Direct work with SENCO

We can offer one-off or regular on-going contact for SENCOs to provide support with the following areas:

  • Maintenance of EHCPs and development of SEN support plans
  • SEND Policy
  • SEND action plan
  • Tracking interventions
  • Tracking SEND data



In our experience, the best way to assess the development needs at a whole-school level is to complete a one-day SEND review lead by a SEN specialist senior leader and assisted by a senior teacher.  This allows an in-depth analysis of the following areas in collaboration with school leaders and SENCO:

  • Outcomes
  • Leadership
  • The quality of teaching and learning for
  • Pupils with SEND
  • Working with pupils and parents
  • Assessment and identification
  • Monitoring, tracking and evaluation
  • Efficient use of resources
  • The quality of SEND provision

From this, a SEND action plan is created which can be used independently by the school or in conjunction with Chiltern Wood, who can provide training and support in development areas.


Pupil Referral

If a setting would like support with a specific pupil, a referral can be made. In discussion with the class teacher and SENCO, a specialist teacher will be assigned to provide advice, assess training needs and assist in the writing of a SEN support plan.

We welcome visits from professionals in the local area to see specific interventions or general SEND practice in person.
