The essential SENCO's guide for doing the job perfectly. Real education isn't about a race to the top of the class or the league table. It isn't about being better than anyone else or accumulating as many qualifications as you possibly can. It's about being helped to be the best you can possibly be by professionals who are skilled enough to know how to do it and compassionate enough to take the time to do it well. Nowhere is this philosophy more important than when it comes to supporting children with special educational needs and this book, commissioned for our Perfect Series by a SEN consultant with many years' experience, will help you achieve just that.

Preventing exclusion in schools through inclusive, child-centred, needs-based practice
Author: Jackie Ward
Publisher: Crown House Publishing Ltd
In On the Fringes: Preventing exclusion in schools through inclusive, child-centred, needs-based practice, Jackie Ward opens up the debate surrounding school exclusion and its link to special educational needs (SEN), and shares action-oriented strategies designed to bring about a more inclusive approach. Too many of our vulnerable young people are being excluded – even those with SEN and the very young who are only just on the cusp of school life. And having seen first-hand the impact that exclusion has on children with often unmet medical needs – such as autistic spectrum condition (ASC) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – Jackie explores in this book the realities of what exclusion means to each of us and its impact on wider society. Jackie examines this critical issue through the lens of her experiences in both mainstream and specialist settings and presents practical, solution-focused guidance to help schools deliver the inclusive education that every child deserves. Drawing upon a range of sources, Jackie’s wide-reaching analysis is backed up with case studies, up-to-date research and anecdotal reports – setting out a balanced view focusing on the stated and underlying needs of schools, staff, parents, children and other agencies. On the Fringes scrutinises exclusion procedures and reviews the SEND Code of Practice in depth, particularly highlighting the role of early interventions in detecting underlying SEN and medical needs. Jackie also explores a range of pre-emptive and alternative approaches that can be employed as part of a whole-school approach to pastoral care and behaviour management that develops pupils’ self-awareness and self-regulation. In doing so she offers informed inspiration to teachers and SEN practitioners working with some of our most vulnerable children – who, without our care, compassion and tailored provision, are too often destined for lives on the fringes of society. Suitable for teachers, school leaders, SEN professionals, policy-makers and parents. Chapters include: Chapter 1 – Exclusion facts and figures; Chapter 2 – The legalities of exclusion; Chapter 3 – The school’s view: inclusion versus exclusion; Chapter 4 – A view from the PRU: after the exclusion; Chapter 5 – The child: ‘that kid’; Chapter 6 – The parents’ view; Chapter 7 – Behaviour or complex need?; Chapter 8 – Spotting the signs of underlying needs; Chapter 9 – Addressing mental health and wellbeing; Chapter 10 – Holistic approaches.

In The Teacher’s Guide to SEN Natalie Packer outlines what all teachers need to know about SEN, and provides a range of practical tips and ideas that can be applied in the classroom. One of the key messages of the Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice, first introduced in 2014, is that every teacher is responsible and accountable for every pupil in their class, including those with SEN. So what does this mean in practice for you as a class or subject teacher? Essentially, it requires you to understand every individual’s needs, have a range of relevant knowledge and skills and have the confidence to try out some new approaches. This book is your essential guide to meeting these requirements. The Teacher’s Guide to SEN details the areas of need teachers are most likely to encounter, including: speech, language and communication needs (SLCN); autism (or ASD); moderate learning difficulties (MLD); specific learning difficulties (SpLD), including dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia; social, emotional and mental health needs; and physical needs, including visual impairment (VI), hearing impairment (HI) and physical disability. It also provides a useful overview of the many potentially unfamiliar acronyms used in SEN. Special educational needs and disability (SEND) is an umbrella terms which covers a varied array of different needs. They may impact upon learning and cognition, behaviour, social interactions, or an individual’s ability to access the curriculum and certain activities in the same way as their peers. With the appropriate support, these needs need not be a barrier to learning, as this book demonstrates. The Teacher’s Guide to SEN offers practical hands-on strategies to ensure high-quality teaching for all, together with key facts, real-life case studies and questions for reflection. The comprehensive advice includes: defining special educational needs; understanding your responsibilities; identifying pupils with SEN and putting support in place as part of the graduated approach; contributing to SEN reviews and education, health and care plans (EHC plans); making reasonable adjustments in the classroom; delivering inclusive, high-quality teaching for all; raising expectations; classroom strategies, focused on feedback, planning, questioning, modelling and scaffolding learning; developing relationships with pupils and their families; effective partnership working with teaching assistants, parents and outside agencies; and tracking and reviewing progress and provision. Relevant to all primary and secondary practitioners, this is an essential point of reference for busy teachers, including trainees, NQTs or indeed any practitioner who would like to refresh their knowledge or gather some new ideas to try in the classroom.

According to the most recent SEND Code of Practice, every teacher is a teacher of children with special educational needs and disabilities, and yet teachers often receive little or no training in this area. Despite their best intentions they are therefore often ill-equipped to rise to the challenge of helping their students achieve the best possible educational outcomes. This comprehensive resource will equip primary and secondary teachers and SENDCos with the training and skills they need to fully support children with SEND in mainstream classrooms. Cherryl Drabble draws on her vast experience as a CPD leader, NQT mentor and her many years of working with SEND to share guidance, practical activities and strategies for evaluating and strengthening your practice and that of your colleagues. The book provides a set of ready-to-use training plans, accompanied by PowerPoint slides available to download online for free, so you can train your colleagues in this essential area and ensure the best support possible for students with SEND across your school. In total, the book offers over 50 hours of CPD, equating to a cost of less than 50p per hour of training!
