Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust wishes to appoint a person to lead Saint Paul’s SEND provision for students with Autistic Spectrum Condition, including a designated Resourced Provision for 12 pupils. Our Resourced Provision caters for pupils with Education, Health and Care Plans who require a specialist environment within a mainstream school to support their access to the curriculum and activities offered by the school.

We are looking for an exceptional and inspirational teacher who is passionate about inclusion for pupils with additional needs, and will be a true champion to really drive and improve outcomes for some of our most vulnerable pupils.

  • Excellent career development opportunities, including CPD opportunities from the onset.
  • Entry into a competitive pension scheme

The successful candidate will:

  • Be enthusiastic and motivated with a passion for inclusion and committed to developing aspirations, a growth mindset and a thirst for further learning.
  • Have the drive to lead the school’s SEND provision for pupils with ASC to enable these students to thrive socially and academically
  • Ensure that all students attending the Resourced Provision secure excellent educational outcomes through direct teaching, delivering intervention and by supporting them in mainstream lessons.
  • Deploy teaching assistants effectively to ensure students make the best possible progress
  • Have the skills and knowledge to undertake Social & Communication Pathway assessments for students across the school
  • Have experience and understanding to lead EHC plan reviews for pupils within the Resourced Provision

  • Demonstrate commitment to ensure students in the Resourced Provision access a range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities
  • Have strong interpersonal skills to establish effective relationships with staff, pupils, and their families.
  • Enjoy working closely with a range of external agencies to develop and deliver personalised support programmes for students with additional needs and challenges.
  • Be open to new ideas, committed to working as part of a team and of course have a good sense of humour.
  • Have strong moral and ethical principles and values.
  • Promote the Catholic ethos of Saint Paul’s and model teachings in everyday practice.
  • Be flexible and adaptable, willing to train and be prepared to deliver a range of responsibilities as the needs of Saints Paul’s and the SEND department evolve, commensurate to their role as TLR postholder and at the direction of the Senior Leadership Team.
