Curran, H, Moloney, H, Heavey, A and Boddison, A (2020) The time is now: addressing missed opportunities for Special Educational Needs Support and Coordination in our schools. Bath Spa University, Bath.

Abstract

In September 2018, the National Education Union (NEU), nasen and Bath Spa University conducted a joint research project exploring the workload of Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCO) in schools. The National SENCO Workload Survey received over 1900 responses and led to the publication of the report, 'It’s about time: The impact of SENCO workload on the professional and the school' (Curran et al., 2018). The research team undertook a review of the survey in October 2019, with the aim of exploring whether the report had impacted on SENCOs and, as a consequence, outcomes for children with additional needs. The review also explored the current issues and priorities SENCOs, and others, have identified in relation to the development of Special Educational Needs (SEN) in their settings. The review received over 1800 responses. This report sets out the key findings, and related recommendations, from the review.
