Do you have the drive, passion and commitment to deliver outstanding support to 11-16 year old pupils? This is an opportunity to join a dedicated team at Sir John Nelthorpe who are committed to providing the best possible education for our pupils.

This is a key position within the support structure of the school. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, efficient, motivated, friendly Cover Supervisor to supervise whole classes during the short-term absence of teachers. Cover Supervisors give instructions for the lesson as provided by a teacher and the primary focus of the role will be to maintain good order and uphold standards of behaviour in the classroom and to keep pupils on task.

Cover Supervisors will respond to general questions and provide general feedback to teachers but will not be required to undertake ‘specified work’ (planning, preparation, delivery, assessment, recording and reporting of achievement, progress and development).

Candidates should be enthusiastic, engaging, flexible and highly organised with excellent literacy, numeracy, and ICT skills, a good sense of humour, a positive attitude and someone who understands the importance of developing a positive culture. These are all essential for coping with the demands of a busy school environment.

The post is also an excellent opportunity for those considering training to become a teacher.

If you are successful in your appointment you will be a key contributor to this hugely successful, popular School whose ethos is underpinned by our values of Respect, Resilience & Integrity and the school motto “Fortis et Fidelis”.

There may be additional allowances available within the school supporting the Directors of Literacy, Numeracy and STEM and other areas of enrichment in school, engaging and co-ordinating activities in the relevant areas for the right candidate.

If you wish to discuss the position in more details please email Mrs R Peck – Deputy Headteacher via email to or call the school 01652 656551.

If you feelyou share our values, have the vision and drive for excellence and want to be part of an enthusiastic and dedicated team, committed to ensuring that pupils fulfil their potential, then we would like to hear from you. Closing date for applications: Thursday 20th June 2024 at 9:00am
