SENCO, Jill Manley, talks to us about her day-to-day work tailoring learning for children with SEN

Jill Manley

How did your background lead you to become a special educational needs coordinator?

l had been teaching in a school for three years when our special educational needs coordinator (SENCO) went on maternity leave. I volunteered to cover and when she chose not to return I happily accepted the job on a permanent basis. I didn’t have specific experience of teaching SEN children, although as a student I’d worked with profoundly disabled children.

Over the seven years that I have been SENCO the role has evolved significantly. I am now Inclusion Leader, meaning that as well as coordinating and overseeing provision for children with SEN, I do the same for more able children, gifted and talented children, children with English as an additional language and any other children that may require additional provision in school.
