Job description
SENCO (in addition to class teacher job description)

Protocol Education is a specialist provider of recruitment services to the education sector. No matter where you are on your career path, Protocol Education can help you take the next step.

I am delighted to be supporting a wonderful Primary school in Barking and Dagenham, 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 lovely school to work at. They are a twice Ofsted Outstanding Academy in the heart of East London and one of the highest attaining Infant schools nationally. The Headteacher is an NLE and they are currently in the process of becoming a Sponsoring Multi Academy Trust, something they envisage will give employees even more career opportunities and room to become Leaders and progress in their chosen paths.

A SENCo, or special educational needs co-ordinator, is the school teacher who is responsible for assessing, planning and monitoring the progress of children with special needs.

Main Duties:

• To keep a profile of children with special educational needs.

• To observe and support children as appropriate on the special educational needs profile.

• 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.

Please note: We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance 'Keeping Children Safe in Education'. 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.
