Newcastle High School for Girls is seeking an engaging and passionate practitioner to lead provision for SEND and EAL pupils across our thriving school, in an environment where individuality is both nurtured and celebrated.
The successful candidate will have the ability to promote and coordinate SEND and EAL provision across the school, manage individual pupil learning pathways, and drive forward the very best support for pupils with additional needs. They will already have significant experience in planning tailored curriculum provision for individuals and small groups, and in supporting colleagues on effective intervention and strategies. The ability to carry out assessments to identify learning difficulties and for examination access arrangements is desirable, as is previous knowledge and experience around supporting EAL pupils.
We have a very strong team of teaching and pastoral staff committed to enabling every pupil to enjoy learning and achieve their potential, so are looking for an equally strong SENDCo to help build on the provision in this area. The SENDCo forms part of our Pastoral Leadership Group, which includes the Deputy Head Pastoral, Heads of Year, School Nurse and School Counsellor. The SENDCo works alongside this wider pastoral team as well as the Deputy Head Academic and Heads of Department to ensure every pupil is effectively supported.

Newcastle High School for Girls
Newcastle High School for Girls is one of the North East’s leading independent girls’ day schools. Founded in 2014 following the merger of two very long standing predecessor schools, NHSG is a state-of-the-art, modern school with a tradition and history stemming back almost 150 years.
We are an all through school (ages 3-18) with around 250 girls in the Junior School and 450 in the Senior School, including 150 in the Sixth Form, who, together with around 150 staff, make up a friendly and welcoming community.
The Junior and Senior Schools occupy their own separate campuses around a mile apart and the role will require working at both locations. Our two campuses are situated within the suburban, leafy, areas of Jesmond and Sandyford, both with excellent transport links to the Tyne & Wear Metro and bus services from across the region.Visit School Website
