What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you an experienced primary or secondary based SENDCO looking to progress your career in a calm and happy school where inclusion is at the heart of everything we do? This is an exciting time to join us; we have fabulous facilities, are the first choice for local families because of our inclusive and whole child led approach.

Our special provision supports 5 students per year group with additional learning needs who join us from across the beautiful county of Rutland and Leicestershire. We also support around 30 students who have EHC plans. These well-behaved and hardworking students will benefit from your expertise to help them fulfil their potential.

We are a small trust of three schools (primary, secondary and sixth form), all within one mile of one another, who work closely together to enable every student to do their best. You would be based at Catmose College and would lead our team of SENDCOs who support students in our special provision, mainstream and those needing the additional support of an EHC plan.

If you are interested in finding out more about the role, please get in touch with Claire Pugh, our SEND Vice Principal, (cpugh@catmosecollege.com) who can arrange a time to discuss the role and a visit to see for yourself why this would be such a great next step for you.

Catmose College is an oversubscribed secondary academy school on Huntsmans Drive in Oakham, Rutland. The majority of students are drawn from the county town of Oakham and surrounding villages, although many are attracted from a wider area including Leicestershire and Melton through parental choice.

The College is one of the highest achieving in Rutland and Leicestershire. Our Ofsted report in February 2012 rated the College ‘Outstanding’ in all categories. We offer a broad range of experiences beyond the classroom to build independence, resilience and leadership skills that are critical for success in adult life.

We believe in the traditional values of education; that students do best when they are happy, behave well and are engaged in purposeful activity. Our approach blends high expectations with innovative practice to ensure that all students are able to achieve their potential. The College is about much more than just academic success, our ethos is one that embraces the whole person, not just what they accomplish in lessons but everything else that ensures they are ready for the challenges of the adult world. For example, students partake weekly in the ever-popular Electives programme, where lessons finish early to allow time for students to participate in a vast array of over 90 activities and learning, from Caribbean Cooking to Cricket, and Pottery Throw Down to Trampolining.

Students also benefit from an extremely wide array of trips and visits; in previous years these have included a performing arts trip to Liverpool, a photography trip to Iceland, cultural visits to Italy and Spain, a German exchange, a visit to the WWI battlefields and much more.

We pride ourselves on offering a bespoke approach to students’ needs, whether they are more able or need some extra support. Music, Sport and Academic Scholarships are awarded annually to students who can demonstrate excellent ability in their chosen area. The scholarships are designed to recognise exceptional talent and to provide the facilities, resources and staffing to allow high-ability students to achieve their potential.

When making decisions at the College, our guiding principle is simple, ‘Would it be good enough for our own children?’ By ensuring that the standards of everything we do meets this benchmark, we ensure that the quality of services we offer are exceptional.
