  • To contribute to raising standards of student attainment
  • To share and support the Academy's responsibility to provide and monitor opportunities for personal and academic growth.


  • Work under the direction of the SENDCo to devise and provide appropriate support for students to facilitate an optimal learning experience
  • Work as a member of a designated team, supporting departments and building professional relationships across the academy
  • Take part in CPD activities in relevant areas including subject knowledge and teaching methods applied within the academy
  • Utilise the management information system effectively to maintain appropriate records and assist with tracking students' progress to inform teaching and learning
  • Communicate appropriately and effectively with parents and other external agencies
  • To take part in marketing and liaison activities such as Open Evenings and Parents' Evenings and play a full part in the life of the Academy, supporting its mission and ethos
