Book Description

Are you overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork that SEN generates in your school? Would you like to spend more time actually improving the quality of teaching and learning for pupils with SEN or disabilities? If so, this is an essential book for you.

Containing practical strategies for reducing the number of individual education plans and review meetings, ‘Beating Bureaucracy’ will help you to use existing systems for target setting, recording and planning – personalised systems that are used for all children as part of everyday teaching practices. The book showcases the work of four schools that have successfully developed ways of planning provision, working with parents, and supporting staff development. Ready-to-use proforma in the book are also available online, and include:

  • a model policy to give to Ofsted to explain why the school does not use IEPs
  • an information sheet for parents
  • curriculum planning formats
  • strategy sheets that can be highlighted and given to class and subject teachers
  • proformas for commonly used interventions that describe the intervention, its target group, its entry and exit criteria, and monitoring and evaluation arrangements.

This invaluable resource will help you (in the words of one SENCO) ‘get your life back’. Adopting the new and more effective ways of working presented here will reduce the bureaucratic burden on your school – whilst at the same time improving the impact of your SEN provision on children’s learning and well-being.

She is passionate about achieving better life chances for children who don't have much going for them in their lives - particularly disadvantaged children and those with special educational needs. She writes practical books that aim to help teachers and says 'What I do when I write is collect the fantastic practice I have seen on my travels and try to put a conceptual framework around it, linking practice to research evidence.' Jean has been a teacher, an educational psychologist, head of children's services in a local authority, and a Visiting Fellow at two universities. She was until recently the UK government's Communication Champion for children, responsible for promoting the importance of good language skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for practical inclusion 29 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
This book has informed much of my work as a SEN Coordinator / Head of Learning Support. It provides simple ways to plan interventions, write individual education plans etc. plus it has a range of strategy banks covering Dyslexia, ADHD, Autism, Speech and Language Difficulties and so on.

The role of SENCo can become drowned in paperwork, with the postholder finding themselves reduced to little more than a beaurocrat / administrator - this book helps free you from this burden and allows you to get on with the real work of working with students and colleagues to make schools more inclusive and supportive in practice.

If you're a teacher taking on responsibility in the field of Special Needs / Additional Needs and only have 20 to spend then I would say this is THE one book to buy (for now!).
