If you are in education to make a real difference to young people’s lives, Fearnhill is for you. We are on an exciting journey with significant improvement evident across the school, growing popularity with parents and an environment for professional development that is second to none. Achievement at all key stages is on a marked upward trend and the school has responded with creativity and determination to the challenges of Covid-19.  We now have an opportunity for an inspirational and innovative leader of inclusion to fulfil the role of SENCo and ensure inclusive provision across the school.

This strategically significant post will suit a candidate with some middle leadership experience (though this is not essential), who is looking for whole school responsibility as preparation for senior leadership. You must have a passion to see every student achieve to the best of their ability and be resolute in challenging barriers to their success.

You will be:
• Familiar with current legislation around provision for students with SEN (though a SENCO qualification is not essential; full training will be supported for the right candidate)
• An analytical thinker who can analyse data to plan and deliver effective intervention
• An excellent classroom practitioner with an understanding of how children learn
• A team player with excellent interpersonal skills

You will be responsible for:
• Managing provision for students with identified SEN
• Leading intervention in core subjects, working closely with heads of subject and monitoring the progress of key student groups, including the higher attaining
• Leading and managing a team of dedicated, experienced and enthusiastic teaching and operational staff
