St Georges Street
Job Start Date: January 2022 or earlier
Location: Birmingham – Newtown and Handsworth – Across two schools.
St. George’s Church of England Primary Academy and St. Michael’s Primary Academy are seeking to appoint an exceptional Inclusion Lead to work across the two schools. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference to the children, staff and families of two inner-city school communities. The leaders of both schools are looking forward to appointing a new SENCO from January 2022 or before. We are looking for a passionate teacher with a genuine belief in inclusive education and the achievement of all pupils. This belief in inclusive education is central to our Christian ethos, where every child is welcomed, protected and loved. Whilst we ask you to share our ethos, you do not need to be a practicing Christian to apply for this post (we have many non-Christian members of staff). The best candidate will be selected. We are looking for an outstanding, innovative and determined teacher to be responsible for the strategic leadership development of Special Education Needs provision and the operational management of all SEND and Pastoral staff and their resources. You will lead Special Education Needs provision across both schools and ensure that the academies meet their statutory requirements of the SEND Code of Practice. Your time will be split equally between two schools that are a five-minute drive away from each other. You will form part of the senior leadership teams at both schools and play a key role in the continued improvement of both settings. The role is non-class-based. Through our provision we aim to teach all children how to live ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10), to be responsible, self-confident and to believe in themselves in an environment which is stimulating, exciting and rich in opportunities. We believe that success is found in who you are as well as what you do, and at all of our schools we aim to provide an outstanding education, supported by excellent pastoral care and high standards of behaviour, set within a distinctive ethos. We want to equip our pupils with academic achievement, experiences and personal attributes to enable them to succeed in the next stage of their education. Both St. George’s and St. Michael’s are part of the Birmingham Diocese Multi-Academy Trust (BDMAT) and therefore will be supported by and connected with a network of Church of England schools within the region. The Trust was established in 2017 by Birmingham Diocesan Board of Education, which has a strong track record of providing excellent educational provision and achieving rapid school improvement across all phases. The trust currently has 19 schools, one of which is secondary, spread across three local authority areas: Birmingham City (10 schools), Warwickshire (6 schools) and Solihull (3 schools).
