The 4 Day Week Campaign believes it would “dramatically improve the lives of teachers”. We are always looking for new ways to improve everyone’s work/life balance at The Westleigh School and we are excited to have been asked to be part of a trial of the 4-Day teaching week for staff whilst continuing to receive full-time pay, which will commence 2023/2024.

We are seeking an individual to work under the direction and instruction of senior staff to provide specific support to the school in the monitoring of external examinations.

Supervision of Examinations:

  • Ensure that the candidates have correct papers.
  • Ensure the correct identification of all candidates.
  • Deal with extras candidates not on the register.
  • Ensure candidates are aware they are under exam conditions, retrieving mobile phones etc.
  • Read erratum notices.
  • Notify candidates of the start of the exam.
  • Record the start and finishing times of exams.
  • Open and distribute papers and any other authorised materials to candidates.
  • Ensure attendance register is completed.
  • Supervise candidates in a quiet and unobtrusive manner
  • Respond to candidates queries in accordance with the exam regulations.
  • Supervise any candidates who may need to leave the room in accordance with exam regulations.
  • Supervise "clash" candidates between exams.
  • Distribute additional paper/equipment as required

Our ethos is ‘Aspiring and Achieving Together’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring The Westleigh school is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Westleigh School is a great place to learn and a great place to work.

Colleagues will have access to a large range of well-established training opportunities, such as a fully funded L5 Instructional Coaching qualification or Accelerated Leadership training, for those aspiring to Middle Leadership. Outstanding teachers will also achieve Trust Professional Advocate designation, which provides exciting opportunities to support colleagues within both The Westleigh School and across other SET schools to share best practice. With this brings the opportunity to engage in the cross-trust peer review and Trust CPD programme.
