What is a SENDCo?

b.    Working with families, to find out about their child (as you know your child best), as well as offering guidance about how to support your child at home.
c.    Supporting class teachers so that they can adapt planning when necessary to help each child learn to the best of his / her abilities.  Teachers are also supported in the identification of special needs and in ensuring the learning environment supports these needs.  This includes supporting children identified as ‘more able’ or ‘gifted & talented’
d.    Work with outside agencies to get the right support for pupils as well as take advice about target setting and different strategies to try. (Agencies include: Communication & Autism Team; Pupil & School Support; Educational Psychology Service; Physical Difficulties Support Service; Speech & Language Therapists; School Nurse).  If you would like information on the services provided by outside agencies a services summary document is available from the Inclusion Team
e.    Liaising with Mrs Wood, Head Teacher, to keep her aware of the latest needs and collaborate with strategic planning.
f.    Making sure the right paperwork is completed for all pupils on the SEN register. E.g. SEN Support Plans, referrals to outside agencies, requesting statutory assessment.
g.    Timetable and direct the Inclusion Team including planning which intervention groups are needed.  All of this is continually reviewed to make sure support is distributed to effectively meet the needs of as many children as possible, prioritising those with the greatest need.
