You will make decisions focused in a way that maximises children’s achievement and ability to develop. This is a great opportunity for someone who is calm, organised and resilient and who wants to help to make a difference to children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a school where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where pupils are listened to, respected and involved in as many decisions as possible.
