Transforming the role of the SENCO

Fiona Hallett, Graham Hallett

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The preparation of a second edition of Transforming the Role of the SENCo has offered a timely opportunity for a reconsideration of the education landscape surrounding the role, and the National Award for SEN Coordination. The passage and implementation of the Children and Families Act (DfE, 2014a) has led to fundamental changes in the way that procedures to identify, assess, and provide for, children and young people with special educational needs and/or disability are operationalised. The introduction of the third SEN(+D) Code of Practice (DfE/ DoH, 2015) has provided an extended requirement for what ‘should’ and ‘must’ be done by stakeholders within special needs education. This book aims to address this changing landscape.
