We believe that Learning Changes Lives! We are seeking a SENDCo to lead our team of Learning Support Assistants and work within the Inclusion Team to provide a range of opportunities to students with additional needs. 

The successful candidate will have the ability to deliver some small-group intervention teaching and to take responsibility for assessing student needs, devising learning passports and interventions and  meeting the needs of students with EHCPs. 

The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy opened in September 2014 and moved into its brand new whole-school rebuild in September 2017. We are a growing institution and, as such, are in the process of developing a wide ranging inclusion provision.  The SENDCo will be expected to play a full part in achieving the Academy’s vision “to be an outstanding learning community where together we learn to know, to do, to be and to live together”.

The Academy received a “Good” in all aspects following its first Ofsted inspection in March 2017 and is now working towards being graded as “Outstanding” at its next inspection. The Academy also benefits from an on-site nursery open to both staff and the general public which also has a grading of “Good” from Ofsted as well as a fully equipped fitness suite. 

We are committed to high-quality, collaborative and relevant CPD for all members of staff to enable and support them to make the best possible progress in their role and in their future career development. As a growing school there are many opportunities for ‘in-house’ progression. 

The Academy is located within a short walk of Therapia Lane Tram Stop, mid-way between East Croydon and Wimbledon Mainline Stations and underground connections, both of which are approximately 15 minutes by tram from the school.
