Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Michelle - SENCo
We provide childcare for children requiring additional support

Our SEN Statement of Intent

At Lynwood we are committed to the inclusion of all children. All children have the right to be cared for and educated to fulfil their full potential alongside their peers, and we believe that each child’s needs are unique, and we work hard to ensure no child is discriminated against or put at a disadvantage.

Meet our SENCo

My name is Michelle and I am the SENCo at Lynwood. I have been working with SEN children for the past 4 years as their 1 to 1 SEN key worker and I have been an Early Years Educator for the past 10 years. I am very passionate about SEN, in fact all children and I love them seeing growing up, learning and developing – it is such a rewarding role to be in. At the moment, I am doing my SENCO Level 3 qualification with I hopefully complete in June 2024. I am so excited to take on this role and take part of the learning journey of our SEN children at Lynwood and beyond.

The steps we take to ensure all children have a quality education

What the SENCO Does

The SENCo role has many different elements including, leading a team, co-ordinating support, empowering practitioners, and families, supporting families, modelling practice, providing resources and strategies for children, advocating on behalf of children and families, training, and mentoring.

The SENCo supports families in a wide range of different situations, including discussing concerns about development, arranging support, and applying for funding, making referrals, providing help and advice but most importantly being a person of support for parents and families through what can be a very difficult time.

Why Choose Us?

Parent Partnership

Parent partnership is vital to ensure a child centred approach; you know your child best and without your support and involvement your child is likely not to receive the best possible support. My role as SENCo is to build those trusting relationships where you feel that you can share your thoughts and feelings.

Parents must know that they can rely on the SENCo as an important member of their child’s life, and I will do everything I can to ensure the greatest care for your child. I am extremely proud of the relationships with parents and families I have built over the years, standing in their corner so that your child is able to fulfil his/her full potential and achieve the very best he/she can, no matter the ability.  

What we can offer

All children are welcomed into our Lynwood family with open arms, we will always provide the best care, education and support we can. Over the years we have provided multiple children and families with a range of provisions including, one to one support, tailored individual learning programmes and creative sensory environments.
