We are looking to appoint an experienced, inspirational, highly organised and capable Assistant Head with responsibility for SEND.

Crocketts is an inclusive 2 form entry mainstream primary school with a child-centred ethos where all staff are trained in trauma and attachment. We have a Focus Provision for up to 12 children with complex physical and medical needs. This is currently managed by our Inclusion Leader who will work closely with the successful candidate. Approximately 20-25% of our children are currently identified with SEND with a growing number of children on EHCPs so we need a strong leader who is up for the challenge!  

We need someone who is passionate about inclusion and about improving outcomes for children with learning needs. You will share our commitment to ensuring that all of our children are able to access the best provision available. We are looking for someone who has experience of working with Inclusion Support in Sandwell (or the equivalent in other LAs) and who understands the role that external agencies play in assessing and supporting children’s needs.  

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop and enrich our SEND provision within a highly motivated, hard-working and supportive team. You will also need a good sense of humour and fun!
