Welcome to my end of term newsletter
I have had a very busy term and I wanted to let you know some of the things I have been up to that might be useful to you and your school.
DfE guidance on Sexual violence and harassment between children: As you will be aware the DfE has issued new guidance on for schools and colleges on managing sexual violence and harassment between children. I have written a summary of the guidance and identify some possible actions in response to it for schools. You can find this with my blogs. Hope you find it helpful.
Safeguarding Audit: I have been working with Civica Education to produce an online safeguarding audit and self-evaluation tool. If you want more details, please contact Keith Lucas at Keith.Lucas@civica.co.uk or you can watch the webinar I produced at . There will be a further webinar at the end of January- watch on my Twitter ) and LinkedIn for details.
Learning Resources for the Houses of Parliament Education Service: One of the most exciting projects of the year has been a collaboration with the Education Service to update many of their learning resources to make them more SEN friendly. I was unaware how many brilliant resources there on their website. Do check it out!
Also, I delivered training to their visits team to support their new ‘quiet days’ for special schools. More information here
Inclusion Expert: I am really enjoying working with a great group of consultants for Inclusion Expert https://www.inclusionexpert.com/. I have taken part in TA audits for various school across the country and written two online TA courses on:
• Supporting Learning in the lesson
• Pre- and over-learning
Safer Recruitment: I am delighted to announce that I am now an accredited safer recruitment trainer with the Safer Recruitment Consortium. I will be running a full day Safer Recruitment course for The Guildford Schools Confederation in May. I am hoping to run a second course in March or April. Please register your interest by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I continue to provide special needs and safeguarding training and SENCo support to the Guildford Schools Confederation, Xavier Catholic Education Trust, individual schools and faith organisations. If you want more details, please let me know.
I look forward to working with you in the new Year.
Wishing you Season’s Greetings and a happy and peaceful New Year.
