Who is the SENCo?

The SENCo at our school is Sam Bocock.

When is the SENCo available and how do I contact her?

What does the SENCo do? 

Sam is responsible for anything relating to 'Special Educational Needs and Disabilities' (SEND) within the school.  This makes sure that any special educational needs are identified and that support is put in place to help them.  Other duties include:

  • Supporting staff

How can the SENCo help me?

Sam will be able to offer advice about how to identify if your pupil has any special educational needs and what support they might need.  She can make direct referrals to many outside agencies and lead multi-agency meetnigs to make sure that your child's needs are met in school.  She can also provide advice about any family needs and suggest who can help.
