Required to start September 2023.
Situated on the North Devon coastline in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Governors of Lampard Community School are seeking to appoint an exceptional, motivated and inspirational Headteacher who is passionate about the education of pupils who have Special Educational Needs.
Lampard Community School is a thriving Special School with 150 students aged 5 to 16. Pupils attending this school have significant needs in the area of Communication and Interaction and this is specified in an EHCP. Many have a diagnosis of autism and/or have needs relating to speech, language and communication (SLCN).
Due to their complex profile of needs, pupils are working well below age-related expectations, therefore at KS4 students take Entry Level/Level 1 Functional Skills qualifications and a range of vocational options at Entry Level. Typically, our students move on to Supported Learning at Petroc College to access a progressive and meaningful Post-16 education.
We work closely with parents, carers and other agencies to give every student high quality education and care. Lampard has experienced and specialist staff who are dedicated to meeting the educational needs of all students.
The new Headteacher will lead the school from a very positive ‘Good’ OFSTED grading (July 2017) to ‘Outstanding’ while maintaining the unique culture and ethos of the school.
It is desirable for applicants to have leadership expertise in the education of students who have Special Educational Needs and are committed to providing the best quality education and having high aspirations for their futures.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
This role requires a DBS disclosure.
This role requires the ability to fulfil all spoken aspects of the role with confidence and fluency in English.
