Working with Independent Schools

At Senco Services we understand that SEND within private and independent schools presents a different set of challenges in comparison to mainstream education.

Working with your team, Senco Services can become an extension of your SEND provision, offering you a broad range of services and capabilities on demand as and when you need them.

Should there be a SEND challenge that your team are not familiar with, or your team need refresher training to ensure they are effective and knowledgeable, or you need student assessment, reports or diagnosis; we can support your team with our skills.

If you are interested in understanding how Senco Services can assist your school, please get in touch for a free discussion.
