In our school we have a governor who is responsible for special educational needs.
Their job is to meet with the inclusion manager regularly. In these meetings the SEN governor make sure that children, young people and families are being supported by the right services from in and outside of school. The SEN Governor will also visit the school, observe what happens in classrooms and meet with class teachers, support staff and children and young people.
In addition the Head teacher and Inclusion Manager have to give a report to the SEN governor twice a year. The SEN Governor shares this report with the other governors so that the whole governing body is aware of how special educational needs are being supported in the school and how well this support is working. The governors will challenge, support and advise the head teacher if appropriate provision isn’t being made.
