SENDCO (Assistant Head teacher) Required for September 2019

Leadership Scale L1-5

The Bridge Short Stay School are looking to appoint an exceptional individual to fulfil the role of SENDCO. This role has been newly created as a discrete post and is an excellent opportunity for the right person to help shape the provision for students with SEND at the school.

The Bridge works with students who have been permanently excluded or who are without a school place. Rated as ‘Good’ in all areas by OFSTED in May 2018 we are passionate about providing a second opportunity to students who have struggled in education previously. The school is based on two sites, in Ellesmere Port and Northwich and this role will work across both sites.

As a member of SLT, the successful candidate will provide additional leadership to the school and help to drive forward further improvements in provision. In return they will have access to ongoing professional development and be supported to develop their own leadership potential to develop their career.

Expertise in teaching in a Humanities subject would be an advantage, but isn’t essential.

Visits to school and informal discussions about the role are encouraged; please contact the school on 0151 3376873 or email to arrange a visit.

Closing date for applications is: Monday 29th April 2019 5pm

The Bridge Short Stay School is committed to safeguarding the welfare of all young people and expect staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
