  • Developing and reviewing the school’s SEND Information report/policy

  • Co-ordinating all the support for students with special educational needs or disabilities

  • Updating the school’s SEND register (a system ensuring that all the SEND needs are known in school) and making sure those records of your child’s progress and needs are kept up to date and are confidential

  • Providing specialist support for teachers and support staff in the school so that they can help students with SEND in the school to achieve the best possible progress


 They are also responsible for ensuring that you are:

  • Involved in supporting your child’s learning

  • Kept informed about the support your child is receiving

  • Involved in reviewing how your child is doing

  • Liaising with all other agencies which may be involved with your child e.g. Educational Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy, Behaviour Support Service, Social Care and Health Service
