Trinity School is a dynamic, forward thinking and oversubscribed mixed Church of England learning community for pupils aged 11-18. Teaching is motivating and fun, and learning opportunities are not confined to the classroom; we offer a range of educational opportunities for all our pupils. We seek to challenge our pupils’ perceptions and aim to equip them with the skills to be independent and resilient learners. The school is a member of the Trinitas Academy Trust, a collaboration of one secondary school and five primary schools.
We are looking for a dedicated, well-qualified and enthusiastic SENCO to join the team and lead in the coordination and development of the SEND provision across the school, from January 2019. As SENCO you will liaise with the SLT, Heads of Departments, parents and carers and external bodies. You will line manage and lead a team of dedicated colleagues, including the Teaching Assistants, to ensure effective resources are provided to bring about improved standards of achievement for all pupils.
What you will need to succeed:
Candidates must be passionate about helping pupils with SEN to achieve their full potential within the mainstream setting and committed to providing a high standard of pastoral care. The successful candidate should be able to deliver excellence in SEND provision to ensure quality first teaching. This is an excellent opportunity for a suitably well-qualified and experienced candidate to work with senior colleagues to build a vibrant and outstanding SEND department.
Trinity School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and all staff and volunteers are expected to share that commitment. Please note that the successful applicant will require an enhanced DBS check.
