GLC Tilbury Pioneer Academy is part of the larger Gateway Learning Community (GLC): a partnership of local primary and secondary schools committed to working together to achieve the highest educational standards for the whole community and is a friendly school that values teamwork and high achievement in all areas of our work with young people. 

We are looking for an inspiring SENCo who is passionate about children and expect the highest possible standards to support them.

This role is fully supported by the group SENCo and in collaboration with other GLC SEND Coordinators.
