September 2020

The governors are seeking to appoint a resilient and effective SENDco, who can share their enthusiasm and expertise with our success-hungry students and work with our dedicated staff in their pursuit of excellence. 

Shirebrook Academy has been housed in ‘State of the Art’ buildings since 2013. 

On 1st May 2017 we joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust) which further strengthens our capacity to improve opportunities for all our students and staff.

We are looking for a person with drive, emotional literacy and diligence to be able to give strategic direction and guidance to the Inclusion team and support our students to be the best that they can be. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a successful professional with leadership experience to make a significant contribution to the Senior Leadership Team and help to drive whole school improvement. You will already be a qualified SENDco or willing to work towards the National Professional SENDco qualification within the first 18 months in post. 

According to an African proverb, ‘it takes a whole village to raise a child’. Similarly, it takes a whole school to educate a child with everyone in the school community playing a vital role.  Educating a child is a collective endeavour, at Shirebrook Academy we stand and fall as a team, we celebrate each other’s success and we take collective responsibility and support each other when we fail.

This Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We are also an equal opportunities Employer.
