Abstract

Now in its third year, Bath Spa University and nasen have continued their research into the role of the SENCO through the National SENCO Workforce Survey 2020. However, a crucial difference with the 2020 survey was the exceptional time period during which it took place. Schools have had to respond immediately to this unprecedented event. To this end in addition to exploring the SENCO role in general, the 2020 survey also focused on capturing the experiences of SENCOs and their schools in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The survey opened on 24th August 2020 and closed on 5th October 2020. The survey asked SENCOs to consider their experiences in school, from when schools closed to the majority of children and young people (YP) in March 2020 to the present day. This report covers the findings.
