Cover Supervisor

Working as a Cover Supervisor can be extremely rewarding but also very demanding. Schools may wish to employ staff for cover supervision but on occasions where they are not needed for cover, they might also be released to provide additional support to teachers in classrooms, or to carry out administrative tasks.

As a Cover Supervisor you will be expected to:

  • Undertake whole class supervision in the absence of the class teacher, setting work previously prepared by the teacher
  • Develop curricular knowledge as required by the school
  • Apply the school’s behaviour management policy and report any difficulties to the class teacher/head teacher
  • Set homework previously prepared by the teacher
  • Mark elements of class work and homework under the guidance of the class teacher
  • Undertake observations of the pupils and contribute to pupil records
  • Administer (and mark) class tests
  • Supervise the work of the teaching assistant
  • Abide by and work towards all the policies within the school e.g. behaviour management, Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities
  • Carry out the above duties in accordance with the Children’s Services Department’s Equal Opportunities Policy.
