Biggleswade Academy


Required September 2019

Biggleswade Academy is an independent, state-funded Academy providing truly comprehensive education and wrap-around care for children aged 2-13. We provide statutory mainstream education for around 950 pupils as well as giving approximately 370 session places at the Academy Pre-school. All of our teachers deliver high-quality learning experiences for our pupils and help us develop a truly 21st Century Curriculum where high standards and expectations are a must.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, innovative educational professional to effectively lead and manage the SEND provision across Years 1 to 8 of the Academy. As well as a small teaching commitment each week, the successful candidate will:

  • Have previous experience of working with pupils with a range of additional needs and have an excellent knowledge of the SEND agenda
  • Hold the National SENCO Qualification
  • Have the ability to lead and manage an experienced team of learning support assistants and work closely with parents/careers and professionals
  • Be able to teach a variety of subjects from year 1 to year 8
  • Work closely with the Leader of Learning - ASD

When you step into our dynamic and innovative school it is immediately obvious how much every single pupil enjoys being here. Pick a pupil to tell you what they love about the school - that is how confident we are that we are one of the best schools to further your SENDCO and teaching career.

If you have the genuine passion and enthusiasm to join our dynamic team and don’t want to settle for second best - we want to hear from you!

We offer an organisation committed to innovation and professional development where you will have a chance to grow and have a genuine impact on the improvement and advancement of the Academy.

Hours: Full Time
Salary: MPS/UPS + TLR 2B + 1 SEN Point (dependent on experience)
