Secondary vacancies

WE currently HAVE THE FoLLOWING VACANCIES at the secondary acadeMY

  • Cover supervisor
  • Cleaners


Do you have experience working with children and are looking for a flexible term time role in a school?  We are seeking to recruit an engaging and dynamic individual to join our Cover Supervisor team. 

You won't be tasked with marking work or setting homework, and will not need subject knowledge to deliver lessons.  However, you will need to be an enthusiastic and positive role model and have a genuine passion for education along with strong organisational and interpersonal skills. 

Your day will be spent liaising with various teaching departments, delivering set lessons in a variety of subjects throughout the day, effectively managing classroom behaviour and ensuring students maintain their learning in the absence of their regular teacher.  To be successful in this role a confident classroom presence is required and an engaging and motivating personality with a positive can-do attitude.  The ability to work calmly and often under pressure is essential and excellent IT skills would be advantageous. 

The role is currently vacant and we can be flexible with regards to working days (a minimum of 2 days a week), working from 8.30am - 3.30pm, term time only.  Although initially fixed term for this academic year, for the right candidate this could lead to a permanent position.  This position will be of particular interest to those thinking of a career in teaching.  Previous cover supervisors have used the experience and training to secure a place on teacher training courses and have subsequently gone on to have successful teaching careers.  The salary on offer is £18,772 - £21,884 fte per annum pro rata. 

If you enjoy a challenge and are interested in applying for this rewarding post, please download further information below and return your completed application form by email to jobs@wardenpark.co.uk.  If you would like to have an informal discussion about the role, please contact Nigel Regan (Director of Teaching) at nregan@wardenpark.co.uk. 

Warden Park Secondary Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful candidate will be subject to an Enhanced DBS Check.


Closing Date for applications: 26th November 2021                         Interviews:  ASAP

Supply Teacher and Cover Supervisor opportunities  

Although we do not have any specific vacancies at present we are always interested in meeting people who are looking to return to teaching or working as part of a team covering lessons.

We have a well-established and highly effective team of Cover Supervisors who work closely with our students across all subjects to ensure they maintain their learning in the absence of their regular teacher. The cover team has a wide variety of previous experience and skills which are used across the Academy when not covering lessons. Consequently, every day is different and spent working with a wide range of colleagues and students, making this role particularly interesting. The majority of the team work between 2 and 3 days a week.

From time to time we also need supply teachers to cover longer term absence and for this we draw upon a small pool of teachers who know our systems and expectations. 

Our cover supervisors and supply teachers are extremely adaptable, organised and are able to work calmly often under pressure. They develop a good working knowledge of current ICT packages and digital learning and because of our commitment to developing our staff they regularly engage in a range of training activities. 

Cover and supply staff often find that the experience gained allows them to secure training opportunities (e.g. PGCE) or further advance their careers. 

Warden Park Secondary Academy is a significantly oversubscribed school demonstrating the high regard with which it is held in the local community.  Our students are committed and hard-working and it is in no doubt that this is a very enjoyable place to work. 

If you would like to visit or have an informal discussion about a future role then please contact Nigel Regan (Assistant Headteacher) at nregan@wardenpark.co.uk or Debbie White (Cover Manager) at dwhite28@wardenpark.co.uk
