You will play an active part in leading and delivering SEND strategies to ensure that each pupil develops their full potential. Your key responsibilities will include:

- Adopting the most effective teaching approaches to ensure the best outcomes for pupils with SEND
- Working with subject teachers to monitor in class teaching and learning activities, ensuring they meet the needs of pupils with SEND

Experience of successfully preparing pupils with SEND for public examinations is equally important, along with high level knowledge of the SEND code of practice and strategies to support the teaching and learning of pupils with SEND.
