    Hi I am considering applying for a SENCO role at a local school and have got a tour this week. Any suggestions of useful questions I could ask as part of this? Thanks

    Is it a full time SENCO post?
    Percentage of children with SEND?
    time spent on admin v time spent supporting SEND children?
    Line management responsibilities?
    Is the SENCO part of SLT?
    How supportive is the SENCO Governor!

    Priority learning need ? Important to know re ( appropriate ) curriculum delivery ... setting’s criteria for SEND ? ... important to know if they just want someone to maintain the status quo or someone to shake up provision. The website can be useful - see if SEND highlighted / hidden

    Avoid asking questions which could easily be answered by reading the school Sen information report!
