The Special Educational Needs and Disabilities 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 and 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.

Exciting opportunities have arisen for outstanding and inspirational teachers (KS1, KS2 and KS3) who are 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 a member of the teaching team at the Duke of Lancaster school, you will play a key role in the development of our students and be instrumental in providing a lasting, positive impact on the educational and life outcomes for students with a range of educational needs.

As part of SENDAT, we offer:

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