Saint Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy, part of the St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi-Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a highly skilled and motivated SEN Administrative Assistant who will work as part of a very experienced team.
Your overall responsibility will be to provide administrative and clerical support to the SENCO therefore we are looking to appoint someone who is organised, flexible, with excellent communication skills and has experience of providing administrative support in a busy environment.
Situated in the beautiful Darley Abbey area on the outskirts of Derby, Saint Benedict is the city’s only Catholic Secondary school. We serve a wonderfully diverse community of students who come from over forty countries around the world and who come from all parts of Derby and beyond.
This is a great time to be joining us and 2019 has been a great year for the school. In our most recent inspection in May 2018, Ofsted graded us as Good in every category. We celebrated our best ever GCSE and A-level results this Summer with a Progress 8 score of +0.27 and 100% pass rate at A-level. As a Catholic School, the values of the Gospels underpin all of our work and a key part of our mission is to champion those in society who are disadvantaged.
We are most proud of the fact that our rapid improvement in outcomes has been in an inclusive and supportive environment, as Ofsted described ‘a distinctive feature of pupils’ behaviour in this school is their sense of a community and the care that they extend towards one another’. In addition to setting out a clear vision for school improvement we work hard to ensure that every child has their needs fully met by our outstanding SENCO and our Inclusion Team. As a community of professionals we are also highly supportive of one another.
Visits to the school are encouraged and appointments can be made by calling Ruth Darby on 01332 554295 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
