Are you passionate about working with young people and curious learners?

Would you like to experience working in an exceptional educational setting with the opportunity for training and development as part of an excellent inclusion team?

Penrice Academy is a happy, safe and welcoming school community with highly effective support, care and guidance to allow students to flourish and excel. We are delighted that our 2022 results were simply exceptional, with Penrice recognised as the top-performing Cornish state secondary school for Progress 8 and Attainment 8. But it’s not all about results. Enrichment plays a huge part of life at Penrice with a plethora of extra-curricular opportunities through our Penrice Plus curriculum, offering over 100 clubs/activities each academic year including options in Art, Academic, Sport and Wellbeing. Our priority is to give students the best possible chance of success and happiness when they move onto their next stages in education and beyond. Penrice Academy is part of Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT), a family of Cornish Primary and Secondary Schools, with a strategic vision to ‘learn together to help every child achieve more’. This is an exciting time to join our large, dynamic Trust, which is responsible for educating learners across four secondary schools, one junior school and nine primary schools. There are extensive opportunities to work collaboratively with experienced professionals across the Trust with unparalleled CPD and career development prospects.

We are seeking to expand our SEN Inclusion team to enable our learners to thrive and achieve the best possible outcomes. We wish to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic team member to support students with a range of additional needs, taking a proactive role in supporting the educational, social and physical needs of students at our school.

The successful candidate will be able to use their initiative, and support teaching and learning across the curriculum, aiding the teacher in the practical organisation of classroom activities and small group work and interventions. We pride ourselves in our enriched curriculum offer, with opportunities afforded to all students as part of our inclusive ethos and we would like to continue to advocate this for our learners with your help.
