We are looking to appoint a well organised and enthusiastic Cover Supervisor to join our committed and talented team of staff at Polam Hall School. You will need excellent interpersonal and organisational skills and the ability to relate well to the children and young people in our school.
This role will co-ordinate cover and supervise lessons across our 4 -16 school. We anticipate that most of the work will be in the secondary phase of the school, but we would like to appoint a candidate who is comfortable working with primary pupils and especially children in KS2. The role will have some responsibility for the co-ordination of cover, working with the Vice Principal (Teaching and Learning) and the Cover Administrator. However the primary focus of the post will be to deliver lessons as provided by teachers and ensure that our exemplary standards of behaviour are upheld. The successful candidate will be the only Cover Supervisor in our school, but will work within a supportive, friendly and collegiate staff team.
Polam Hall School is a 4 – 16 all-through academy and is part of Woodard Academies Trust. We have 750 pupils on roll, with two forms of entry in our Primary Phase and four forms in our Secondary Phase. Polam Hall is a school with a unique and long history which today is proud to be a fully comprehensive school serving the young people of Darlington. Our mission is to educate the whole child, developing leadership, compassion, character and academic ambition, through the combination of our Academic and Concordia Crescimus curricula. We have high expectations and aspirations for every member of our school community.
Polam Hall is a community where staff and students work together for common goals. We make every effort to develop our staff team, offering professional development opportunities and the chance to be part of a wider Trust, yet retaining the friendly atmosphere of a small school. We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people to join our team, who have children at the heart of their practice and who will help us to drive forward our aim: to deliver an outstanding education to every single one of our pupils.
