Reflection Room/Classroom Cover Supervisor

Scale 5 actual starting salary £19,884 per annum (pay award pending)
37 hours per week
Term time plus 5 inset days

We are looking for Reflection Room/Classroom Cover Supervisors to join our excellent, friendly school in Chelmsford.  The Reflection Room is a space where students who may have made poor or disruptive behaviour choices are sent for a period of time to have the opportunity to reflect on their behaviour and understand that there are consequences to poor behaviour.  The successful applicant will have an important role in school ensuring that students in the Reflection Room work and behave appropriately and supervising classes during a teacher’s short-term absence as they complete the work set by a teacher. Cover supervisors do not teach students - they help them to understand what it is they need to do to complete the work set, they manage students’ behaviour, keep the learning environment purposeful and safe and deal with any issues as they arise. 

Previous experience is not essential as full training will be given.  However, the ideal candidate is likely to have good general knowledge, be able to demonstrate the ability to engage students in learning, be confident applying the school’s policies in a firm and fair manner and be an excellent communicator and role model.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  Appointments will be subject to references and enhanced DBS checks.

Additional information, including a job description, person specification and hours of work, is available below or by contacting Mrs Hampton by phone on 01245 241141 or email

Closing date for applications: midday on Friday, 29 September 2023

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early and encourage candidates to complete and return applications as soon as possible
