Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is your quality assurance system? +

    For more information on our Quality Assurance System, click here
  • Are your staff all qualified teachers? Have they got QTS? +

    On our bank of staff we have both Qualified and Non-Qualified Teaching Specialists (approximately 60% do have QTS). If a school requires their staff to have QTS we can accommodate this, however many of our schools have experienced Outstanding gradings from Ofsted with our staff that do not have QTS. As it is not a legal requirement to have QTS to cover PPA Time, it is simply down to each school’s preference. Our priority is that all our staff are degree level qualified or equivalent in their subject areas, have a minimum of two years’ teaching experience and are trained in First Aid, Safeguarding, Inclusion, EAL, SEN and Behaviour Management.
  • Do your staff have DBS, safeguarding and first aid? +

    Yes, all staff have Enhanced DBS checks, have filled in disqualification forms, and have training in Prevent, Safeguarding, and First Aid.
  • Have your staff worked in primary schools before? +

    Yes, all our staff have experience teaching in Primary Schools.
  • Do you do assessments? +

    Yes, our assessments are carried out bi-annually on our secure online assessment system. We will simply need class lists from your school to enable us to input them into the system.
  • What do you do if your staff are off sick? +

    Our sickness policy states that staff must inform us before 7am if they are going to be off sick that day, and we then endeavour to allocate a substitute member of staff for that day. In the unlikely event that we cannot secure cover, we will inform the school with plenty of notice and issue a credit note.
  • Can you guarantee me I will get the same person week in week out? +

    Yes, our staff contracts are extremely rigid and we pride ourselves on consistency, staff are aware of this and they like to become an integral part of the school.
  • How do I get feedback? +

    Your Curriculum Support Advisor (at our HQ) will feed back to you and will also be contacting you for your feedback. They will also be observing lessons termly and carrying out termly review meetings with you.
  • What is your programme? +

    Our programmes are specific to each subject, for more information on each subject, please contact us and we will be happy to send you our Unit Frameworks.
  • Is the content in line with the National Curriculum? +

    Yes, all our content is in line with the New National Curriculum and it is constantly being updated.

This week we found out that there is going to be additional money put into each and every school! This is money that hasn’t been accounted for and therefore extra. Many schools will now be looking at what and how they can spend this money but at the same time asking if what they want is affordable in the long term? Why put something in place that the children love for it to be taken away again when the funding runs out? Making it sustainable is a must and Primary PPA Cover are able to offer a variety of subjects in line with the national curriculum but with specialist staff. School teachers are already superheroes, let them have their time out of the classroom to plan not worrying about what they are coming back to.
