We are seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to supervise whole classes during the short term absence of teachers.  Cover can be across all phases of our all-through school although our Cover Supervisors tend to specialise in certain age groups.  This post is likely to be both primary and secondary age but with more of a focus in secondary. Successful candidates will also be required to support the administration needs of particular curriculum areas in the school.  They may also undertake invigilation duties during internal and external examinations.

The post holder will have daily contact with pupils and staff and therefore experience of working with young people is essential. The post holder must have the ability to relate effectively to all adults and young people.  

Successful candidates must be confident in setting high expectations of conduct in the classroom. Experience would be desirable although training is available for the successful candidate. 


Buxton School is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children.  The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS Disclosure.


Please note CVs will not be accepted.  For an application pack and further details, please download the details from the school website or contact Stacey Bell, PA to Executive Headteacher at

Equal Opportunities
Waltham Forest is a diverse borough where diversity is valued and is integral to both, service delivery and employment of its staff. The Council is proud of its rich mix of communities and as the largest employer in the area, it works hard to respond to the changing needs of its population.

We use our statutory duties on race, gender and disability equality and best practice in respect of age, faith and sexual orientation to ensure equality of opportunity in the workplace.

The Council is committed to meeting its 4 equality objectives contained within the Waltham Forest Council Equality Plan 2012/2015:

- Promoting equality of opportunity

- Opposing all forms of discrimination, intolerance and disadvantage

- Ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels.

- Providing fair, appropriate, accessible and excellent Services to all.

Respecting Diversity is a core Council value.
