Making SEN Make SENse
Welcome to SENDCO Solutions, where expertise meets excellence in special educational needs support. Led by Abigail Hawkins, a seasoned SEN specialist with over 25 years of experience as a SENCO, our company is dedicated to ensuring that your school and staff stay fully compliant with the SEND Code of Practice while effectively addressing SEN challenges.
Abigail, renowned as both the “SENSible SENCO” on social media and the “SENDCOs SENDCO” in publications, possesses a unique ability to solve complex SEN issues while maintaining strict adherence to legal requirements. With her at the helm, we provide comprehensive guidance and support to SENCOs, governors, heads, and senior leadership teams in developing their school’s SEN program.
At SENDCO Solutions, we understand that each school is unique and requires a tailored approach to SEN provision. Our flagship service, the Whole School SEN Review, offers a thorough evaluation of your school’s current SEN practices and provides detailed recommendations for future development. We are frequently commissioned to deliver keynote speeches, CPD training sessions, and comprehensive SEN review packages for schools, local authorities, and multi-academy trusts.
In addition to supporting schools, SENDCO Solutions also collaborates with educational companies to develop and promote SEN products that have a meaningful impact on the targeted student population. Our expertise extends beyond the educational sector, as we have successfully assisted non-educational settings in crafting robust inclusion policies. Furthermore, we take pride in our partnership with United Learning, where we have played a pivotal role in creating one of the most esteemed teaching assistant apprenticeship programs available.
