Saracens High School is a brand new secondary school opening in September 2018 for 150 Year 7 pupils, growing each year until the School is full in 2024. The School is located in the Colindale area of North London. 

This role would be ideal for a current Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO) or an ambitious teacher with a passion for supporting SEND pupils.

The SENDCO will be responsible for inclusion across the school, and ensuring all pupils with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities have exceptional support and provision. They will play a key role in the leadership of the school during our first year, supporting the Principal and other leaders to shape and embed the vision.

The School and the curriculum you create will be underpinned by the Saracen’s values of:

  • Discipline;
  • Hard work;
  • Honesty; 
  • Humility. 

You will create a distinctive culture and philosophy so that from the moment someone enters your department they will know this is where the learner is empowered to 'be the best that they can possibly be', their individual abilities are recognised, and coaching for life skills, as well as academic excellence is at the core of all that we do.
