All members benefit from the strong ethos and quality governance.

Being members of the trust has formalised the collaboration between schools sharing a vision to provide the best possible outcomes for all our children. 

The successful candidate will have experience of working with young people with a range of special educational needs and disabilities and be able to undertake psychological assessments and interventions in all our schools and phases and be willing to support the Christian ethos of our Trust.

You will work closely with our Trust SENCo, Principals & Headteachers, school based SENCOs and other senior staff promoting the emotional and social wellbeing of our young people from 4 to 18 years. Working in partnership with parents, teachers, social workers and doctors in a variety of ways you will support children who are experiencing problems which hinder their successful learning and participation in school and other activities. You will be experienced in offering a range of appropriate interventions, such as learning programmes and collaborative work with teachers or parents.
