‘Serving others, growing together and living life to the full’
Hope Sentamu Learning Trust’s vision

Our Opportunity

George Pindar School is an 11-16 community situated in Eastfield in Scarborough, which has just under 700 students on roll. Scarborough is easily accessible and whilst many of our current staff are local, many travel from York, Hull, Driffield and the surrounding areas.

Our staff are our greatest resource and we are proud to be a host school to Teach First, Ambition School Leadership and NPQ providers. Staff who have relocated or who have entered teaching through all routes have stayed with us whilst our support staff have successfully applied for internal promotions and careers in teaching – and for us that is a sign of a school on the up!

On the 1 March 2019, we officially joined the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust family of schools along with our fellow coastal partner Graham School. This is a positive step in our school improvement journey, which sees us working collaboratively sharing best practice, developing our staff, developing advancements on teaching, and learning and ensuring strong outcomes for our students.

We follow good educational practice and tested school improvement strategies, which will over the next three years see George Pindar School, begin to take its rightful place as a leading school in the area.

About this Role

We are looking to recruit a teaching colleague to join us as our new SENDCO who will work with key staff to strategically lead our direction, the continued development of inclusion/SEN provision and help raise standards of student attainment and achievement across the school.

We actively welcome interest from colleagues who already hold the National SENCO Award as well as from teachers (from any specialism) who have a keen interest in developing their career in SEN and inclusion.

Overview and career development recruitment incentives:
• An opportunity to support students who find learning in the mainstream school environment challenging.
• Friendly and caring schools where all stakeholders work together for the benefit of the children.
• A high level of support from staff and colleagues with the Hope Sentamu Learning Trust.
• Motivated, dedicated staff and a committed, active and supportive Senior Leadership Team.
• Improving schools, which support pupils to aspire to the very best, with a broad and balanced curriculum offer, collaborative learning and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
• A commitment to professional development and advancement opportunities within a growing MAT.
