I am delighted to be supporting a wonderful Primary school in the Leyton area, in their hunt for a SENCO for the next academic year. This is a full time position from September for the remainder of the academic year. The school is a 'Good' School and outstanding leadership from leaders and governors has brought about rapid improvement since the school became an academy.

Main Duties:

• To support and advise Key Workers, Learning Support Assistants etc. as appropriate, in how to include children’s needs in the setting.

• To liaise with settings and schools (reception) including assessment centres (Acorn), Children and Family Centres etc.

• To liaise with other professionals from outside services and external agencies e.g. Area SENCOs, Pre-school Education Team Teachers /

Educational Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists, etc.

• To arrange, organise and review support for individual children.

• To keep Key Workers and Learning Support Assistants up to date with SEN. and inclusion issues and to encourage personal development through courses and INSET.

• To meet with parents regularly in order to maintain good relationships and to keep parents informed about their child’s progress.

• To respond to changes in legislation/practice from government and the Local Authority.

• To review individual children’s IEPs termly as appropriate.

• To review statements via annual and interim review meetings.

• To develop and share knowledge of resources (equipment, books. materials and knowledge of possible strategies.)

For immediate consideration, please email your up to date CV to rbegum@protocol-education.com.

In reward for our candidates hard work and commitment, we provide competitive rates of pay, a refer a friend scheme, candidate awards and end of term celebrations and access to Protocol’s online CPD portfolio.

As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
