We are now looking for a Cover Supervisor at Maiden Erlegh School in Reading.
Our school is an ambitious, over-subscribed 11-16 secondary school in an urban context which is as committed to the welfare of students and staff as it is our high-quality education. Our school benefits from excellent, modern facilities and teaching spaces and we are very proud of our vibrant, diverse and engaging students who work hard and have high aspirations.
The successful applicant will be energetic and enthusiastic and enjoy working with 11-16-year olds. Whilst experience is not necessary, you must have a good standard of literacy, be adaptable and willing to be involved in all aspects of school life, have a calm manner and good sense of humour and be able to work as part of team. You will enjoy nurturing young people to grow in confidence and flourish personally. You will share our inclusive values of “opportunity, diversity and success for all” and you will have a willingness to develop your own practice in line with our ethos of continuous improvement.
In return, you will be joining our supportive team of tenacious, optimistic and talented Cover Supervisors, who have the support of an experienced leadership team.
Professional development is a strength here, thanks to our Teaching School. We offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements including part-time working and job sharing.
The school is a part of the Maiden Erlegh Trust which offers a range of career opportunities in our vibrant and successful schools. We have a proven track record of supporting ambitious staff to middle and senior leadership posts and we can offer Specialist Leader of Education and school improvement opportunities to the right candidates.
Unfortunately visits to our school are not possible at the moment, but if you would like to have an informal chat with our Assistant Headteacher, please email our recruitment team.

Closing date: 9am, 16 April 2021
