Your new role
From September 2021 we are opening a new Inclusion department, Kingsway Avenue. This will provide a bespoke curriculum for some of SEND students, including those with C&I, C&L, Sensory/physical and some SEMH. Kingsway Avenue students will attend foundation lessons with their foundation tutor, in “Kingsway Avenue” itself which is a purpose and go to specialist lessons within Kingsway Park High School. They will have a strong pastoral support network though our Foundation Co-ordinator, their nominated TAs and our Inclusion Team and a range of tailored options for work experience, social development and personal progress.
Additionally we have a number of students with EHCPs or with SEN Support who access a full mainstream offer, a large team of TAs and specialist resource and a deeply inclusive ethos, on which we want to build.
We are looking for a SENCo with the experience and passion to oversee our full SEND offer.

• Have significant strategic influence on the school, our culture and ethos
• Have a talented team of teachers, TAs, admin and pastoral staff
• Have a strong working base within the school

Our ethos is that every child can succeed and every child adds value to our school. If you want to lead an SEND offer, evaluate your success by finding every child’s potential and join us on our “Mission Inclusion” journey, we would love to hear from you.
