A fantastic opportunity is awaiting you; the chance to design and shape innovative and creative SEND practice in a new all-through academy.
Having appointed exceptional candidates for the first two years of opening, King’s Academy Binfield (KAB)and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) are now looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative SEND specialist to play an intrinsic role in our new all-through academy in Bracknell Forest.
KAB opened in a superb building in September 2018 with 120 Year 7 students. In September 2019 a further 150 Year 7 students, along with year R and nursery students joined the academy. Also in September 2019, KAO, a brand new 1 FE primary school a mile away, opened with Year R and a mixed (for this year only) Year 1/2. KAB and KAO will continue to grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. Both academies are run cohesively sharing the same leadership, staff, values, curriculum, opportunities and expectations of excellence.
Whilst a main scale role initially, there will be increasing opportunities for leadership roles within the academy as the school expands. Potential is as important as experience. We would fully support the right candidate to undertake the National SENCo award. The successful applicant will ideally be based within our primary phase but will be active within the secondary phase too.
Applicants should be excellent teachers of SEND and have a strong understanding of the best strategies to enable all our students, but especially those with additional needs, to thrive in their learning. They will have the ability to motivate, inspire and lead students to excel. The successful candidate will be a team player and will get stuck in and involve themselves in the wider aspects of academy life. A genuine commitment to our ‘whatever it takes’ ethos is essential to enable every young person at KAB and KAO to thrive.
King’s Education separately operates British schools abroad, educating over 4,000 students in countries such as Spain, Latvia and Panama, offering exciting opportunities for genuine international collaboration.
King’s Academy Binfield and King’s Academy Oakwood are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
