Achievements

South East SENCo Support has successfully supported schools to improve their provision for individual children with SEN, and to improve their whole school SEN offer. They have supported professionals to navigate the complicated world of statutory requirements and to deliver appropriate, high quality and personalised provision to those children and young people with SEND. They have supported parents, carers and family members of children and young people with SEN to navigate the complicated and sometimes confronting SEND processes and procedures and have ensured that the best education, health, social care and employment outcomes were achieved. South East SENCo Support have supported young people who have experienced school-based anxiety to successfully reintegrate back into a school setting or to engage with home education.

About

Maree has a family history of special educational needs, and has long had an interest in ensuring children with SEND are able to achieve their own individual outcomes and giving them the best opportunities for a full and rich life. Charlotte’s brother has a diagnosis of Down’s Syndrome, and has been the source of her dedication to improve the lives of those people with SEND and their families. Both women are neurodiverse and work hard to champion SEN within educational settings as well as with the organisations that they partner with.
