PPA cover provides teachers with valuable time to work on assessments for the children in their class and to plan and prepare their lessons - helping them to provide their students with the best possible education. However, finding cost-effective and reliable cover can be difficult.
Active Superstars know how important it is to find the best, most effective cover for your school’s PPA time, and how difficult it can be to find sustainable and cost-effective external cover from a reliable supplier.
Active Superstars are a unique sports coaching organisation that gives children of all abilities the opportunity to get active and develop new skills. We use sport and physical activity to inspire children to be active throughout the school day, enhancing their ability to learn. Active Superstars can help you to make the most of your PPA cover by providing professional sports coaches to get your children active.
Things to look for in your search for PPA cover
When looking for someone to provide your PPA cover, we believe that there are a number of important factors to take into consideration to ensure that you get reliable, good quality cover:
we recommend that your PPA cover has a minimum of 12 months experience of working in a school environment.
Make sure that the supplier you chose provides quality lesson plans and ensure that observations are carried out to ensure every child’s potential.
Check that you will be provided the same cover supervisor for the entirety of the academic year, if children are familiar with them they will likely achieve more and look forward to their sessions.
Make sure that your PPA cover company is reliable and has good time management. The last thing you want is for your relief to arrive late, or not at all.
- Behavior management
Make sure that your cover supervisor is fully trained in behavior management so that they can adapt to the needs of your children
- OFSTED training
Make sure your cover supervisor knows what is expected of them should OFSTED make an appearance at one of their cover sessions.
- Ongoing CPD training
Make sure the company that you select to provide your PPA cover carries out regular CPD training with their staff to ensure they are up-to-date with all the latest requirements.
When hiring a sports coach for PPA cover ensure that they have a level 2 or above qualification.
Make sure that the company you select has suitable public liability insurance.
