Hi, I want to move into a special school and have applied to 4 schools so far. In each case I have been told I do not have enough experience. I am M5 and have not really taught any severe SEN children, however I work in playschemes during the holidays with children with disabilities. Do I continue to apply for special schools and hope that I get an interview, or should I apply for SENCo posts and take a stepping stone to get there? Also, I have seen a post advertised but there are no details about what the school is. It is described as an outstanding special school. The only instruction is to send CV and covering letter to an external agency. Should I send it anyway and see what happens? Thanks Theo.
