Thomas Deacon Academy
Trust: we are honest
Discipline: we never give up
Aspiration: we want the very best

Thomas Deacon Academy (TDA) was one of the first Academies to be created and continues to thrive through our core values of Trust, Discipline and Aspiration. As we enter the exciting new phase of our future we continue to offer an aspirational learning environment for students from the ages of 7 to 18 years old. Our modern facilities, TDA Junior, Sixth Form Study Centre and 43 acre campus allow us to provide the ultimate in educational choice.

Most recently, July 2015, Ofsted graded the Academy as ‘Good’ in all areas and we are moving forward in our continued journey towards ‘Outstanding’.

The Role

As a Cover Supervisor your role will be to teach classes to cover short term absence of teachers. You will teach the lesson that has been set by the usual class teacher, taking full account of the school behaviour policy and ensuring the quality of learning experience for students within the class.

As a Cover Supervisor you will need to cover a range of subjects and be able to think on your feet and adapt quickly to the work provided. You will also need to be able to show authority in the classroom and manage student behaviour, using the Academy policy.

This role would be suited to anybody considering a career in teaching as there may be possibility for support from the Academy to obtain teaching qualifications. Previous experience is desirable but not essential.

The Trust offers:
• excellent salary package.
• fantastic training/CPD opportunities in a friendly supportive environment.

• use of Academy facilities (including a gym and onsite car parking).

• An inclusive and collaborative approach.
• A talented, highly motivated, committed and professional team of colleagues, both within the school and across the trust.
• An actively supportive Local Governing Body and Trust leadership.
