We live and breathe SEND, drawing on our founder’s extensive skills and experience in the field – Angela is highly experienced in SEND and was a leading SENDco in Calderdale Authority before becoming a Headteacher. She is passionate about inclusion, champions diversity & has a thorough grounding in SEND-compatible pedagogy within the mainstream system. Angela currently advises on SEND strategy for Pinc College – a specialist provision for 16-25 yr old students – and is SEND governor for a three-form entry Primary School in Bradford Authority.

Our Education Partners can support your SEND offer with:

  • Evaluation of your SEND provision
  • Specific SEND advice and support
  • SENDco mentoring
  • SEND-specific Behaviour Management approaches and strategies
  • Programmes of SEND CPD and training
  • Advising on shaping your EHCAR process
  • Advising on drafting EHCPs for the best chance of success
  • Signposting to key professionals to help with SEND provision

As with all our work, we begin with a conversation with you to identify your goals and objectives. We identify appropriate partners to work with you and draw up a SEND CPD plan personalised to your setting, in line with available budget. We work with you and your staff to ascertain their skills and expertise, to ensure that our CPD objectives acknowledge staff starting points, value their expertise and are appropriate to staff roles and context. We translate the objectives into incremental CPD steps, planning the rhythm of activities and Senior & Middle Leadership involvement to effectively embed practice and a culture of improvement.

Our process involves multiple & varied targeted interactions, with the intensity, level & type of support tailored to the specific need of each staff member. We develop genuine relationships by working side-by-side with leaders and other members of staff in person/remotely over a set period of time, with regular feedback to the headteacher/SLT on progress, impact on staff, impact on pupils and achievement of improvement goals.

We love what we do & are always happy to discuss our approach and see how we can help you meet your school improvement and CPD needs. For a no-obligation free phone consultation, request a callback and let’s see how we can help you!
