Tiverton High School is an innovative and successful school situated within easy reach of Exmoor and the North Devon coast. We have over 1250 students aged 11-16 on role and have a genuinely comprehensive intake. Our philosophy is grounded on the belief that ‘we are here to help children succeed: it’s that simple’.

We are a cooperative trust school and have recently joined a formal federation with Heathcoat Primary and Rackenford C of E Primary School.

We are looking to appoint a Cover Supervisor who will oversee lessons for teachers who are temporarily absent and to support teaching and learning across the school.

As a cover supervisor, you are responsible for supervising work pre-set in accordance with the schools’ guidelines, and ensuring such work is carried out to the best of their abilities. You will manage the behaviour of pupils whilst they undertake their work and ensuring a constructive and positive environment is always enforced, whilst de-escalating situations within the classroom in the correct way ensuring safeguarding procedures are always adhered.

Safeguarding children and young people is our priority and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and references are required for this post.

If you are willing to go the extra mile and share our ambition to provide an outstanding education to fantastic children, then we would welcome your application.
