Based at: Birmingham Children’s Hospital (but can be based at other locations within James Brindley)

James Brindley is a stand-alone Academy based in a wide variety of locations across the City of Birmingham. In the course of a school year we educate over 3,000 pupils for periods ranging from a few days in hospital to several years in one of our teaching centres. The majority of our pupils have complex medical needs and many have been out of education for a significant period of time prior to joining the Academy.

We require a SENCO to teach pupils within the hospital provision to the highest standards. The role involves teaching pupils with medical needs who are unable to access mainstream education at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Many of our pupils have gaps in their education and we strive to implement creative teaching strategies to reduce the impact of educational disadvantage, enabling all our pupils to access learning and make expected progress. We offer a full-time curriculum to young people from EYFS to KS5 and our aim is always to enable them to ‘close the gap’ and to exceed expected progress during the time they are with us. You should be passionate about developing and supporting the needs of the whole child and committed to enabling all pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for a qualified teacher who has tenacity, positivity and experience of working with SEN & medical need pupils. You should also have a National Award for SEN Co-rdination and a track record as a consistently good practitioner.

Closing date: midday 4th July

Interviews: 7th July
