Our school lies in the heart of our community and is highly regarded locally. We are proud of our vibrant, socially, ethnically and culturally diverse school with a mission to ‘open a world of opportunities’ for all students.

We are looking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed SEND practitioner keen to develop their career at Kings Norton Girls’ School and Sixth Form.

The role involves working in partnership with all stakeholders (SEND team, pastoral team, class teachers, support staff, external agencies and parents/carers) to provide holistic support that improves the outcomes for students with additional needs. Being specialist in SEMH, you will promote best practice, provide support, challenge, training and development to colleagues to ensure pupil progress. You will work effectively with SEND students across key stages and undertake relevant assessments in order to establish student SEMH needs. You will be responsible for planning, delivering and evaluating relevant interventions whilst promoting the inclusion of students with SEMH needs within the whole school provision.

The successful candidate should be passionate about making a difference to the lives of students and keen to join a school that is relentless in its pursuit of excellence. You will be enthusiastic about ensuring the students you work with make outstanding progress and are able to flourish holistically. In return we can offer a supportive culture that is constantly seeking to improve learners’ experience and attainment through working collaboratively and being willing to adopt new ideas. Benefits include the Westfield Health Cash Plan including an Employee Assistance Programme and a cycle to work scheme.
