In this week’s podcast, Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Kate Browning to discuss SENCO time management, with a focus on primary schools.
Kate Browning is an independent SEND Consultant who focuses on school improvement for SEND. She has been a SENCo, SEN advisory teacher, local authority school improvement officer for SEND and interim Education Development Officer for NASEN.

Kate also facilitates the SENCo network across Leicstershire, Warwickshire and Derbyshire, supports Governors and is also a Chair of Governors.
In most schools, SENCOs do not have enough time for their role. It’s an ongoing challenge for almost every SENCO in the country! It is, therefore, important to be organised. In this podcast, we discuss how to organise the key elements of the SENCO role:
- Development work
- Monitoring and Evaluation
It is important as a SENCO that you are steering your way toward a whole school approach, where leadership for SEND is part of every leader’s job.
What is an SEN Admin Assistant? How do you utilise your SEN Admin Assistant?
To make a difference in your school it is important that the SENCO is on the leadership team so that they are heard.
