An exciting opportunity has arisen for a flexible, highly effective, organised and efficient SEN Administrator to join Trinity School. The SEN Administrator forms part of our SENCo team and will report to the Assistant Headteacher/SENCo.

You will be working in conjunction with another part-time SEN Administrator and between you, you will be responsible for ensuring the efficient and accurate organisation of all aspects of the school’s SENCo administration arrangements and processes. This includes contributing to the creation, development, implementation and operation of procedures and processes, acting as first point of contact for the SENCo team and being responsible for the timetabling of Learning Support Assistant support.
The successful candidate will be required to work under the professional direction of the SENCo to support learning activities for pupils, establish and maintain relationships with individual pupils and groups and deal with pupils’ therapeutic, pastoral and personal care needs.
A positive attitude and calm manner with the ability to organise, prioritise and deal with a demanding workload is vital. You will be an excellent communicator, be a team player and have excellent time management skills. Knowledge and understanding of safeguarding children is also essential.
