  • Has the ability to lead, motivate and inspire the Learning Support team, working with teachers, support staff and external agencies.
  • Can continue to develop an exciting and challenging curriculum targeted at students who have difficulty accessing mainstream school.
  • Is an outstanding classroom practitioner with the ability to lead by example.
  • Can analyse and interpret data to establish tailored intervention strategies.

At Litherland High School, we believe in providing our students with excellent and exciting educational opportunities based on the core values of respect, a broad and balanced curriculum and high aspiration, where there is no cap on ambition building the skills for successful lives. We are proud to have achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) with Centre of Excellence status for outstanding levels of inclusion and best practice. We are resolutely on our journey to provide an outstanding education for our students.
