What skills and experience we're looking for

Chorus Education Trust in Sheffield is seeking a multi-skilled, energetic individual with excellent leadership and communication skills who will drive our inclusive culture. A background of working with SEN students is essential, and, if you are not already a qualified SENCO, a willingness to complete the training. Colleagues with a primary background are welcome to apply.

Responsibilities will encompass all aspects of our SEND provision throughout Silverdale School, managing the work of a dedicated and committed team of Teaching Assistants whilst also building and maintaining effective working relationships with our students and their families, all support and teaching staff, and external agencies.

The successful candidate will be an excellent classroom practitioner with high expectations; their teaching will be a combination of small groups of students with SEN and mainstream classes in their subject specialism. They will work closely with our deputy SENCO and the wider staff team to ensure we are meeting the needs of our SEN students across all aspects of school.
