We have a vacancy for a SENDCo to join us in September. St Bede's has a good track record of ensuring the academic and pastoral development of all students. We are looking for someone who is able to further strengthen our work in this area.
Our SENDCo manages a Learning Support Team in which there are; a Deputy SENDCo; three Senior LSAs; an EAL Co-ordinator; and eleven other Learning Support Assistants. The team is supported by a dedicated SEN administrator.
We see it as everyone's responsibility to identify, to plan and to make provision to meet the needs of special needs students, and to evaluate progress to ensure that these needs are met. The learning support team works to support all staff in this work, by providing guidance, by working to support identified students in the main curriculum, by assessing students, and by making specialist plans and provision. We currently have 29 students with EHCPs (Wave 3) on the school register and around 50 students on Wave 2.
