We are looking for a skilled SENDCo who is an excellent classroom practitioner and is able to demonstrate high levels of effectiveness in the classroom.

They need to have strong organisational, leadership and communication skills, and should be able to offer advice, support and motivation to children, staff, parents and the wider community.

They will lead and manage the school’s provision of SEND within a busy school.

They will need to demonstrate their ability to deliver the best possible outcomes for all learners, provide evidence of successful multi agency working and will preferably already hold or be working towards the National Professional SENDCo Qualification.

The role will also be to assist in provision for pupils’ wellbeing and provide support for pupils displaying social, emotional and behavioural needs by working in partnership with staff, families/carers, professionals and pupils in a school context. Monitoring, support for pupils and staff and working with families to support school pupils’ behaviour and wellbeing is fundamental in this role.

The SENDCo works under the direction of the Headteacher whilst being expected to work under less direct supervision and independently manage behaviour incidents, plan and deliver activities and work with families, staff and external agencies. Line management of our Early Help Leader Advisor is a key element of the role. Although not class-based, this post does require the SENDCo to work alongside children. Our SENDCo is a key member of our Senior Leadership Team. The successful applicant will work as part of the TLP SEND and Inclusion Network.

If you would like to join a friendly and supportive team, and work with children who are well motivated and want to learn, then we would like to hear from you. Visits to the school are very welcomed and encouraged. Alternatively, we are happy for prospective applicants to have a conversation with a member of the leadership team regarding the role, the school or the Trust.

This post will ideally commence from April 2023, however we would be willing to postpone the start date to September 2023 for the right candidate.
