Very notable points in the latest @theSENDcast with @NataliePacker – Every leader is a leader of SEND and it is crucial that this starts at the top! Completely agree that the head should have been a SENCO too. So lucky with this in my new school! #everychildwithsendmatters

Why make a podcast for Special Educational Needs?
SENCOs and teachers are expected to have extensive knowledge over an ever-increasing range of areas within SEN. They are supposed to do this with little or no training and limited guidance. They are also expected to keep up with continual changes that often remove support or guidance, the expectation is that they will use their experience and knowledge to develop their own systems. It simply doesn’t add up. When, where and how are these teachers and SENCOs supposed to gain this knowledge or these skills? The answer is the SENDcast, a weekly podcast dedicated to Special Educational Needs and Disability.
Parents of children and young people with SEND have a steep learning curve and lots to think about. They need a quick and easy way to gather knowledge and advice across a range of topics in a way that fits in with their life.The answer is the SENDcast
