What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors are looking to appoint an experienced, caring and dedicated teacher who currently holds the National Award for Special Educational Needs Co-ordination or is willing to undertake training to achieve the qualification. We are looking for applicants who are looking to make a positive difference, enthusiastic and committed to the aims of SEND and capable of initiating and developing effective strategies which enable our SEND pupils to achieve their potential.

  • be committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for all children.
  • be able to communicate well with colleagues, parents and pupils.
  • implement a range of strategies for engaging and extending all learners who have identified needs
  • co-ordinate liaison with school staff, outside agencies, parents and the Local Authority.
  • Support and monitor the teaching and learning for SEND/vulnerable pupils across the school.
  • be prepared to apply for additional funding to support pupils with high levels of needs.
  • be prepared to become fully involved in the life of our school and community.
  • be confident in using IT as part of teaching and SEND coordination.
  • be part of the Middle Leadership Team and will report to the Headteacher/Senior Leadership and Governors regarding targets, progress and achievement of SEND pupils and vulnerable learners.
  • support the Designated Safeguarding Lead for Child Protection and Safeguarding across the school as required.

What the school offers its staff

We can offer:

  • A working environment in which everyone is valued.
  • Resources and training/CPD to enable you to carry out your role effectively.
  • A hard-working, trusting and supportive team which has the learning, environment and well-being of our children and staff at the heart of everything that we do.
  • Children who love learning.
  • Links with local, supportive schools through the consortium.
  • Coaching & mentoring from a former SENDCO.
  • Support from our AHT who leads behaviour and inclusion across the school.

Further details about the role

Interview date will be Wednesday 11th January 2023 and will consist of a presentation task, lesson observation and interview.

Due to the nature of the role we will be looking to recruit experienced teacher(s) at TMS M3 – UPS1 level and the role will come with an additional TLR Allowance for SEND (currently at £2,270 per annum). Job share of this role may be considered for the right candidates.
