• Inspirational, motivated and can lead and support colleagues

• Able to plan and monitor the quality of provision and interventions for children with additional needs

• Someone who has completed or has begun the National Award for SENCO

• An understanding of Local Authority SEND processes including HLN and EHCPs

• Can naturally and confidently engage staff in improving professional practice for SEND

• Dedicated, hardworking and talented colleagues and Governors

• Wonderful enthusiastic children
