We are a vibrant, innovative and highly successful organisation: the place of choice to work and learn. Across the 5 academies of the GLC, we pledge that everyone enjoys an equality of opportunity. We work tirelessly to ensure that individual different characteristics including age, ethnicity, socio-economic background, academic ability, disability, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation are not discriminated against in any way. We create environments characterised by mutual respect where difference is celebrated and where individual differences don’t act as a barrier to success.
This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to lead SEND and Inclusion provision across Gateway Primary Free School and to work with a team of similar post holders across the GLC. Candidates must be able to demonstrate significant evidence in whole-school transformation leading directly to outstanding outcomes for SEND pupils.
