Welcome to Headteacher Update’s 2018 SEN supplement. All teachers are teachers of pupils with SEN and this free publication – sponsored by Pearson – is aimed at offering advice and support to professionals working in mainstream schools across the country.

Throughout the year, SEN best practice advice features regularly within the pages of Headteacher Update – offering whole-school guidance to school leaders and classroom support and advice for teachers.

This supplement continues what is one of our most important areas of focus. Today, the range of SEN that mainstream schools support is wider than ever.

While in this short supplement we could never touch upon the entire gamut of specific needs that teachers are likely to encounter, we have set out to offer general best practice advice for teaching staff to help ensure proper inclusion in the classroom.

For school leaders, we have focused on wider issues of safeguarding and meeting the requirements of the SEN Code of Practice.

Finally, we have included one specific SEN focus – speech, language andcommunication needs (SLCN). This has become an increasingly critical area in recent years and we include a case study and advice on identifying and supporting needs.
