NAHT comments on SENCO study

Responding to a new report on the role of the special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) by Bath Spa University in collaboration with nasen, James Bowen, director of policy for school leaders' union NAHT, said:

“It is a real concern that SENCOs are finding more and more of their time is being taken up with paperwork and bureaucracy. Ultimately this means leas support for the children and staff who need it. We urgently need to find ways to reduce this bureaucratic burden on SENCOs; developing a single, national template for EHC plans would seem an obvious and easy first step.”
