Being a SENCo and working in SEND is tough!
The SENCo has one of the toughest jobs in education. The same is true for SEN teachers too. You advocate for the children you work with, try and get clear on their individual needs, listen to and work with teaching colleagues, work within school policies and juggle many, many other plates. This is before you have worked on your whole school SEN strategy, before you have applied for EHCP's or done your annual reviews and before you have worked out what provision needs to be delivered! No wonder we all feel a little overwhelmed and like we need some support.
As SENCos and SEN teachers ourselves, we don't think you should have to go it alone. We know how hard but utterly rewarding your day to day role can be.
Imagine going from feeling a little lost, to totally supported. Imagine saving hours creating new documents because you found everything you need within our templates section. Imagine chatting through your issues at school weekly with likeminded colleagues online or getting a quick reminder about the traits of a specific SEN profile via a bitesize video training right when you need it. Need some insightful reviews into useful technology? We got you. Need ideas about how to manage your workload? We cover that too. It's all in here, and we are here to support you every step of the way. When you join SEN Buddy, whether just for a while or forever - you will:
SAVE TIME: as you no longer have to search everywhere for that document you saw once on facebook
REDUCE HASSLE: use our editable templates and documents to save you having to reinvent the wheel
SAVE MONEY: going on training courses with a whole host of providers when everything you need is inside SEN Buddy

A monthly membership to guide and support you.
We have been there and done it too. We have tried to find ways of standardising our teaching practices and creating fancy looking documents that capture key information.
We have spent hours looking up how to support specific pupils with SEND, and we have had the tough conversations with parents.
We know exactly how you feel as our team has either been in the SENCo in the past or are still in the role now. Our mission is to support you so that your job gets easier and that as a consequence, the pupils you work with benefit from that too.
Done for you resources
We add new documents on a weekly basis to our library. Check out our library to find exactly what you need.
Strategies for dealing with all SEN profiles
Every child is unique with their own individual strengths and weaknesses. We offer you strategies for working with the variety of profiles with key tips and ideas for success.
Access online webinars and training as and when you need it. A quick revision of how an SEN presents itself - yep! A quick revision of key access arrangements - we have that too!
Blended Learning Trainings
Who said you can teach from home? Covid did! We cover how to set up your tech to teach from home, with ideas for making your teaching more effective.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT
CAROLINE SIMKIN, SENCO (Primary Phase)
At last, some clarity and support that will help make a difference for these learners on a practical level in the classroom. Thank you!
JULIE DOWNS, SENCO
Lizzie gave physical strategies, a lot of courses seem to give the what and the why but not the how to support with SEN
SHARON ROBERTS, (EYFS Manager)
SEN Buddy is a real tonic for anyone working in education from Early Year's upwards. The knowledge is shared in friendly way and the advice is given with empathy. I will definitely be back again for more chats and webinars.
