Job summary

We would strongly encourage any interested applicants to discuss the role with the Trust CEO, Sarah Watson. Whilst we need a SENCO at Court Fields School, we acknowledge there may be applicants who wish to extend their experience to Strategic leadership. We are keen to invite candidates at both levels as our priority is to ensure that our children with SEND, our most vulnerable children, get the very best education we can offer, and have bespoke and appropriate provision. We are keen to hear from you if you have ambition for children with SEND and want to work with a forward-thinking, dynamic and collaborative team.

We will give you opportunities to develop leadership and management, to work with some of the best teachers in the country and to learn leadership from some of the best in the profession. You will work with our Senior Leadership Team, Trust SENCO & SEMHCO, as well as all our teachers of SEN. You will be able to make use of your experience, but also have the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge, ready for the next stage of your career.
