How is the governing body involved with SEN provision?
In our school we have a governor who is responsible for special educational needs. Mrs Martin is in school daily and can be contacted through the school office. Mrs Martin meets with the SENDCo regularly and has an understanding of how the school meets the needs of pupils with additional needs. In these meetings the SEND governor makes sure that children, young people and families are being supported by the right services from inside and outside of school.
In addition the Head Teacher reports to the governing body on issues relating to SEND at every governing body meeting, in the head teacher’s report. The governors will challenge, support and advise the head teacher on issues relating to SEND.
