What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you an experienced or aspirant Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator looking to make a difference? Are you a school leader committed to improving outcomes for all children and developing your own practice?

City Academy Whitehawk is a vibrant two form entry school, proudly serving its East Brighton community. We are a Good school with an Outstanding Early Years (Ofsted 2018). Following the retirement of our highly regarded SENDCo, we are looking for a skilled, committed professional with the resilience and passion to enhance our diverse, dedicated team. Sustaining and enhancing our inclusion provision is a cornerstone of the ‘Highest Expectations For All’ motto that drives our practice.

The successful candidate must be able to work with the skill, resilience and compassion that our busy school environment demands, promoting equity and supporting learning effectively across the whole 3-11 years age range. Our Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion will be supported in maintaining our current provision, continuing to build strong relationships with all stakeholders, and finding child-centred approaches that best support the pupils in our care to make excellent progress.

Our Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion will be appointed on a full-time basis, attending weekly Professional Development Meetings, Senior Leadership Team Meetings and working closely with our Deputy Headteacher and Welfare Manager as part of our High Needs Triad. The successful candidate will lead one of our dynamic learning teams alongside our two Assistant Headteachers for Quality of Education.

What the school offers its staff

In return for your commitment, passion and resilience, we are proud to offer you:

  • A high functioning, highly skilled and supportive leadership team who are devoted to improving outcomes for all children and all staff
  • Respectful, polite and engaged children who greatly value their school and learning
  • A spacious, well equipped and resourced learning environment
  • An established and effective bespoke curriculum and accompanying pedagogy guides
  • Excellent training and professional development opportunities
  • A team of happy, vibrant and energetic teachers and support staff
  • A proven record of exceptional welfare and pastoral support
  • A culture of collaboration and support within our Aurora Academies Trust network
  • Well established working relationships with our external agency colleagues
