This is an exciting opportunity to work within a newly opened SEND school in the Greenwich area. This SEND school is a unique provision following a therapeutic humanistic approach to education and childhood development. The school aims to ensure that vulnerable children stay within an educational setting or return from home education before returning to mainstream or specialist provision as quickly as possible.

The School is built upon the vision and excellence of highly skilled professionals with many years of experience in education and in clinical environments. The well-being and academic achievement of most young people is significantly accelerated by addressing the root causes of behavioural, emotional, social difficulties, and without a focus on these areas some young people simply cannot access education.

The Assistant Headteacher will be required to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people, and follow school policies and the code of conduct.

Core Responsibilities:
> Formulating the aims and objectives of the school
> Establishing policies for achieving these aims and objectives
> Managing staff and resources
> Monitoring progress towards the achievement of the school’s aims and objectives
> A timetabled teaching commitment to be agreed with the Headteacher
> Support the headteacher and other SLT in the day-to-day management of the school
> Communicate the school’s vision compellingly and support the headteacher’s strategic leadership
> Lead on particular whole-school strategies and policy areas
