“Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today” is the theme that runs through the work of both staff and students at The Misbourne.  This is a good school with great students. We want each one of them to aspire to be the best they can be without any limitations and it’s important to us that our teachers feel the same.  Ability to teach English or Science would be advantageous but not essential. 

What we can offer you:

· A strong team ethos, with caring colleagues

- An experienced SEND Manager and motivated team of specialist TAs

- High quality, bespoke training to help you develop your practice

· Superb students with supportive families

We are looking to appoint either an experienced or aspiring SENDCo to support us on our journey towards becoming world-class. We will provide appropriate training and support to gain accreditation for the national SENDCo qualification. You will be well-supported by an experienced SEND Manager who oversees the day to day running of the department and a team of specialist TAs.

The successful applicant will be a well-qualified teacher who is confident, engaging and resilient, with the ability to motivate our students, the SEN Team and their families. We believe passionately that there are no barriers to learning that cannot be overcome for any child and this role is central to us realising that ambition.

All teachers have the opportunity to develop their own teaching and leadership qualities, through our bespoke CPDL programme, following a relevant Masters course, NPQML/SL, SLE programme or off-site training of their own choosing through our bespoke professional learning programme.  We have a strong focus on education research to inform our practice and link closely with the Teacher Development Trust, NACE and SSAT to name but a few.

Our staff tell us they genuinely feel like part of a team; a team who are striving to help each student flourish both academically and personally. That’s important to us, if we are going to embody our moto of “developing tomorrow’s leaders today” and if you are our kind of teacher, it will be important to you too.

It’s an exciting time to join us as we embark upon a new school vision, in which you will play a key role. Our students and staff are keen to meet you and show off our fantastic school, so why not come and visit before you apply? We very much welcome interested candidates to contact us to arrange an informal visit.

The closing date for applications is 9am on Thursday 23rd May 2019. To apply please write, no more than 2 sides of A4, outlining why you would be a suitable candidate to be SENDco at our school.
