  • Is committed to their own professional development and reflective in their practice
  • Demonstrates high standards in themselves, their work, and their expectations of others
  • Is a qualified and experienced SENDCo – or aspiring SENDCo - who is able to develop high-quality SEND provision
  • Has the ability to inspire trust, confidence, and respect from pupils, staff, and the community.

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to be based outside the classroom for 50% of your working time
  • The chance to make a real difference to our Sheffield primaries
  • A hardworking, experienced team committed to promoting high achievement
  • Supportive and effective leadership
  • Access to the Teacher Pension Scheme and our Employee Assistance Programme
  • Continued professional development and training opportunities.

We are dedicated to fostering a more diverse and inclusive organisation, as we believe it is crucial for our future success. Our commitment is rooted in a strong set of shared values, namely scholarship, curiosity, and tenacity. These values not only shape our culture but also reflect our vision and what we hold dear as Astrea.
