Job Description

We are recruiting for a temporary Cover Supervisor at The Beacon to help during maternity absence of one of our team members.


This is an exciting opportunity to join the school on a fixed term contract basis.  The role will involve the supervision of classes (varying mainly from year 3 to year 8) and lesson cover during teachers’ short-term absence, participation in educational visits and assisting with suitable TA and administrative work if required.

Whilst cover is required to meet the school’s full-time timetable needs (5 days per week, term time only, 8.15am to 4.45pm) we would also be prepared to consider slightly reduced hours (minimum 9.00 am to 3.00 pm) or a job share arrangement.

We are ideally seeking individuals with suitable proven education experience.  For example, you may have worked previously as a teacher or HLTA or looking to gain school experience in relation to teacher training.

In this role, you would work under the direction of the Senior Master and lessons would be pre-planned by the teaching staff.

The opportunity is available on a fixed term contract basis starting ideally as soon as practicable (in January) and subject to satisfactory pre-appointment vetting.
