Feedback from a SENCO conference I was asked to address. I had an hour to ‘challenge and inspire’ the new SENCO’s. To give a different perspective.

Dear Ally,
As you can see from the comments above, the evaluations from the SENCO’s were excellent. Thank you so much for delivering such a challenging and thought-provoking session. I really appreciated it. Hopefully we will see you again for the same next year. When I have arranged a date I will be in touch.

Best wishes and many thanks again,
Tina Morgan
Lead Advisory Teacher, Learning Support Service
