Who are Supply+?
Supply+ is a unique Teacher Supply & Recruitment Service. We offer regular supply work with fair rates of pay for teachers and reasonable costs for schools.
A collaboration between the Cornwall & Plymouth Primary Heads Associations, our prime motivation is to improve the life chances for all our children. Both are Community Interest Companies serving our member schools.
We are committed to safeguarding the children in our schools and operate the highest standard of safeguarding checks so schools can be sure we are meeting all the statutory requirements of Keeping Children Safe in Education. We ask our teachers to commit to our code of conduct.
What our teachers think of us...
"Thank you all so much for getting me back into teaching again. You've been a great team to work with, and supply has really helped me figure out where I want to be and what I want to be doing."
