As part of our continued growth, we now have a fantastic opportunity for a Cover Supervisor to join our close-knit team at The Grange Therapeutic School. If you are looking to join a dedicated team in a challenging and rewarding environment, we would like to hear from you.

About us

Set in the peaceful Leicestershire countryside, The Grange Therapeutic School offers residential care and day school places for boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 18 who have social, emotional and mental health needs or high functioning autism.  We offer children a wide range of creative indoor and outdoor learning opportunities and extracurricular activities.  

We are part of Acorn Care and Education and can promise you plenty of challenges, and a rich variety of opportunities to develop your career.

Acorn Care and Education is part of the Outcomes First Group.

About the Role

Joining our team of dedicated staff, you will be responsible for providing day to day cover for teacher absences. There is an expectation that work will be provided however in some cases you will have to use your own resources if the absence is sudden.

You will be based across Lower and Upper School and will also be expected to support in activities inside and outside of the classroom as part of our varied curriculum.

Who we are looking for?

We are looking for a cover supervisor who wants to help pupils achieve qualifications and improve the social and emotional welfare. The successful candidate may regard this as a stepping-stone to teaching.

No two days are the same at The Grange so we want staff who can work at pace to turn ‘can’t do’ into ‘want to’ and are motivated by working with children with special needs. You will be motivated by your belief that every child can achieve and reach their potential.  The ideal candidate will be resilient, have a calm and engaging demeanour and enjoy working with children.

Whilst previous experience of working in within a SEN environment would be desirable, the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.
