Working with Academy Trusts

At Senco Services we work with Multi-Academy Trusts to streamline and standardise the SEND process across their schools.

Our team can work with your leadership and SEND teams to define effective ways of working, ensuring that standards across your trust meet the SEND Code of Practice and that there is consistency to process, documentation and procedures.

We have developed our own approach to ensuring SEND excellence, that we call the ‘Three Pillars of SEND Progress’ – designed to help create high performing SEND teams, it focuses on Consistency, Quality and Collaboration. This approach not only streamlines a Trust’s SEND practices but makes them measureable, allowing ongoing adjustment to improve the provision within your SEND teams.

In addition to our consultancy, we also perform independent audits of your SEND practices with RAG ratings, reviewing your schools against typical Ofsted criteria and the SEND code of practice, helping you proitise and identify areas for development.

Make no mistake we are hands on, we will also support your SENDCos, deliver relevant training in areas such as JCQ updates, the SEND Code of Practice, Interventions and Safeguarding.

Many Academy Trusts are seeing the value of aligning and co-ordinating their SEND in this way.
