SENCO and governor relationship toolkit
My response: relationships.
At the heart of the SEND Reforms is the way we interact with each other. The three core principles for implementation of the SEND Code of Practice echo a similar message, emphasising:
- involvement of all partners
- informed decision making
- and a longer-term vision.
The SENCO is uniquely positioned in early years and school-aged learning environments to facilitate healthy dialogues around these principles. This toolkit focuses on one key relationship dynamic – that between the SENCO and the SEN governor.
The toolkit is divided into four parts:
- Working in collaboration
- How to make the most of meetings
- Termly reporting
- Formal compliance
The parts could be read sequentially or individually. Each part has an accompanying action-based resource that could be adapted to different settings.
