This is a question that I have wondered many a time during my 21 years in education and Penny Whelan broke it down for me.
SENCOs can appear very busy but in a way that no one else understands. They have lots of meetings, oodles of paperwork and yet can often be behind that closed door.
Earlier this year, I pinned down Penny - a SENCO in North London - and asked her just exactly what was it that SENCOs do - click on the link below to hear our initial conversations...
Following on from our first chat, I had so many more questions, as did many of the #TinyVoiceTalks 📣 listeners and thankfully, Penny agreed to come on again to discuss more SENCO them.
Penny and I would love to do more in this series so if you have questions, email email@example.com with them.
What do you want to know about SEND - it may be about a specific condition or more widely how you manage SEND in your classroom. We would love to know and answer your questions....
