Empowering Learning are supporting a Multi-Academy Trust with UK wide exposure. They are seeking to appoint an Assistant Principal, who will also work as the SENCo with one of their secondary schools based in Essex. This will be a permanent role from January 2021.
The school is currently rated as "Good" (Ofsted 2016), therefore they are determined to move to "Outstanding". Their overall Progress 8 score in 2019 was +0.43, placing them within the top 9% of schools nationally, and ranking as one of the highest performing non-selective schools in Essex.
Historically, SEN and Pupil Premium students have performed well in the academy, achieving outcomes largely in line with their year group cohort. The percentage of SEN students is approximately 20%, and the percentage of Pupil Premium students is similarly around 20%.
You will play a central role within the school's Senior Leadership Team; leading on SEN and Pupil Premium to ensure that every student is enabled to achieve the best possible outcomes; regardless of learning needs or disadvantage. You will be an outstanding SEN specialist, who either holds the NASENCo qualification, or is working towards this. This is a key, strategic role within the school, therefore the Academy Trust are committed to recruiting a candidate who shares their vision and who views the post as a positive progression in their career.
Closing date for applications: Thursday 16th September 2021
