Required for September 2017, we are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and organised Cover Supervisor to join the staff of our outstanding school.
Ranelagh is an 11-18 coeducational, Anglican Academy (converter) which is oversubscribed and has an excellent reputation for academic achievement and positive school ethos. The school has had four
‘outstanding’ OFSTED reports, with Grade 1 across all areas, but we are not complacent.
The Cover Supervisor role involves the administration of cover requirements and the delivery of set work to classes. Staff absence is entered on the school’s data base before cover staff are deployed appropriately. A substantial part of the role will be the delivery of work which is set for students in the case of their usual teacher’s absence. This is not a teaching position but the Cover Supervisor is expected to ensure that students remain on task and complete work to the best of their ability.
The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, confident and well-organised and share the school’s commitment to helping all students achieve their potential. They will also need to have had some
experience of working with young people, preferably in education.
This position may suit someone who is considering a career in teaching. Ranelagh enjoys links with
Reading University and the Bracknell Forest Secondary Schools Training Partnership, supporting the
training of between 5 and 10 trainee teachers each year.
If you are interested in learning more about the position and the possible leadership opportunities
available, please contact the Headteacher via the school office, on 01344 421233 or by email,firstname.lastname@example.org from whom an application pack is also available for those responding by post.
Applications will be considered on receipt, please reply as soon as possible.
