The Perfect SENCO is the fully up-to-date, essential guide to supporting children with special educational needs; an invaluable resource for all schools that are looking to update their practice in line with the new national guidelines. Revised and updated to cover the changes resulting from the new Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, this book will empower your school to embrace the national changes which came into force in September 2014, by showing how to support every teacher as a teacher of children with special educational needs (SEN). Over recent years, the job of the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) has become more strategic and will now include provision mapping, working in partnership with parents, supporting other colleagues, commissioning services, demonstrating pupil progress and ensuring value for money. In essence, it is a role which contributes significantly to whole-school improvement. The Perfect SENCO provides guidance for SENCOs and other senior leaders on working in a strategic way to support improvement.It will be of use not only for potential or newly appointed SENCOs, but also for those who are more experienced and wish to keep their day-to-day practice up to date. Including key information and practical tips, The Perfect SENCO is a useful point of reference for busy senior leaders. The book can be used to encourage reflection of current policy and practice, to support cultural or systemic change and to consider ways of coordinating SEN provision to successfully raise the achievement of pupils with special educational needs. This revised and updated edition is referenced against the Children and Families Act, the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice and up-to-date Ofsted guidelines. It will support SENCOs, inclusion managers and coordinators, SEN governors together with senior leaders to start implementing change effectively.

Reviews

The Perfect SENCO is an absolute 'must' for head teachers and SENCOs. Natalie is highly skilled at explaining the 'big picture' and then providing practical strategies to ensure that what happens in school 'syncs' with national initiatives. If the advice in this book is followed, then schools can be assuredthat they are Ofsted ready and also that all statutory requirements are met. Included in the book are pro formas that can easily be adapted for each establishment or used as they are.Each chapter concludes with a 'mini' plenary which is useful to consolidate learning and also to use as a quick reference point.The Perfect SENCO is a special book: it ensures that it provides up to date advice which incorporates the changing landscape of SEN. It is also educational in that it can be used as a catalyst for school improvement and evaluation, meeting the requirements of Ofsted.The book takes into consideration the needs of children, their outcomes being the main focus. If teachers and senior leaders implement the strategies, this will provide a co-ordinated approach for school improvement.I would recommend this book, without reservation, to every school.Carol Aspinall, Independent Education Consultant This book is an absolute must read for all teachers and school leaders. Well selected accounts of practice and case studies offer insight into the practical aspects of achieving the aim of success for all our children, irrespective of need. There is no doubt that this should be on the reading list of any aspirant teacher who is attempting to discover a moral purpose and personal vision for education. Natalie's wealth of experience of special educational needs strategy, coupled with her huge desire for equality for all children, gives a clear insight into how to develop an educational philosophy whilst enabling opportunities for any teacher to be confident in becoming The Perfect SENCO.Chris Wheatley, Executive Head The Cotgrave Candleby L
