Due to the retirement of the current Principal, the Governors of Broomfield SILC are looking to recruit a passionate and experienced leader who has a commitment to special educational needs.

We are seeking a person with a proven track record of successful leadership in a large specialist provision who is inclusive in their style and truly committed to the development of the whole child. You will also have an up to date knowledge of mainstream education and be experienced in translating this into a specialist setting.

Under the guidance of our current Principal the school has made significant progress and we as a governing body are proud of the excellent provision in our unique setting.

We are looking forward to welcoming someone with the ambition and drive to take the school forward as we start a new chapter in the development and progression of the SILC. Our new Principal will lead a large staff team of hard working and committed staff, which includes a well-established and effective middle management team.

We can offer:

  • A large mixed age school for pupils with a range of different needs and abilities
  • A great working environment for staff where everyone is valued, included and treated with respect
  • An outward facing organisation, working closely with city wide partners and beyond
  • Amazing pupils who love coming to school and are encouraged to learn the skills they will need for life outside of school.
  • An enthusiastic and supportive governing body that put the interests of the children first and are committed to the continual improvement of the school.
  • An opportunity to build your own leadership team
  • The Governing Body is considering a proposal to seek academy status in order to form a Multi Academy Trust
