NE Lincs Spring Term SENCo Forum
On 27 February 2023 over 60 SENCos and professionals gathered together at Centre4 in Grimsby for the Spring Term NE Lincs SENCo Forum.
The focus for this term was learning and cognition. Rachel Barnes from NE Lincs Specialist Teaching Advisory Service gave SENCo’s the opportunity for a first look at NE Lincs Graduated Response for Learning and Cognition. This will be available for parent carers and professionals on NE Lincs SEND Local Offer.
SENCOs were also introduced to Jane Starbuck from NASEN/DfE Whole School SEND and provided with access to a range of SEND responses and CPD opportunities.
Take a look at our SEND training and events page to book your place on one of the following courses.
