Are you a qualified or aspiring SENCo?

Join a school that has a remarkable 300 years of history behind it, and a bright future ahead. 

We are looking to recruit a SENCo to join us. This role would suit either an experienced and qualified SENCo or a teacher wishing to receive further experience, support and training toward gaining the National Award for SEN Coordination (NASCo). The in-school support provided will be matched by extensive, specialist support from a range of inclusion experts from across our network of schools. Within this role you will play a pivotal role in a committed team and make a real impact on the outcomes of our pupils.

This is made possible by our great teachers, which is why we offer tailored professional development to our staff at every stage of their career progression.

Regular coaching sessions and an ‘open door’ lesson policy ensures you receive extensive, responsive support and peer-to-peer sharing of best practice.

The academy has fostered a collaborative infrastructure which has instilled a strong sense of community amongst our staff. This is exemplified by the anonymous ‘buddy’ scheme, where staff are encouraged to carry out random acts of kindness for a fellow team member. From ‘Teacher of the week’ ceremonies to events and socials, your hard work will always be recognised at Burlington Danes.
