Are you passionate about inclusive education and keen to work as part of a large ‘Outstanding’ inclusion team? 

Chestnut Park Primary School is looking to recruit a SENDco for 2-3 days per week to work within the inclusion team.

Our inclusion team includes an Inclusion Lead for EAL and PP children, ten THRIVE practitioners, a full time behaviour support lead, an ELKLAN Speech and Language Teaching Assistant, a fortnightly speech therapist, a ‘Hive’ lead ( a school developed SEN base) and an Early Identification Teaching Assistant.

We believe every child should be inspired by a rich and varied curriculum which focuses on establishing the highest standard of basic skills, whilst nurturing independent learners and thinkers.

We can offer you:

• The support of GLF Schools and the opportunity to be part of an inspirational, growing and dynamic organisation
• A chance to work in a diverse, inclusive, vibrant and fast growing community with excellent transport links
• New top of the range facilities to aid Teaching and Learning.
• A supportive senior management team and wider staff body within GLF Schools
• Recognition of previous school continuous service.
• Excellent CPD opportunities and career progression

All of our staff benefit from professional development opportunities within the GLF group.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please call the school office on 020 3750 6090 or email to arrange a tour with Headteacher, Esther Brooks.
