We seek an inspirational and experienced SENCO who enjoys working with children to join our staff team.  You should be determined, resilient, take responsibility for helping improve the lives of our young people and be able to manage a complex workload.

We are proud of our college, our talented and highly motivated staff and students.  Our staff team work tirelessly to ensure that teaching is the best it can be and everyone has a role to play in this.  We support each other and there is an open, friendly and collegiate atmosphere where new members of the team are welcomed and supported.

The key task of the SENCO is to ensure that Special Educational Needs (SEN) provision is both efficiently and effectively managed. The range of responsibilities delegated to the SENCO with regard to provision and coordination is outlined in the job description in the applicant pack.  It is expected that all legal and statutory requirements are met for students with SEN via the SENCO.

The core purpose of the post is that the SENCO, with the support of the Headteacher and Governing Body, takes responsibility for the day-to-day operation of provision made by the school for students with SEN and provides professional guidance in the area of SEN in order to secure high quality teaching and the effective use of resources to bring about improved standards of achievement of all students.

The SENCO has a dedicated suite of rooms which are situated above our conference suite.  The current SEN team comprises the SENCO, four HLTA's, one of whom specialises in English support, one who specialises in Mathematics support and one who specialises in Speech and Language Therapy.  Two individual needs assistants who are assigned to a studentl in year 8 and a student in year 10; one subject specialist teaching assistant and two apprentice teaching assistants.
