School SENCOs

Core Standards

The Haringey core standards for SEND set out the Local Authority’s expectations for the quality of provision for pupils with SEND in mainstream educational settings in Haringey.

This year, our SENDCo Support Partners will deliver training on each of the core standards aimed at all school senior leaders. You can attend the whole series or the ones you are interested in.

You can read more about the offer in the training brochure: Education Inclusion Team: Core, Traded and Training Brochure (PDF, 5.3 MB)

Primary school speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) pathway

The SLCN  SEND speech and language pathway (PDF, 160KB) for primary school-aged children changed on 1 September 2023.

You can read more about how to explain the pathway to parents here on the Speech and Language Therapy Service webpage.

New referral forms for the Speech and Language Therapy Service are available to download here on our Useful Forms for SENDCos webpage.

Talk to your language support teacher or school therapist if you need to learn more about the pathway.

Self-Evaluation and Action Planning for SEND

All schools are asked to use the 4-point Haringey Evaluation schedule to self-evaluate their SEND provision. The outcomes of this should be recorded on the Evaluate My School portal and updated at least once within the school year.

All headteachers and SENDCos are allocated a login for Evaluate My School. EvaluateMySchool – Expert Education Evaluation (external link) If you need a new login, please contact ellika.mcauley@haringey.gov.uk.

As a recourse, the SEND Action Plan template (Word, 212KB) is available for schools to use.

SENDCo Support Partners

SENDCO Support Partners is a team of experienced SENDCos who work for Haringey Education Partnership (HEP) and support schools and SENDCos through consultancy, training, networks and coaching.

The local authority commissions some support from the team, but schools can also commission it themselves.

SENDCo Mainstream Cluster Groups

These are groups of local mainstream schools, separated by phase, led by a SENDCo Support Partner, meet each term to:

  • develop school capacity to meet the needs of children with SEND by strengthening collaborative partnerships to support and challenge.
  • create a distributed leadership model for SEND across Haringey
  • maximise the use of resources through joint commissioning to achieve economies of scale and targeting support.
  • improve consistency of provision for children across Haringey schools

SEND Training

The SENDCo forums are a great place to meet other SENDCos who work across Haringey mainstream schools and provide an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise about different aspects of special educational needs and inclusion.

The agenda for our forums is driven by our SENCos and focuses on topics they would like further reflection on and support with. We also regularly invite organisations and speakers to our networks. Hence, it's a brilliant way of deepening your knowledge of what's available locally, the national SEND picture, and networking with others in the field of SEND. The dates for the forums for 2023-24 are:

  • Wednesday 1 November 2023 - 9am to 12.30pm
  • Wednesday 21 February 2024 - 9am to 12.30pm
  • Wednesday 5 June 2024 - 9am to 12.30pm

They take place online or in local schools.

In addition to the SENDCo forum, the Educational Inclusion team and Educational Psychology Service provide an extensive SEND training programme. The programme includes both online and face-to-face sessions delivered centrally and sessions which can be personalised for delivery to individuals or groups of schools.

The SEND training offer is a traded service that can be purchased as a package that costs £3 per pupil with discounts if you subscribe to the HEP or Early Years packages or on a pay-as-you-go basis.

You can find out what's on by looking in our brochure, below. To book your place email ellika.mcauley@haringey.gov.uk
