SENCO job summary

St Augustine’s Roman Catholic School
SENCO – Special Educational Need Coordinator
Permanent
Full Time
Salary: L1-L5 £42195-46566

St Augustine’s has been successful over many years and is consistently oversubscribed. We invest heavily in our staff development and celebrate sustained results and outstanding pupil progress. We take pupils from right across the coastal area which makes us a truly diverse school community.

We are a smaller than average school (607 on roll) with a close, family atmosphere. We are ambitious for all pupils, and our calm and purposeful ethos of learning is frequently commented on from our school community and visitors. Staff know our students well and together we form a cohesive community.

Due to the quality of CPD, colleagues that support each other and a sense of fun and enjoyment we have seen our staff stay and develop – and as such our school has low staff turnover and high staff retention.

Our opportunity
We are seeking to employ a Senco to join our team of dedicated staff.
You will determine the strategic development of special educational needs (SEN) policy and provision in the school and be responsible for day-to-day operation of the SEN policy and co-ordination of specific provision to support individual pupils with SEN or a disability. You will provide professional guidance to colleagues, working closely with staff, parents and other agencies.

You will have
• Have a strategic overview of provision for pupils with SEN or a disability across the school, monitoring and reviewing the quality of provision
• Contribute to school self-evaluation, particularly with respect to provision for pupils with SEN or a disability
• Make sure the SEN policy is put into practice and its objectives are reflected in the school improvement plan (SIP)
• Maintain up-to-date knowledge of national and local initiatives that may affect the school’s policy and practice
• Evaluate whether funding is being used effectively, and suggest changes to make use of funding more effective
What we can offer in return:
• The opportunity to work within a school where our all of our staff are incredibly passionate about their subject area and teamwork.
• A warm, happy school where we value our Catholic ethos and have a philosophy of treating each other with kindness and respect
• A school that is highly regarded within North Yorkshire for not just our student’s outcomes but for the pastoral and ‘open door’ approach that is fully embedded.

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 Aishling Robinson on the email below arobinson@staugs.smccat.org.uk
