  • Be able to inspire high quality teaching and learning, particularly in relation to SEND by modelling and striving for excellent practice.
  • Be able to ensure the best possible outcomes for children and young people with SEND; academically, socially and emotionally.
  • Be able to support staff to be continually reflective and able to identify and respond to pupils with SEND.
  • Be able to provide a good universal offer of high quality inclusive teaching and learning provision in all classrooms by effectively equipping staff with knowledge and skills. 
  • Have vision, passion and drive to raise attainment and achieve excellent outcomes for all pupils.
  • Be able to lead others across the team in providing the best possible learning for our pupils.
  • Be able to work independently, and as part of the leadership team, to continue to move the school forwards.
  • Have a desire to develop your own skills and career progression.
  • Be a positive role model for staff.

Professional qualifications required:

You will have experience, energy and enthusiasm that will enable you to make a strong contribution to the development of the school. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an exceptional individual to join the Senior Leadership Team at St John's Meads and directly influence the next phase of our development.
