In our school we have a governor who is responsible for special educational needs. Her name is Shabana Ahmad
Their job is to meet with the SENCo regularly. In these meetings the SEND Governor makes sure that children and families are being supported by the right services from in and outside of school. The SEND Governor may 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 SENCo have to give a report to the SEND Governor twice a year. The SEND 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.
