Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Deputy Safeguarding, Cover Teacher

Salary: Up to Spinal M6 £39,006.00 pro rata

Start date: ASAP

Paxton Academy Sports and Science opened in September 2014 with just Reception pupils and has been growing year on year. We currently have pupils up to year 4. We aim to deliver a core offer to our pupils which includes a wide array of learning opportunities through our extended provision and successful partnerships with other schools and organisations. Our curriculum is biased towards the teaching of our specialisms, ‘sports and science’ where the teaching of health and well-being is key. In addition pupils benefit from specialist teaching in modern foreign languages.

Pupils will leave us equipped with a firm grasp of key basic skills, a broad knowledge base and personal interests, shared moral values, excellent communication skills and the tools to be successful in secondary school and beyond.

With an extended day provision our expectations are high, both of our pupils and our teaching staff and with this, there is a collective drive for all-round excellence from the whole school community.

This is a wonderful opportunity for an experienced teacher to shape the Inclusion agenda in our new and growing academy. We are looking for a professional who is passionate about Special Education Needs and Disabilities and who would be committed to getting the best outcomes for pupils in true partnership with parents.

If you have a good knowledge of the SEND code of practice, a strong work ethic, the ability to be part of a team, we would like to hear from you.
