Cover Supervisor - LA152

Are you passionate about providing high-quality, inclusive education? Are you looking to join a dedicated Academy Trust that genuinely invests in and develops their staff? Then apply today to join Lightcliffe Academy.

This is an exciting time for Lightcliffe Academy as it continues on an improvement journey as part of Abbey Multi Academy Trust. Currently in Special Measures, we have set ourselves ambitious targets: to be rated as “good” at next inspection, reaching and sustaining “outstanding” thereafter.

You will be required to instruct students and supervise work that has been set in the absence of a teacher. To manage the behaviour of pupils in class and ensure the environment and atmosphere is conducive to efficient and effective learning.

We are seeking to recruit:

  • a colleague looking to develop your career within a supportive team.
  • able to encourage and enthuse students to achieve their full potential.
  • someone who will subscribe to the ethos of the academy and go the extra mile in terms of time and commitment to get the very best for our students.

You will need to:

  • have the ability to build good relationships
  • have a flexible and adaptable approach
  • have good communication skills
  • understanding of safeguarding and confidentiality.

This is a genuinely exciting time to join our Academy and to play a part in the development of our Multi-Academy Trust. If you are looking to join an Academy with happy, positive and polite students and staff then we want to hear from you.
