Marguerite Haye joined us as a columnist toward the end of 2015.
Marguerite is a teacher and has taught for over a decade, in various positions from primary to further education. Marguerite has always had huge success with teaching children and young people (CYP) with special educational needs (SEN). Marguerite left teaching due to the political change in education and was fearful for the outcomes of CYP with SEN.
Marguerite has been leading on the transfer from statements to EHCPS in a local authority in the South East and most recently, she is a SEN consultant at local authority in the East Midlands. Her youngest daughter has a long term-illness but was diagnosed late at the end of her secondary education. Marguerite is very passionate about the learner voice and wants to ensure they achieve the best outcomes. Marguerite is hoping that sharing her knowledge and experiences can help all who read her blogs.
We're very excited to have Marguerite as a columnist and hope she will bring lots of examples of good practice that parents can be empowered by and practitioners can learn from.
