It is a 1 form-entry Catholic Primary School which has high aspirations for all learners.

  • Ensuring the statutory responsibilities for all students with an EHCP
  • Complete successful applications for EHCP's and liaise with external professionals.
  • Supporting other staff members understand SEN
  • Monitor progress towards targets for pupils with SEN and manage interventions across the school.

As a SENCO, you will also be required to:

  • Liaise with other leaders including phase leaders, curriculum leaders and the Head Teacher & EHT to ensure that good progression and effective learning are in place.
  • Organise, and lead, regular year group meetings and organise an annual parents' meetings.
  • Ensure that record keeping, assessment and reporting are effectively carried out both within your own subject area of responsibility and within your key-stage/phase.
