If so, we want to hear from you. Following a leadership review the opportunity exists for a suitably experienced, inspirational professional to spearhead our drive to ensure that all our students with additional needs access high quality teaching and learning and that all of our students maintain excellent attendance as standard. From the start of the Summer term, or September 2022 for the right candidate, you will strategically lead highly motivated and capable colleagues who are committed to supporting our students both academically and pastorally. You will be willing to undertake aspects of the role of SENDCo in partnership with our experienced SENDCo who is reducing their hours.

Purposeful and relevant interventions to support students with barriers to attendance and learning are delivered to provide strong foundations upon which all students can build. You will have exceptional interpersonal skills, a warm professional rapport and a genuine empathy for students’ needs.
