Cover Supervisor

32.5 Hours per week Whole Year

Grade 5

Required from September 2017

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic Cover Supervisor who will undertake cover duties for teaching colleagues absent through sickness or training.  The successful candidate will have a firm commitment to upholding the ethos and values of our school; have a professional approach to staff development; high expectations; and a determination to succeed.  This is now a well-established post in school – we have one other full-time Cover Supervisor, who, as part of the team, cover the majority of our teaching staff absence.  The current post holder is leaving us to become a teacher.

At Sir Graham Balfour we offer:

  • A friendly, well-motivated staff, who embrace willingly a culture of professional development.
  • An ever growing reputation in the local community which has resulted in the school being consistently oversubscribed in an area where student rolls are falling.
  • A very positive climate for learning.
  • A first rate learning environment. We are housed in buildings completed in 2002 and financed via a PFI initiative.
  • Innovative 14-19 collaboration and an increasing roll at KS5.
  • A commitment to inclusive practice.

Please note:

  • The school is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all students and as such all applicants will be submitted for an enhanced DBS check.
  • Applications can only be accepted if submitted on the enclosed formal application form.
  • Two references will be required, one of which must be from your most recent employer.
  • We confirm our commitment to equality of opportunity in all areas of our work. All individuals will be treated in a fair and equal manner and in accordance with the law regardless of gender, marital status, race, religion, colour, age, disability or sexual orientation.

Visits to the school are strongly recommended and can be arranged by contacting Mrs Vicki McKeen (details below).

For an application pack, please access our website, or contact Mrs Vicki McKeen, Headteacher’s PA, on or telephone 01785 223490.

The closing date for applications is:  1.30pm on Friday 23rd June.  Please return completed applications to
