The SENCO is line-managed directly by the Founding Principal and is directly responsible for ensuring that pupils who are registered as having, or show symptoms of, Special Educational Needs are identified and then supported as fully and appropriately as possible across all year groups. The role holder will deliver one-on-one or small group support themselves initially, whilst also establishing a thriving SEN department which will grow with the school.

Some of the responsibilities or the role will be: 

•    To support individuals and small groups of students. 
•    To work alongside the class teachers to help to identify pupils who may have Special Educational Needs through the use of initial in-house diagnostic tests and refer children to an Educational Psychologist for diagnostic testing whenever necessary. 
•    To work collaboratively with colleagues to ensure all SEN pupils’ needs are met fully at all times, also by creating, preparing and implementing Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) for pupils identified as having Special Educational Needs. 
•    To ensure the details of all ILPs are recorded on iSams and updated regularly and are shared appropriately with class teachers. 
•    To arrange and attend meetings with parents and teachers. 
•    To advise the teaching staff on the support for SEN pupils through targeted and specific differentiation, including by leading regular INSET for staff on SEN matters and by participating in the drawing of the school development plan.
•    To undertake other tasks as may be reasonably designated by the Founding Principal from time to time. 



You will be able to demonstrate experience in coordinating and delivering outstanding SEN provision in an academically ambitious environment, and in working collaboratively with a team of dedicated educators to design and implement personalised learning plans and inclusivity strategies.

The successful candidate will be providing one on one or small group support to students with SEN, whilst also building the foundations for a thriving department which will grow with the school. As such, the ideal candidate would have a strong background in Special Education, with a proven track record in coordinating and delivering SEN provision in an academically ambitious environment.
