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


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, asses training needs and assist in the writing of a SEN support plan. A follow-up meeting 4-6 weeks later will identify if further support is needed. 


Phone Consultations
Phone consultations with a member of our senior leadership team are available every Thursday at 10am and 1pm. When booking, please indicate your area of need so you can be directed to the right individual.
