Job Status:       Permanent
Start Date:       01 September 2022

Sprites serves a challenging part of Ipswich and that is exactly why we need a dedicated leader to join our excellent staff team, someone who will give everything for these remarkable children. This is not a simple day job – we are transforming a community and creating an enduring legacy. We are here to make a difference, break down barriers and raise aspirations…these are the values and moral purpose of the candidate we need.

This role is for an Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion. You will be the SENDCo and DSL and be leading the pastoral team. Preferably, we are after someone with a SEND and DSL background, however, will consider candidates with a passion and working knowledge of these areas even if you don’t have the necessary qualifications yet. For us, it is important that you are a ‘champion’ for pupils with SEND, combining excellent classroom practice with a thorough understanding of inclusive and pastoral support. You will model this yourself as well as training staff to improve their knowledge, understanding and practice.

If this sounds like a project for you then let’s have a chat on the phone or come and visit our delightful school.
