Teaching Supply Staff
Situations can arise where classes need to be covered by supply staff. These range from staff illness or emergencies to staff training. We will always aim to:
- Minimise adverse effects on children’s learning and progress
- Provide continuity in the curriculum
- Support cover staff with clear guidance of expectations
In the first instance or in an emergency TA’s will be used to cover staff absence as this does provide the best continuity for the children in terms of known relationships, knowing children’s needs, knowing planning and abilities etc.
Supply cover staff will be monitored so we can build up a register of effective teachers for each year group.
