> A reflective attitude to recognise when something can be done more efficiently or effectively and bring about change.
> Resilience, hard work, adaptability, and a sense of humour.

We can offer you:
> The opportunity to shape the direction of this exciting role in partnership with our experienced SENDCO and SLT.
> Lively, happy children who thrive when working closely with adults.
> A friendly, supportive team who share a common ambition of wanting the best for every pupil.
>CPD tailored to your needs and areas of interest
