I am actively recruiting an experienced SEN Teacher for a wonderful and creative primary school in Croydon.

Who would suit this role?

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for an experienced SEN Teacher with knowledge and training in SpLD, assessment for SpLD is a benefit. This would suit a Dyslexia specialist and qualifications to assess for SpLD would be highly beneficial.

This role would also suit a SENCO looking to improve their work life balance in a school where SEN is fully supported by the headteacher. This role will not include EHCP processing so will not suit someone who is looking to gain or develop this area. This is a child centered role with SEN advisory responsibility and 1:1 interventions with up to 30 pupils with identified additional needs.

The current SENCO is retiring and has implemented successful strategies and scaffolding for the teaching staff, she has created a plethora of useful resources to support SEN.
