Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO) and class teacher

Reporting to: Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher

Responsible for: SEND HLTA and the inclusion team

Required for January 2024. 

Sheringham Nursery School leads the Manor Park Community Children’s Centre and is a National Research School and Stronger Practice Hub.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an inspirational and highly motivated SENDCo and class teacher to join our talented team to work closely together to maintain high expectations for all as we continue to champion Inclusion across our setting.

You will have experience of teaching playfully, making learning fun and enticing with regard to the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, the interests of individual children and their learning and developmental needs. This role is ideally suited to an experienced SENDCo looking for a new challenge in a supportive Maintained Nursery School. However, as our SEND provision is well developed and organised this position may also suit an excellent, ambitious teacher wishing to further their leadership skills and experience, make a difference and be willing to commit to completing the NaSENCo qualification at the earliest opportunity with the support of the school.

Applicants must be committed to inclusive education, improving outcomes, and overcoming disadvantage. They must be compassionate and able to communicate effectively, forging positive relationships with families, colleagues and external agencies and provide accurate and clear advice.

This post represents a superb career opportunity for a motivated professional who has a passion for early years, innovation, and creativity to play a significant part in shaping the future of our School. If you are seeking a highly rewarding position, enriching the lives of children who attend, then we are keen to hear from you.
