Lawnswood School is a thriving school with strong leadership and a dedicated and supportive team of staff.  We are looking for someone with enthusiasm, a ‘can do’ mentality, and the drive and determination to ensure that the students with whom you work make the very best of the opportunities available to them.  Lawnswood School can offer you a professional challenge and a rewarding opportunity, working with a collaborative leadership team that’s passionate about the progress and development of every student.

In order to accelerate outcomes and continue to embrace our diverse learning community we are currently seeking to appoint a dedicated SENDCO who is passionate about ensuring pupils with SEND achieve their full potential.

This is an exciting opportunity for an individual to join a school where all staff are valued to contribute their ideas in order to further bring about sustainable and transformational improvements.

The SEND and inclusion agenda forms a significant part of our thinking at Lawnswood as we continue on our journey to becoming an outstanding school within our community. 

 You will be an outstanding and dynamic teacher with high expectations and looking to further develop your career within your field, able to encourage and enthuse students to achieve their full potential and inspirational to colleagues and students – sharing best practice.

We can offer a school and senior leadership team that will allow you to be innovative, proactive and play an active part in our school improvement, tailored CPD with a strong commitment on developing individual career paths and opportunity to work as part of strong team dedicated to inclusion.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

We promote diversity and want a workforce which reflects the population of Leeds.
