Assistant Head: Compliance
L9 - L13
12-month contract (maternity cover)

This opportunity will be suitable for a qualified SENCO who has considerable experience working with EHCPs, including development and monitoring. You will be able to lead on the needs of SEND learners across the whole Hospital School - from age 5 to 18 and across a number of settings.

We expect that you will be a Deputy or Designated Safeguarding Lead and you will be comfortable leading on safeguarding across multiple sites.

You will have significant experience of attending and contributing to multi agency meetings and working alongside colleagues in social care, early help and safeguarding.


Assistant Head: SEMH
L9 - L13

We expect that you will already be an Assistant or Deputy Head and you could come from a primary, secondary or special school setting. Whatever your background, you will have significant experience in supporting learners with SEMH and/or autism and in managing the day-to-day operations of a successful learning environment.

You will mainly be based at our Leo Kelly School, a centre dedicated to supporting and enhancing the lives of learners with SEMH and/or autism.

You will take lead responsibility for a core subject or group of non-core subjects, and while you will have the opportunity to work across the full breadth of the Hospital School, your main focus will be on leading the Leo Kelly School.

It would be desirable for you to be a qualified SENCO but this is not essential if your experience gives you the relevant skills to operate effectively.


Assistant Head: HIVE (Home and Innovative Virtual Education)
L9 - L13

This is a new role in our school created to enhance and support learning for students across Manchester. Manchester Hospital School is commissioned to deliver outreach to all Manchester schools to support them in meeting the needs of pupils. This can range from signposting Heads to external agencies, attending school meetings and advising SENCOs on the challenges and opportunities for learners who have medical conditions, including mental health.

It would be desirable for you to be a qualified SENCO but this is not essential if your experience gives you the relevant skills to operate effectively. You will be confident in your knowledge and understanding of the interventions and programmes on offer to schools to support them with their students. You will be able to foster positive relationships with Headteachers and SENCOs, whether that’s by phone or in person, offering expert advice and ensuring the quality of provision to students, and addressing any areas of concern.

You will already have significant experience of attending and contributing to multi agency meetings and working alongside colleagues in social care, early help and safeguarding.

You will chair the monthly HIVE panel to provide schools with additional teaching support for their students who are too unwell to attend school. And you will oversee a bank of sessional teachers who you will match to students to deliver one to one tutoring.

You’ll have access to the latest in teaching technology, such as AV1 robots, and will be responsible for identifying students who would benefit from this innovative resource.
