Perspectives on the EHCP journey to enhance practice
AN ONLINE TRAINING COURSE FOR SENCOS
The new headteacher standards and the current inspection framework strengthen the national commitment to ambitious expectations for pupils with SEND and to cultures and practices that enable pupils to access the curriculum and learn effectively.
The current drive to develop leaders who can provide a strong curriculum that is ambitious for pupils with SEND will present challenges for all schools both during and after this C-19 pandemic.
OFSTED are gathering information about how schools are addressing issues relating to SEND during this C-19 pandemic.
- The session is an overview of the Code of Practice to develop understanding of the difference between the spirit of the code and the statutory framework it outlines.
- This will walk through the EHCP process from the Child/Parent, Teacher, SENDCo and Local Authority perspectives in order to enhance the quality of EHCP applications.
- To support this we will also discuss the effectives of the school’s graduated approach to put the EHCP application in context of SEND provision that is reasonably expected according to the spirit of the Code of Practice and its background in the Lamb Enquiry.
- Delegates will come away with example EHCP applications of varying quality to help support improved approaches to the process linked to the school’s assess, plan, do review cycle.
