  • Overseeing the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEN policy
  • Co-ordinating provision for children with SEN
  • Liaising with the relevant designated teacher where a ‘looked after’ pupil has SEN
  • Advising on the graduated approach to providing SEN support
  • Advising on the deployment of the school’s resources to meet pupils’ needs effectively
  • Liaising with parents of pupils with SEN
  • Liaising with early years providers, other schools, educational psychologists, health and social care professionals, and independent or voluntary bodies
  • Being a key point of contact with external agencies, especially the local authority and its support services
  • Liaising with potential next providers of education to ensure a pupil and their parents are informed about options and a smooth transition is planned
  • Working with the head teacher and school governors to ensure that the school meets its responsibilities with regard to reasonable adjustments and access arrangements
  • ensuring that the school keeps the records of all pupils with SEN up to date
