Job Title:                Cover Supervisor - Teaching & Learning

Location:               Reddish Hall School, Stockport, Greater Manchester

Salary:                    £17,000 per annum

Hours:                    37.5 hours per week

Contract:               Permanent, Term Time only

This is an exciting time to join Reddish Hall as we expand our provision with the opening of The Hive, our new vocational unit.

We are seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to cover teaching and learning across the school to improve consistency when teachers are on PPA, in school meetings or absent.  You will be responsible for delivering teaching and learning during their absence.  You will be skilled at engaging and motivating pupils who find learning a challenge in this all age special school for pupils with behaviour and learning difficulties including SEMH, ASD.

This is a great opportunity for a Teacher who wants to spend less time on paperwork and more time developing creative learning opportunities for children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a school where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where pupils are listened to, respected and involved in as many decisions as possible.

When it comes to looking after our children, we never settle for second best. We are looking for a Class Teacher experienced in teaching a range of subjects and who shares our vision to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people in the UK to be happy and to make their way in the world.

Whilst previous experience of working in an SEN/ASC environment would be desirable, excellent teaching skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.

Educated to Qualified Teacher Status, you will be calm, engaging, resilient, and have an innovative style of teaching, motivated by helping every child to reach their potential.
