New to Role SENCo Summer 25

This event will provide information about Surrey’s policies and procedures on Special Educational Needs and Disability, in a period of constant change and challenge. There is also guidance for new SENCos on strategies and approaches that will help them manage their role.

The beliefs, knowledge and or teaching practices this programme aims to address:

• New SENCos aware of the appropriate paperwork to use when working with children, families and the Local Authority.
• Analyse current approaches to identifying SEND to ensure need types are accurate and all learners with SEND are receiving additional to or different from provision.
• Greater awareness of how to engage professional support services across Surrey.
• Reflect on how they can ensure the graduated approach is understood and implemented consistently across their setting.
• Gain an insight into system they can adopt in order to manage their SEND workload.
• Understand how to monitor and track interventions in order to be able to gauge the impact they are having on learners.
• Appreciation of the different person-centred approaches that can be used in order to work with and engage learners and their families.
Intended Impact on Practice:
• Clearer awareness of Surrey’s approach to supporting SEND pupils will help new SENCos to target how additional provision meets the needs of pupils to help them better access the curriculum.
• More focused support to help pupils engage with the curriculum will help support overall progress.
• Person centred approaches will help pupils to develop skills that will help prepare them for the next stage of their education.
Intended improvement and/or evaluation of impact for pupils, including those with SEND and/or disadvantaged backgrounds:
• Support for disadvantaged learners targeting their needs with input from professionals across Surrey.
• Tighter monitoring of interventions will help in refining content so that support meets the needs of this group of pupils.
