The Role

An opportunity has arisen at Clacton County High School for the role of Deputy SENDCo working with an excellent group of colleagues within our Inclusion team and across the school. This post may suit someone currently working in either the primary or secondary sector.

This role brings an opportunity to work alongside a supportive and passionate SENDCo to fulfil the school's statutory obligations for students with SEND providing invaluable experience to further an individual's knowledge of SEND in a secondary school setting. We welcome applications from those who have already achieved the NA (SENDCo) and those who would be willing to enrol on this qualification as part of the role.

As a school, we are determined never to stand still and as a result of this commitment, we are seeking an enthusiastic member of staff with either primary or secondary teaching experience. We recognise that candidates with primary teaching experience may also be able to offer additional expertise to support those students working significantly below age related expectations.

We are seeking a motivated person to work alongside colleagues both teaching and non-teaching, to be a role model for all our students, but with a particular focus on supporting those who require assistance in overcoming any barriers to learning, so they are able to access the full curriculum in order to achieve their potential.

The Inclusion team at CCHS is committed to our guiding principles of 'Higher Expectations, Raising Aspirations, Transforming Lives'. The role of the Deputy SENDCo is to promote and instil these ideals, encouraging all students within their care to access the curriculum and engage with their learning and to build positive, respectful and lasting relationships with others to become successful and valued citizens.

We would be delighted to welcome your application if you feel inspired to be part of the CCHS experience, and have a commitment to understanding who we are, what we value and the culture we are creating. We want to recruit the best staff and invest in them believing this will lead to the best education for our students, our commitment is to both our staff and students.

If you have:

• Qualified Teacher Status in the UK (primary or secondary experience considered).

• Experience and knowledge of SEND.

• Exceptional organisational and communication skills.

• A shared passion for the ethos of making a real difference to young people with the ability to motivate, inspire and have high expectations of students.

• A commitment to safeguarding and child protection.

If you are:

• A dynamic person looking for an opportunity work within a secondary setting working with and supporting children with SEND.

• Enthusiastic and committed, adaptable and positive.

• Excited to be part of a committed and caring Inclusion team supporting children to realise their potential.

…. then CCHS is the school for the next step in your career.
