Summary

This seventh edition of the best-selling The SENCo Handbook has been updated to reflect the impact that the implementation of the SEND Code of Practice (DfE/DoH 2015) has had on policy and practice in schools and for SENCos. It provides vital information on statutory requirements, practical approaches to the SENCo role and responsibilities and perceptive analysis of issues relevant to all schools, Early Years settings and colleges. Debate and discussion of the different aspects of the SENCo role reveals how it has changed and will change. Written in an accessible and informative format, with numerous examples of good practice, this book will help all SENCos, headteachers and school leaders to create and implement effective whole school policies for special educational needs.

Key topics include:

  • leading and managing change in SEND policy and practice
  • developing whole school approaches to policy and practice for SEND
  • building capacity of class and subject teachers to meet the needs of all pupils
  • managing and leading the assess, plan, do, review response to those identified with additional needs
  • leading on the deployment and management of support staff
  • working with children, young people and their parents, especially in relation to those requiring EHC Plans
  • working in partnership with range of outside agencies and services
  • the historical context and management of current SEND law and administration

Photocopiable training materials are included as are new resources in appendices and source lists. The SENCo Handbook remains essential reading for those studying for the National Award for SEN Co-ordination, whilst more experienced SENCos will value its academic underpinning and practical advice on issues that matter.
