SENCo Consultation and Support

Outline

Our consultation and support service for SENCos is designed to offer a comprehensive opportunity for open, collaborative problem solving and completion of core tasks; develop plans, gain advice and ‘share the load’ with experienced, compassionate and focused practitioners. You will benefit from practical, hands-on support from passionate and creative SENCos with mainstream, specialist teaching and Senior Leadership backgrounds.
