Job description

Meadow Park Academy is a vibrant, welcoming school in the heart of a diverse community in the Tilehurst area of Reading, the county town of Berkshire.

We believe primary school days should be one of the most exciting periods of anybody's life, as new skills and knowledge are gained every day. Our teachers deliver an engaging curriculum both inside and outside the classroom, at our very own forest school, providing exciting experiences that make learning fun.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, passionate SENDCO to join this dedicated team as we continue on our improvement journey.
Our newly appointed SENDCO would work alongside our Inclusion Team to lead and manage provision for pupils with SEN and disability in our school. Ideally the successful candidate will have completed the SENDCO qualification. If you are a good teacher who would like to move into being a SENDCO we would consider this option and support your training.
