What skills and experience we're looking for
Following the successful restructure of our Inclusion Support Faculty, we are looking to appoint an Inclusion Leader, to act as Deputy Coordinator for children in care with responsibility for Mental Health and alternative provisions. The successful applicant will work alongside the Achievement Leader and the existing Assistant Head of Faculty, to shape and develop the support we offer. This is a role within the Inclusion Support Leadership structure and will be essential to the development of mental health across the school.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and ambitious person, who believes in the best opportunities for all learners. The faculty is exceptionally upbeat, forward-thinking, and innovative and one which is cohesive, team spirited and very well led. We are looking for someone who can play an active role in contributing to the already high standards within the faculty and develop our mental health provision, including conducting quality assurance of alternative providers and oversight of those students on reduced hours.
For the successful candidate, a commitment to raising standards and a passion for developing young adults is essential: this entails a commitment to all learners, to excellence for all, and a belief that a good school makes a significant difference to learners’ life chances, levels of attainment and the wellbeing of the community as a whole.
What the school offers its staff
We will ensure that the successful candidate has:
- A comprehensive induction including a dedicated mentor
- Continuous professional learning, development and improvement, including accredited SENCo qualification, if not already achieved
- The opportunity to contribute to raising standards for all our students in a true comprehensive setting.

health provision across the two campuses. We have 6% of our students with an EHCP against a National Average of 4%. We have 2 Resourced Provisions, one for dyslexia and one for SEMH needs. The faculty’s leadership team works across both campuses. The successful candidate must:
- Be willing to liaise and work alongside the Senior Leaders, other Provision Leads and
- teaching staff, to ensure that all stakeholders involved in a student’s education have an understanding of their provision and where expertise is shared widely.
- Be involved in reviewing the internal Inclusion referral process and attend these meetings, agree on strategy, collaborate through planning time and to action what has been agreed.
- Lead and participate in annual reviews.
- Liaise with Hampshire SEN, Transport and Virtual Schools team.
- Liaise with parents and disseminate information to the Inclusion and Support Team.
- Carefully consider the needs and provision for each student and make clear decisions about the intervention, provision and academic development of students with mental health needs, those with EHCPs and specific learning needs.
- Undertake quality assurance of Alternative Provisions.
- Plan for those on reduced hours provision and their reintegration back into school.
- Engage with external providers and agencies to find appropriate resources and provision to support students who are facing difficulties with their mental health.
- Be able to empathise with students whilst having high expectations of achievement and behaviour.
- Have good communication skills and an ability to clarify and explain instructions clearly.
- Be professionally discreet, have well developed interpersonal skills and a good sense of humour.
- Have the ability to build appropriate and effective relationships with staff, students and parents.
