SENCOs loved Lorraine’s last FREE SEND Briefing, ‘Response to the SEND Review’. Here’s some of the feedback shared with us…
“She really understands the role of the SENCO and was very clear on the expectations of schools to make reasonable adjustments, it was really useful to listen to someone who has such a wealth of experience in the world of SEND.”
Helen Jones – SENCO, All Saints’ CE Primary
“Easy chapter by chapter summary of a very long and daunting document made it much clearer and easier to understand key points and implications on schools and role of SENCo”
Nic Bateman – SENCo & Reception/Year1 Teacher, Our Lady and St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School
“It was very helpful to have a clear overview of the green paper, and it is always good to hear Lorraine’s thoughts on SEN policy and practice as she has such a good overview of the national picture.”
Rachael Falkner – Senior Lecturer in SEN, Oxford Brookes University
“It helps to listen to someone else’s thoughts especially when they are so experienced and have the same priorities. The document is long and it’s helpful / reassuring to have a professional overview.”
Clare Regan – Leader of Inclusion and SENCo, Tanbridge House School
