SET Maidstone and Causton School are proud members of the Seckford Education Trust. We share many things, including a determination to improve the outcomes for children. We have a team of staff that are dedicated to the welfare of all our young people, our staff go the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that children ‘Enjoy, Achieve and Thrive’. As a School we have adopted ‘The Thrive Approach’ as a way of supporting our young people.

We have a higher than average percentage of children with SEND and we are incredibly proud of the inclusive nature of our school. The School also hosts three specialist provisions that we are equally as proud of – a generic unit for EY and KS1, a KS2 cognition and learning unit and a KS2 communication and interaction unit.

We are looking for a passionate, talented and rigorous practitioner to join our dedicated team. The successful candidate will assist the SENCo in supporting our SEND pupils and their families. This is a non-teaching role, however, experience of covering classes and teaching small intervention groups on HLTA basis would be an advantage. Our new Deputy SENCo will contribute to improving standards of SEND in mainstream and across our specialist provisions. They will share the School’s vision and the belief that all young people can achieve at high levels.
