The Role

Trinity Academy Grammar

Cover Supervisor

30.25 hours per week, term time only plus 5 days  

Scale 5 (Points 12-17)  

Actual starting salary range: £17,434 – £19,106 

Trinity Academy Grammar is an ambitious and inclusive 11-16 school that, for the first time in the school’s history, is oversubscribed (with a waiting list) from September 2023.  At the start of the new academic year, we will have over 1,000 students on roll; having grown this number from 650 when we first started since becoming part of the Trinity Multi-Academy Trust, Trinity. 

Academy Grammar has had a plethora of successes.  In February 2023 Ofsted graded the academy as good with outstanding features in leadership and personal development.  This followed being awarded the World Class School mark in 2021.  These transformational changes mean that it is an exciting time to join the academy, we are incredibly proud of our successes, and we are looking for the best people to work alongside our already committed team to continue our journey. 

In 2018/2019, the results we achieved placed us within the top 1% of the most improved schools in the country, making us one of the highest-performing schools for progress in the Calderdale local authority.  Aspirations and ambitions are high; however, the school is determined not to rest on its laurels and is continually striving for ways to better serve the students. 

All these fantastic and exciting initiatives require the expertise and commitment of dedicated staff and Trinity Academy Grammar now wishes to appoint a Cover Supervisor to join our Team.  The role of Cover Supervisor demands flexibility and initiative, as you will be required to supervise students to complete planned work during the absence of their usual teacher.  This is an ideal opportunity for candidates looking to start their career in teaching, or to build on previous teaching experience. 

What are we looking for? 

  • 5 or more GCSEs at Grade C or above including Maths and English (or equivalent) 
  • Experience of teaching (or other relevant learning environments), covering groups or whole classes  
  • Basic experience of assessing student progress 
  • Ability to communicate clearly 
  • Ability to prioritise workload, handle pressure and deadlines, without the need for supervision 

What can we offer you? 

  • An opportunity to help shape the transformation of Trinity Academy Grammar 
  • Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders and an extensive pastoral team  
  • Career progression and cross-trust working  
  • A range of staff benefits, including a Cycle to Work scheme, Electric Car scheme, reduced-cost health cover and access to the local government pension scheme. 

Our vision is to be the most transformational academy in England.  If you would like to be part of our journey we look forward to hearing from you.
