Head of SEND

Consilium AcademiesSalford

Consilium Academies was approved as a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) and an academy sponsor in January 2015. We have eight schools split across three hubs who are supported by a strong central team. We do not have a lead school and instead operate a partnership approach with a strong governance structure which includes a Members Board, Trust Board and individual Local Governance Boards.

“Partnership, Opportunity and Integrity”

‘Consilium Academies will provide an inclusive partnership with our communities, where lives are enriched by providing care, experience, and opportunity, and where every student benefits’ from the same opportunities to succeed’

At this exciting time in the Trust’s development, we are seeking to appoint a Head of SEND to work in collaboration with our schools. The Head of SEND will be an ambassador of best practice across the Trust. 

You will be expected to be creative, innovative and motivated to support the senior leaders to deliver a high quality and effective SEND service.  You will be a highly proficient education professional with a strong track record of managing statutory services concerning children, young people, and their families. 

You will be an expert in SEND and have extensive knowledge and experience of applying the policies and resulting processes, best practice and statutory regulations relating to children and young people with SEND. 

You will need to be flexible as this is a trust -wide post, which will involve travelling to academies in Salford, North East and South Yorkshire.

You will need to be a fully qualified teacher and hold a high level SENDCo qualification, and ideally have significant experience of working within an alternative provision setting.
