Distributed leadership for SEND: seeking a strategic approach
Leadership and management can be highly effective when distributed across different levels in a school.
But what does a distributed approach to the leadership of SEND across a school look like?
Kate Browning explains and outlines how distributed leadership for SEND can enable improved access, participation and achievement for children with SEND across all aspects of school life.
3 takeaways from Kate’s training session
– Acknowledge that it’s becoming increasingly unmanageable for SENCOs to single-handedly lead the heart, front and centre of the coordination of
SEND provision and practice across a school –
– Recognise we get better outcomes for children with SEND when the leadership around that is distributed and everybody understands the role they play –
– Understand how SEND can be lead well in your school –
This session is aimed at Senior Leaders, SENCOs and Teachers working with children with SEND.
