SNJ In Conversation: SEND training for SENCOs and school leaders with Anne Heavey and Hannah Moloney

Today's SNJ in Conversation is offering tips for everyone interested in improving SEND teaching. While schools are still on their summer break, thoughts will be turning towards going back in September and how to effectively manage social distancing, bubbles and helping children catch up.

But as our survey evidenced, children with SEND are more likely to have missed out on learning. It's more important than ever for school staff to educate themselves in how to support children with additional needs, or children who just learn differently. And that includes the school senior leadership team.

As director of Whole School SEND, Anne Heavey explained here, they have produced a whole suite of fantastic SEND learning resources, all co-produced with parents (including me). In our latest episode of SNJ in Conversation, Anne is back with me, and we're joined by SNJ columnist, Hannah Moloney, expert SENCO and Dyslexia specialist to discuss the state of SEND training. The discussion includes an incredibly interesting "potted history" of SEND and why training in the UK is so far behind that in some other countries.
