Support the strategic requirements of the school as we continue on our journey
The post carries a small teaching commitment and we are happy to accept applications from specialised teachers within all subjects.
As our new SENCO you will join a team of highly skilled teaching and support assistants who are making sure all our students have the right care and support in place.
We actively welcome interest from colleagues who already hold the National SENCO Award as well as from teachers (from any specialism) who have a keen interest in developing their career in SEN and inclusion.
Why join us
We know that recruiting into a SENCO post can be difficult as many SENCO professionals decide to stay in their current school through natural promotion. Indeed, we have done this successfully ourselves over the last three years. As a small family school within Whitby, we are able to nurture, develop and coach developing/existing leaders. We hope you are intrigued to find out more about us and consider (if needed) relocating to our coastal area – which offers a great balance between work and life styles.
Here at Eskdale we pride ourselves on operating as a true comprehensive, with inclusiveness at the top of our agenda, so we will look to you to engage students whose horizons don’t stretch beyond Whitby and the North Yorkshire Coast due to their circumstances.
As a new teacher and leader, we will invest in your future development as a teaching professional through our ‘Teaching Programme’. We are looking for someone who can grow and further develop into being a highly effective teacher and SENCO, as well as someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure all our students achieve their very best.
You will be supported in your role by working alongside our experienced SENCO who is primarily based at Caedmon College in Whitby.
Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about with students you love to help learn. To arrange a visit please contact James on the details below.
Our coastal offer and why teaching and living on the coast is great!
