Details of our Services
Our Foundation Package ensures schools are kept up to date on all issues of inclusion including changes in legislation at government and local level. We do this through phone and email support to a named Inclusion Consultant, three inclusion briefings a year for SENCOs and pupil premium leaders, and a monthly newsletter. The package also includes access to our website which is the ‘one stop shop’ for the busy SENCO. The website has a range of resources to support schools and SENCOs in all aspects of their work. It is updated monthly to ensure schools are up to date on the latest research and developments.
