Rarely Cover is an integral part of the National Agreement and is designed to raise standards by freeing teachers and headteachers from tasks which do not require their professional skills and expertise, and enabling them to focus on their core function of teaching and leading and managing teaching and learning.
The current annual limit for teachers is 38 hours of cover with no weekly or termly limit specified. Under the new legislation, headteachers need to ensure that cover for absent teachers is shared equitably among all teachers in the school (including the headteacher) taking account of their teaching and other duties, and of the desirability of not using a teacher at the school until all other reasonable means of providing cover have been exhausted.
Capita Education Resourcing has seen a significant increase in demand for supply teachers and support staff as schools implement arrangements to cover their supply needs.
