We require from 1st January 2021, an inspirational, committed and student-centred SENDCo to join this lively and ‘outstanding’ 11-18 Foundation School. You will oversee and lead a cohesive team in supporting SEND students across the school and be expected to work closely with parents/carers, external agencies and staff, to further improve their outcomes. The SENDCo will provide guidance in the area of SEND in order to secure high quality teaching and the effective use of resources to bring about improved standards of achievement. The post is a key appointment in terms of enhancing and ensuring the positive life chances of students with SEND.
Bishop Heber High School (the ‘Heber’) has over 1,300 students, including over 250 in the Sixth Form, and serves three villages and surrounding hamlets in this beautiful area of south-west Cheshire. The School is located a 20 minute car journey from Nantwich, Wrexham and Chester. It has easy access to the Wirral as well as North Shropshire. The School enjoys an excellent reputation in the locality and a large number of families opt for Bishop Heber from outside the catchment area. In fact, there are over 450 students on roll who come from other parts of Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales. In 2015 the School underwent a £5 million redevelopment of the site and there are strong community links through the School’s Library and Sports facilities.
We are a Foundation School and formerly an International Specialist Languages College which underpins an exciting international dimension both in the School and through its curriculum. We have also been awarded the Full International School Award.
