· preferably hold the National Award for SEN Co-ordination (and, if not, be prepared to undertake the NPQ SEN qualification)

· be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge and understanding of the current SEN Code of Practice

· have a clear understanding of provision mapping, early identification of children with SEN, assessment tools and successful interventions to drive progress.

· possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be well organised and flexible

· have the skills effectively to liaise with staff, parents and external agencies to co-ordinate and ensure continuity of provision.

· be able to motivate and support staff and pupils

· line manage a team of the LSAs that support pupils with needs, carrying out Performance Management Reviews.

· have high expectations of children's achievement and behaviour

· be committed to working in close partnership with parents/carers, other Trust Schools, governors and the wider community.

We can offer you:

· A friendly and supportive team working together with like-minded schools ensuring the best outcomes for everyone.
