  • Cover a club, if the teacher you are covering was due to run a club that day.
  • Mark/assess work in line with the school’s assessment and marking policy.
  • Offer written feedback, through email to the class teacher, copying in the Deputy Head, outlining the school day.
  • Development of teaching materials for The Galaxy Trust Central Team use, if no cover is required on a particular day under the direction of the Executive Head Teacher.
  • Keeping a detailed diary of teaching duties (including location).

As a cover teacher within The Galaxy Trust, you will be expected to undertake the full range of duties associated with being a qualified class teacher, which includes being flexible to the varying needs of a school.

The role is open to any teacher on the Main Pay Scale.  You must be flexible and open to last-minute changes.
