In our school we have a governor who is responsible for special educational needs. Her name is Mrs Y Ali.
Her job is to meet with the SENCo and Headteacher regularly. In these meetings the SEN governor makes sure that children, young people and families are being supported by the right services from in and outside of school. The SEN Governor is involved in the whole school monitoring schedule. In addition the Headteacher and SENCo have to give a report to the SEN governor twice a year.
The SEN Governor shares this report with the other governors so that the whole governing body is aware of how special educational needs are being supported in the school and how well this support is working. The governors will challenge, support and advise the head teacher if appropriate provision isn't being made.
