Reporting to: Deputy Headteacher
Location: The Birley Academy, Sheffield, S12 3BP
At The Birley Academy, we believe that learning is our most important activity: and that’s equally true for our students and staff. We’re passionate about self-improvement and we go the extra mile to make sure that lessons are relevant, purposeful, engaging and rewarding. An excellent CPD package supports our people at every stage of their careers, from training through to headship, and as part of the L.E.A.D. multi-academy trust we enjoy comprehensive backing and can offer exceptional prospects.
Significantly strengthening our Senior Leadership Team, you’ll ensure that we realise the full potential of our amazing students – and our modern campus in south-east Sheffield. Building on our strong, respectful teacher-pupil relations, you’ll continue to develop the culture of high expectations and even higher achievement, backed by rigorous self-evaluation and continuous improvement. You’ll also work closely with stakeholders including parents, local governors and local businesses to place the Academy at the heart of the community, opening up countless opportunities for both our students and your colleagues.
Above all, you’ll do whatever it takes to keep us at the cutting edge of educational best practice – so we need a true visionary. As a qualified teacher and experienced school leader, you’ll be passionate about collaboration, deeply committed to CPD and adept at giving students the skills and confidence to succeed.
As SENDCo you will have the understanding and skills necessary to not only ensure that all statutory tasks are carried out in a timely and efficient manner but that they are effective in ensuring all adaptations are in place for students to access an ambitious, broad and balanced education; whether they are in provision provided by our Integrated Resource, our mainstream provision or through alternative provision. You must share our belief that learning is lifelong – and bring the tenacity to make your vision reality.
