A leading Independent Preparatory School in London require a Head of Learning Support from April, 2021. This is a permanent, full-time position.

The role would involve being responsibility for the SEND provision throughout the school as a member of SLT. The successful candidate will demonstrate best practise by ensuring children of all attainment levels reach their potential as well as leading and managing SEN staff. The chosen candidate must foster excellent relationships with children and parents alike, be a real team player and be committed to wider school life. The role would entail assisting pupils with special needs such as: dyslexia, dyspraxia, and mild learning difficulties from Early Years to Year 6.

Essential: Several years' experience teaching pupils with special needs, particularly dyslexia. Applications from experienced SENCOs from secondary school environments would also be warmly received. A NASENCO qualification would be an essential requirement for the post.

Desired: Experience holding a position of responsibility, and a background in the independent sector, would be a bonus, however, this is certainly not essential.

The school adopts a family atmosphere in which children are happy, confident and encouraged to be forward thinking. It is a thriving school that takes pride in its holistic approach to education.

If you would like the opportunity to manage the SEN provision in a thriving independent school, please send your CV asap to: devra.farhi@harrishill.co.uk or please ask for Devra for an informal chat on: 020 7820 7308.

Harris Hill is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all partners to share this commitment.
