The Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator (SENDCo), in collaboration with the Headteacher and Governing Body, takes responsibility for the operation of the SEND Policy and the co-ordination of the special needs provision, working closely with staff, parents/carers andother agencies.
The SENDCo also provides professional guidance to colleagues to ensure high quality teachingfor pupils with SEND.
All staff have responsibility for the progress of pupils with SEND and will therefore be involved as necessary to support the needs of the child or young person, including class teachers, subject teachers, teaching assistants, HoDs and Heads of Sections. All those who work with young children should be alert to the emerging difficulties and respond early.
Jill Moorcroft (The King’s School, Canterbury) and Alicia Ford (The Junior King’s School,
Canterbury) currently hold the SENDCo post in the respective schools.
At the heart of a King’s education is the dual pursuit of academic and extra-curricular excellence. The self-discipline, intellect and wide-ranging interests that such a pursuit engenders are highly prized in our modern global society. The quality of the teaching and the breadth of the activities outside the classroom mean that the lessons learnt and the skills acquired stay with the pupils for life
