Hello everyone, I am in my 4th year of teaching and my school was last year made an academy. I had been covering the SENCo's maternity leave. The academy has now been fedorated with a local school in special measures. I have been seconded over for a year to replace their SENCo. We are due an HMI visit sometime before Christmas and I'm slightly bricking it. I really want to help get the school out of special measures. This is my action plan for the first 2/3 weeks of this term. I'd really love it if someone could make any suggestions of what else I could do to make a difference. I'm very lucky to also have some very supportive SENCos in my cluster who are helping me alot. Ok so I'm currently doing my National Award for SEN before anyone panics about that! I've made class SEN files because they were non-existent Booked in provision mapping meetings for this week to discuss and timetable interventions with each class teacher Sorted out the 'interesting' filing system which involved the childrens files just being on a shelf and not in a lockable cabinet Holding a staff meeting and making a display board to promote inclusion/ECM Booked training for TAs on phonics, fizzy, clever hands ect. Supporting less experienced teachers with planning intervention groups and setting IEPs Holding a monthly 'surgery' for parents to discuss concerns I've also had to start an SEN register from scratch. I've been a bit of a busy little bee but I'm terrified it is not going to be enough.
