Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) - St Ursula's E-ACT Academy


We know just how important it is to think big and to help break those glass ceilings faced by young people today. Together we can encourage our pupils to step out from their comfort zones, build self-esteem and broaden their horizons.

 

We have an exciting opportunity for a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) who can provide a strategic and operational oversight of provision for those pupils with SEN. You will need to have experience with the use of RP and working with children who have a range of special educational needs. You will also need to hold a NASENCo qualification along with your Qualified Teacher Status (both are essential for the role, however we will consider candidates who are willing to work towards the NASENCo qualification).


There is a real buzz about St Ursula's E-ACT Academy and the rate at which our pupils progress, but don’t just take our word for it and come and see us for yourself! We always encourage candidates to get in touch with questions and requests for academy visits so you can see how fantastic our academy really is, please contact the main school reception to arrange a visit.

 

For a full description of the role, please refer to the job description and job specification.
