This involves making sure that the class is following the work that the teacher has set for them in the lesson plan and also making sure behaviour is excellent by following the school's behaviour policy. Lesson plans are always already set; it is the job of the cover supervisor to engage the entire class in a way that means the work set is completed with minimal disruption.
