operation of the school. We require an enthusiastic and hardworking person who is
committed to delivering a high-class service when providing cover for short term staff absences.
This post is temporary to cover the maternity absence of the current postholder and hours of work are
37 per week over 5 days, term-time only plus 5 days.
This role will involve taking responsibility for lessons on a day to day basis for any absent teachers.
Work will be set for students and your role will be to ensure the work is completed and to manage the
students’ behaviour in line with the school’s policy. There is no specific requirement to be familiar with
the subjects you cover as you are not required to teach. When no cover is required you will support
the school’s Student Support Team.
Our most recent Ofsted inspection (February 2022) reiterated the strengths that had been confirmed
in the previous report (2017) and are firmly embedded across our school. The inspection team noted
that ‘pupils are proud to attend’ Elton with an established culture of ‘high aspirations for what pupils
can achieve’. Our students achieve well, with the inspectors being particularly impressed with the
climate for learning and behaviour of our students – their ‘positive behaviour at all times is
characteristic of the respectful culture of this school [and] their positive conduct reflects leaders’ high
We have a strong system of staff training in place aimed at developing the very best practice while we
have a constant focus on ensuring that all of our team feel supported to give of their best and to have a
work life balance. We pride ourselves on taking a proactive approach to promoting the wellbeing of
everyone in our school community, and to ensuring a work / life balance for our staff.
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and
we expect all staff to share this commitment.
Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring
