We are looking for a leader with vast experience to lead our Inclusion department, including LAC support, with tenacity, strength and compassion, preferably from Easter.   You will be part of a strong and cohesive, can-do staff team and will work in a school where we can see the difference we make to our students’ lives and life chances.  This post has arisen in preparation for the retirement of our current SENDCo and Inclusion Leader.  

We are looking for a leader who embodies our mission that every child benefits fully from the transformative power of education, regardless of their background.  We need someone with the skill to turn that desire into tangible strategies and processes that will help our students thrive.  

We are a successful school whose students make good progress, despite many challenges.  We strive for all students to be part of that success, despite any barriers they may have.  You will be resilient, values driven, highly organised and efficient and will be determined to help us to ensure that our nurturing, ambitious and rigorous culture of success is a reality for our most vulnerable students.  You will be well used to going the extra mile and you will be skilled at achieving the highest of standards of teaching, learning and behaviour, both yourself and across groups of staff.  You will be able to support and challenge all staff to do the best for our students.  You will have both the desire and experience to ensure that our focus is on teaching and learning and will have a vision of how to help our SEND and LAC students to thrive under the new curriculum.

To apply you need to do two things:

1. Write a letter of application of no more than two A4 sides, font no smaller than 12. In your letter address your experience, vision for leading Inclusion as SENDCo and how you meet the requirements of the role.
