We wish to appoint a highly motivated and reflective SENDCo support assistant to assist the SENDCo in leading the provision for special educational needs across the school. Over the last three years we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders and teachers who are having a significant impact on the quality of teaching and student outcomes. With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more. We received a very positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018 and our A Level progress figures that year were the best in County Durham. We have made significant improvements to our curriculum, teaching, and professional development programme and we are committed to reducing teacher workload.

Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 35% in three years and in September 2020 we were oversubscribed with more than 1300 students on roll.

The successful candidate will possess energy and enthusiasm and believe that every young person deserves the very best education and support. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a SENDCo support assistant are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including a number of NQTs, and a number of support staff appointed over the last two years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented individual to join our dynamic and forward thinking team. We are looking for someone who is driven, committed and skilled in a range of tasks who can work alongside colleagues to assist in leading the provision for SEN across the school.
