Primary Schools' Supply Pool

Primary Supply Teachers

The primary supply pool is open to teachers who have successfully passed their induction period and have a further year's experience in primary teaching. It is used by over 65% of our primary schools, enabling them to cover vacancies in at least 95% of cases.

We offer National Pay Rates and never take a cut from teachers' salaries. You may find the scheme of particular interest if your contract is coming to an end, or if you are currently teaching part-time and would like some additional hours.
