What the school offers its staff

About our Academy

The Charles Read Academy is in Corby Glen, Lincolnshire and it serves the villages between Stamford, Bourne and Grantham. In 2016, we were ranked one of the most improved secondary schools in the country in the performance tables and were proud to be judged 'good' by Ofsted in all areas in February 2022.

‘This is a school where staff want the very best for all pupils. There is a strong sense of community. Leaders are ambitious for what pupils can achieve. The values and culture of the school are woven through every aspect of school life. Pupils are proud of the school and want to do well. Behaviour in the school is excellent. The atmosphere in lessons is calm. Pupils and staff treat each other with mutual respect. Bullying is rare. Staff deal with it well.’ Ofsted.

We have a strong sense of purpose and are fervently committed to the achievement of every individual. We aim to provide a high-quality education in a safe, happy, caring and focused environment. We encourage all students to embody our values of confidence, resilience, ambition, courage, respect and aspiration. We are intent on developing a love of learning amongst our students, offering them a broad and balanced curriculum, enhanced by a range of enrichment activities designed to support their personal growth. We encourage all students to take responsibility for their own learning.

We are very ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We are very proud of our community and believe we offer something genuinely different and exciting for those who join us. Our rural setting allows us the privilege of working in a stimulating and dynamic school that, combined with our co-educational ethos and smaller size, engenders a culture that genuinely cherishes individuality, aims to instil creativity and independence and celebrates open-minded thinking. Underpinned by our values of Confidence, Resilience, Ambition, Courage, and Aspiration we are student focused and we believe that there are no limits for outstanding learning and outstanding achievement. We have high expectations of our students and staff, high aspirations for them and demonstrate complete belief in them all.

Our schools work as a team and achieve great things through these partnerships. Our subject specialists, our trust-wide intranet, a common curriculum and our online learning resources all help us share knowledge and expertise simplifying work processes allowing staff to focus on high quality teaching.

We value our staff highly and take work/life balance seriously; we realise a happy staff is an effective staff. The leadership of the academy is determined to create an environment where teachers can carry out their core role of delivering excellent lessons. We have a clear and simple behaviour policy that is easy to administer. If action is needed beyond the basic classroom routines the pastoral and senior teams take the burden away from the teachers, conducting detentions, following up and dealing with parents on your behalf.

In addition to this, teachers are trusted to be professionals and as such we have:

  • No unannounced observations.
  • No lesson grading.
  • Meeting and INSET day time for joint team planning.

Continuing Professional Development and Support

We aim to bring out the best in you as well as in our students and we understand the importance of quality CPD. CRA offers a range of development opportunities, with both internal and external providers for staff at different stages in their career. We are responsive to staff needs supporting them with training and development so that they can deliver excellent teaching.

Being part of the David Ross Education Trust enables us to collaborate with a range of staff from across the trust including Trust wide subject leads, the SEN and Safeguarding teams and the Secondary community as well as accessing CPD from HMIs and Ofsted trained staff. We are always keen in developing all our staff in which ever career direction they wish to go.

Ours is a warm and compassionate community where students explore their creativity and discover their passions working alongside staff who are committed to enriching the lives of their students. We really believe that we are starting to do something really special for our students.

Further details about the role

About the role

We require, for a September 2024 start, an enthusiastic and highly committed SENCO teacher. As SENCO, you will take a creative approach to working with our pupils according to their educational needs, ensuring delivery of the school curriculum in a way that maximises children’s achievement and ability to develop.

The successful candidate will have high expectations of what all children can achieve. Regardless of barriers they will believe that all children will thrive if given appropriate support to access and succeed in the full curriculum. Our SENCO will be innovative and will coordinate the delivery of SEN provision across the whole school supporting all learners to achieve to the best of their abilities. They will lead from the front and will manage a dedicated SEND team, some of whom have additional whole school responsibilities.

The successful candidate does not necessarily need to have worked previously as a SENCO but will need to have experience of working successfully to support pupils with special education needs.

They will need to be willing to take The National Award for SEN Co-ordination which will be funded by the academy if they don’t already have it. This course will form a large part of the CPD and support for personal growth in the role. In addition there will support from the trust and from SLT within the academy. We will arrange a mentor from another school to support the in-coming SENCO.

The key features of the role are:

  • Overseeing the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEN policy;
  • Coordinating provision for children with SEN;
  • Advising on a graduated approach to providing SEN Support;
  • Liaising with parents of children with SEN;
  • Liaising with other schools, educational psychologists, health and social care professionals, and independent or voluntary bodies;
  • Being a key point of contact with external agencies, especially the LA and LA support services;
  • Liaising with potential next providers of education to ensure a young person and their parents are informed about options and a smooth transition is planned;
  • Working with the head teacher and school governors to ensure that the school meets its responsibilities under the Equality Act (2010) with regard to reasonable adjustments and access arrangements.
  • Ensuring that the school keeps the records of all children with SEN up to date.
  • Working with SLT on the Academy Improvement Plan in relation to students with SEN needs
  • Monitoring and evaluating provision and progress.
  • Working with staff supporting them to try a variety of teaching approaches with students in their class with SEN needs.
  • Delivering intervention sessions
  • Teaching where appropriate (Approx 10 hours teaching)
