Female Primary SENCO for January 2022

Durham School for Girls DohaQatar

Durham School for Girls Doha is seeking to appoint flexible and inspirational SENCO  to join our High Performance learning team school for January 2022

In Durham, we have several children requiring additional support and this role would be to lead and run intervention, IEPs and communicate with staff and parents. 

International teaching during this time is challenging and we are looking for new staff to address and grow from this experience. Currently schools in Qatar are working on a mixture of contact and online learning. The MOE is supporting schools to return to some normality and gradually returning to classroom learning. During this time we have had to adapt and support both staff and children in this different learning approach.

Durham School for Girls opened in 2019 and we now have nearly 1000 students . The school will expand again in 2021 with Year 11 and 12 and the first Year 13 students will start in 2022 with an expected growth to 1200 students.

Following in the footsteps of Durham School UK, Durham School for Girls Doha aims to continue the heritage of strong pastoral care, inclusion and individual progress that make the School “Distinctively Durham”. Within the school there will be a strong ethos based on the school philosophy and values. Centered around the girl’s individual development, we aim to ensure that we strive for a balance in both academic and personal, social development ensuring confidence for life.

Your role will be fundamental in growing and developing the Secondary department and hands on in the molding and design of the school. We are looking for teachers who are ready for the challenge, passionate about learning and have the vision and flexibility to become part of one of the most exciting projects in Qatar. There may be opportunities for leadership and responsibility, so please comment on that in the application.

Durham School for Girls Doha is the first British all-girls school in Qatar. Linked with the 2030 vision of empowerment for women, we aim to ensure an environment where girls can flourish and develop to reach their full potential. An finished and multipurpose campus provides the security for girls to develop individually, respect Qatari culture and values, and embrace the British system and methodology.

Being part of the Durham family, our pupils and staff can become part of the 600-year-old tradition and reputation of Durham UK. Although Durham School for Girls Doha works in a different community, a different country and a beautiful, modern building, the school culture that is Durham. A strong pastoral House system links to Durham UK and many synergies will unite the two schools, forming the sense of one school, two sites.

All Staff will be ready for the challenge of a new school and will be part of the school family and community. Like Durham UK, the staff will help to create and warm and secure learning environment where dedicated staff support and develop the girls in our school.

This is going to be an exciting new time and a chance for staff to be part of something old, and something new.

Application deadline: Interviews will be conducted throughout this term.
