I am interested to find out if anyone else is a headteacher and a SENCO in their school. I am being asked to step up into a Head of School role, which has it's own set of questions for me, but as the current SENCO with no wish to let go of this work and no obvious existing candidate to take it on, the suggestion is that I would continue to be SENCO as well as HoS. Any thoughts? One of my first questions is, what might happen if we need to consider excluding a pupil? We've had no exclusions other than short, internal ones for two years but it's always a possibility and it has worked well thus far having SENCO separate from HT to provide both challenge and support. There are probably lots of other implications... I would be really grateful for any advice.
