Inclusion Manager job summary

We are a popular and heavily oversubscribed 11–16 mainstream school with the additional expertise and facilities to include two focused SEND provisions, for young people on the autistic spectrum, and for those who are deaf and hearing impaired (ARC and Deaf Academy). We have also developed a base on site to support pupils with social, emotional and mental health needs. Furthermore, our small and bespoke sixth form provision (WOA6) caters for students in Years 12 and 13 who have EHCPs.

We are an outward facing school and work closely with our local community – families, schools, businesses and community groups, with whom we share a common priority - our pupils are front, back and centre of every single decision we make at WOA.

At WOA, we believe that every child has the potential to achieve and we expect nothing but the best for each and every one of our students. Through our curriculum, we aim to provide an excellent education for all our students; an inclusive education which raises aspirations and brings out the best in all of them and prepares them for success in education and later life. Our curriculum is progressive and designed to provide children with the core knowledge they need for success along their learning journey.

We have a team of dedicated, specialist curriculum, SEND and student welfare staff who work together to ensure that the needs of each individual child can be met. Every single member of our team teaches at Wodensborough and this includes the Principal. We passionately believe that good teaching plays one of the most important roles in shaping and creating successful futures for our young people.

We are looking for a dedicated and talented Inclusion Manager to join our experienced and supportive Pastoral Team. We are looking for someone who believes (as we do!) that whatever your starting point in life, this should not dictate your future destination. We want someone who believes in social mobility. Someone so passionate about improving the life chances of vulnerable young people that they are prepared to go above and beyond (as we do!).

As part of the Ormiston Academies Trust we can also offer wider benefits including networking opportunities, enhanced CPD and Employee Benefits Package.

We believe that we all have an important part to play in raising standards. We truly believe that what we do in our classrooms changes lives. Why not come in, meet the team and join us on our journey?
