Portchester Community School





Portchester Community School is a medium-sized, forward thinking 11-16 Community School and enjoys a good reputation locally.

We are a 'good' school and are very proud of our pupils and their achievements.

Within the school we have a resourced provision for physically disabled students who are integrated fully into the life of the school, which brings a richness and variety to the curriculum and adds to our extensive after school provision.  As a community school we also have a nursery and a pre-school on site, and we are the providers of elderly day care.

The school also continues to pride itself on its caring ethos and is widely recognised for its Rights, Respect and Responsibility (RRP) work.  Our community engagement work has been a powerful vehicle at the school for promoting positive relationships and cultural awareness.  Many students have had exceptional opportunities to travel and engage on new and exciting experiences both in the UK and abroad.

We currently have the following vacancy:

Cover Supervisor
Permanent, Part Time
30 hours per week (alternative hours negotiable)
Term-time only plus one week (40 weeks)
Grade C
Actual Salary: £13,106 p.a.to £17,025 p.a. (dependent on hours)

We seek an individual with excellent communication skills and a flexible approach to supervise classes during staff absence and to assist departments with all aspects of student progress.  The role will include supporting planning and assessment, helping students to develop personal and communication skills and encouraging good student behaviour and work.

The ability to work in whole class situations is a key aspect of this role.

GCSE Grade C (or equivalent) in English and mathematics is essential.

The successful candidate must be capable of maintaining the highest professional standards and place the child at the centre of everything they do. 

If this describes you then we are interested in hearing from you.
