'The indispensable guide that every aspiring SENCO needs.' Colin Grimes Written by Jackie Ward, a practising SENCO with a wealth of experience, How to be an Outstanding Primary SENCO is a step-by-step approach to excelling as a primary SENCO. Suitable for all current and aspiring SENCOs and linked to the SEND Code of Practice and legal requirements, this practical guide simplifies the terminology around SEND and explores issues a child might face and possible solutions. With a view to minimising workload and streamlining paperwork, Jackie does not shy away from the problems or potential setbacks that SENCOs may experience. Instead she provides practical, realistic solutions and strategies to overcome these challenges, including how to support colleagues and parents, work with outside agencies and communicate policies more effectively. Focusing on a SENCO's own self-care and wellbeing, How to be an Outstanding Primary SENCO celebrates this challenging role to enable SENCOs not only to be outstanding, but to have a fulfilling, long-term career and improve the life chances of children with SEND.
