Event description
This course is suitable for childminders, newly appointed SENCOs and assistant SENCOs who need to understand the role of the SENCO. SENCOs who would like a refresher course in order to become more familiar with the process would also benefit from this course.

“Providers must have arrangements in place to support children with SEN or disabilities…. And must have regard to the Special Educational Needs (SEN) Code of Practice.”
(EYFS Statutory Framework, page 29)

As a new SENCO, the SEND Code of Practice can appear to be daunting and challenging. This half-day course will help you to develop your understanding of the requirements of the Code of Practice and the role of the SENCO in implementing it. Through group work and discussions there will be opportunities to explore:

The role and responsibilities of the SENCO
The role of other staff in the setting in supporting children with SEND
The processes required to support children once a concern has been raised through following the graduated approach
Learning outcomes
To have an understanding of the whole team approach to supporting children under the SEND Code of Practice.

To have a clear understanding of the role and responsibilities for the SENCO and staff regarding the SEND Code of Practice.

To understand and feel confident in using the graduated approach once concerns have been raised for a child.
