  • You are an excellent communicator who can form positive relationships with children and parents;
  • You have developed programmes of learning;
  • You have liaised with external agencies and a range of other professionals,
  • You have coordinated the work of support staff;
  • You have a growth mind-set;
  • You are a patient, kind and caring person;

What the school offers its staff

In return we can offer you………

  • An enthusiastic, caring staff team who have high expectations of themselves and the children;
  • A supportive Senior Leadership team with a strong commitment to the school;
  • A comprehensive induction programme and opportunities for excellent, high quality professional development;
  • The opportunity to help develop the vision for children with SEND
  • A school where ‘Inclusion’ is central to our planning.
