The Special Educational Needs and Academies Trust (SENDAT) is a Multi Academy Trust whose provisions support a range of needs including Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Social, Emotional & Mental Health and Behavioural (SEMH) needs. Our core aim is to provide for the continuum of special needs across the Eastern region.  

All SENDAT schools and alternate provisions have Trauma Informed practices embedded across the curriculum and SENDAT staff colleagues are given training and support to develop and use these skills in their day-to-day working.

An exciting new opportunity has arisen for an outstanding administrator who is self-motivated and keen to be involved from the very start in setting up the Duke of Lancaster, a new Special Free School and part of the growth and development of SENDAT.

This exciting new addition to the trust opens in January 2022 and will provide for 100 students aged 5-16 who have an EHCP for Communication and Interaction needs.

As leader of the Administration Support team at the Duke of Lancaster school, you will play a key role in the development of the communications systems and administration processes which will underpin the support service provided to the school’s students, staff and parents/carers.

Your appointment will commence in advance of the opening of the school (January 2022) and in the autumn of 2021 you will be required to work in collaboration with administrative staff colleagues across the trust, including visiting other SENDAT schools as required.

As part of the SENDAT, we offer:

  • employee benefits including pensions, healthcare cash plan and cycle2work scheme
  • a wide range of professional development opportunities
  • a supportive working environment.
