Whole Education SEND Network - This programme is open to all Primary and Secondary Schools - contact to register your interest in these events.

Based on a tried and tested model of peer review developed in partnership with David Bartram OBE, the WE SEND Network builds capacity and expertise in individual staff and across local authorities, improving the quality of SEND provision for vulnerable learners.

In Spring 2020 we launched a programme where 72 Primary and Secondary Schools; SENCOs were put into triads to peer review each other using coaching techniques and based on a quality assured self-evaluation. The Whole Education SEND network is all about shining a light on best practice and supporting practitioners to work together on areas for development. Improving the quality and consistency of special education provision across local authorities requires collaboration and opportunities to share and learn together.

The programme also provides a schedule of virtual training on issues including: • The Effective Use of TAs; • Intent: Leadership of SEND; • Provision Mapping

By participating in this project, SENCOs will: become more confident and accurate in SEND self-evaluations; build professional relationships with other SENCOs and use an action plan to map out and act on the areas for development in their school. Whole Education is delighted to be facilitating a number of online SEND CPD sessions for Surrey schools over the coming year, starting with Gareth Morewood’s session on ‘Working with Learners and Families’ next month (21st October). These hour long sessions, generously funded by SAfE, will be delivered via Zoom and will focus on specific aspects of SEND leadership.

Other experts delivering sessions are:
Marc Rowland (Intent - Leadership of SEND)
Natalie Packer (Implementation - teaching & learning)
Matthew Parker, MITA (Effective use of TAs)
Abigail Hawkins, SENCo Solutions (Provision Mapping)
David Bartram (Covid-19 response)
