Charter Academy is one of the most improved schools in the country, after undergoing a transformation that was recently praised by former Prime Minister David Cameron. Join our school to help us shape brighter futures for our students.   

This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate trainee or qualified SENCO to lead, develop and support effective practice for our pupils with identified barriers to their learning (e.g. special educational needs, physical disabilities, EAL) to ensure that their learning needs are addressed effectively to allow them to make progress in line with Academy expectations. We believe in providing a first class education and giving every pupil the opportunity to go to university or pursue the career of their choice.   

This role would equally suit a qualified SENCO or an outstanding teacher committed to training to become a qualified SENCO.   

The ideal candidate will: 

  • Be QTS qualified; •
  • Have or be committed to gaining SENCO qualification; •
  • Be passionate about their subject and a committed team player; •
  • Be an outstanding teacher in their subject area; •
  • Have the resolve to make a real difference to the lives of our students; •
  • Be committed to Ark’s ethos of high expectations and no excuses   

We were recently awarded a Pupil Premium Award for our work in providing a high quality education for students from low income backgrounds.  This would not have been possible without great teachers, which is why we offer the best training and support for all of our staff at every stage of their career.   

Staff wellbeing is priority at Ark Charter Academy. All meetings are scheduled within the working day and our teachers have more free periods than local authority schools.  

As SENCO at Ark Charter Academy, you will be part of Ark, an international charity and one of the UK's most successful multi-academy trusts, with a network of 35 schools in 4 locations across the country.  Benefits of being part of the Ark network include: 

 • A salary 2.5% higher than the main scale teacher salaries 

 • Twice as many training days as standard and network-wide events with Ark               colleagues, held by the best minds in education  

The deadline for applications is 11am on Monday 5th March 2018.   Ark is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
