  2. Q1. Fewer TAs but on plus side, better systems than ever for parental/teacher communications #ukedchat
  3. Better comms between staff/parents means it's easier to assess and accommodate students' individual needs #ukedchat
  4. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 Budgets are a real issue but focusing on ensuring quality first teaching meets their needs doesn't have additional financial implications.
  5. @UKEdSch A1 I find that technology is helpful. There are so many programs we can put on tablets for all levels, although...#UKEdChat
  6. @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat What do you think are the biggest barriers, Pran? Should quality first Teaching play a bigger part? #UKEdChat
  7. #UKEdChat Q2
How to quickly and effectively up-skill staff to be able to support children with complex needs?

  8. @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat I fear qft is a new buzz word! Yes do I have the skills to cater for the needs of all my pupils, I hope so. Do my RQTs? Not yet...
  9. @UKEdSch Other than that it is becoming really difficult. Schools are lucky if they even have that it seems. #UkEdChat
  10. @AKnibbs1 @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome Pran you say QFT is becoming a bit of a buzz word but is it not just effective teaching? Does it come down to is really knowing our pupils?
  11. A1 it’s probably one of the most difficult issues. You need people, its not just about increasing efficiency #UKEdChat
  12. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 By prioritising resources and ensuring that teachers have the skills to support SEND children within the classroom #A1
  13. @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat An interesting point. Agree about the potential issue with experience etc. Another reason why CPD is key #UKEdChat
  14. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @keran77 @michhayw If this was all able to be on the free ... how have we wasted all this tax payers budget! #ukedchat
  15. @UKEdSch #ukedchat Share resources, what works, internal expert advice & e-mail strategies for diff core groups
  16. Q2. Perhaps it's like the saying - out of good/cheap/fast you can only ever pick two #ukedchat
  17. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 A1: In class I tend to create my own resources and plan well. We have a Speech and Language therapist who works with staff because she's only in for two half days, feels she can make more of an impact this way. #UKEdChat
  18. @AKnibbs1 @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome This is exactly what I said but I don't think I replied to the thread correctly!
  19. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw We are running CPD and Action Research linked to differentiation and inclusion, so staff are empowered to explore and research #UKEdChat
  20. @MrsAHaz @ukedchat Great to have you chatting Mrs Haz. Can you explain a little more about how you support teachers to develop necessary skills etc. #UKEdChat

  22. @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw I wonder if we need more sharing and pooling of ideas. There's some seriously good practice out there but still many silos #UKEdResChat
  23. #ukedchat 1 We are lucky to have a diverse team of dedicated support staff, who know very well the students they work with day to day.
  24. @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw Look around, locally, nationally, internationally. Use technology to do so, if necessary. No excuse for us all not learning from one another
  25. Have you got an unhealthy work life balance? Here are the 4 signs that you may do...  http://ow.ly/Va5G30doGJx  #sltchat #ukedchat #womened
  26. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 A3 Nothing worse than everyone having their own ideas of what's best. Could make things harder for the student and family. #UkEdChat
  27. @smfeasey @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw These are the type of low cost ideas that we need to be growing. Money does not necessarily mean quality provision. Evidenced informed-key.
  28. @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat Through CPD, working with teachers and children in their classrooms, modelling effective teaching, supporting with planning.
  29. Please remember if you are joining in tonight's chat with @KLMorgan_2 use the #ukedchat hashtag.
  30. Making sure that when you meet with them, meetings are focussed, worthwhile and focussed on the children you all work with. #UKEdChat
  31. @KLMorgan_2 @smfeasey @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw What happens if you don't have the money to let's have the time to go and share - or get the expertise ? #ukedchat
  32. @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @michhayw Yes I agree. Sharing good practice with ppl with experience can be very useful #UKEdResChat
  33. @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw This relates to some much about education as a whole not just SEND provision #UkEdChat
  34. @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw Restructure internally and have a capable, skilled teacher take on the roll of roving SENCo-working collaboratively with colleagues+learners
  35. @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 A3 Many parents can be engaged once they are convinced you have the child's best interests at heart. #UKEdChat
  36. @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat I work with her. She comes in to observe my practice, picks out the positives and offers next steps. We are working on a mathematical language project for the school. #UKEdChat
  37. @WillFastiggi @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 Absolutely, Will. Plenty of things work but what works best for individuals is key as is context. Inquiry is needed to understand #UkEdChat
  38. @MrPatelsAwesome @KLMorgan_2 @smfeasey @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw Find a champion within the school, or local school....give staff time to get informed from free evidence & blogs etc #ukedchat
  39. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 A3. This is vital, yet so difficult to do in practice. EHCs would be much more effective if these agencies engaged fully.
  40. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 A3 communication is key. Making sure all parties are on the same page/ engaged. Professionals meetingsand use of liaison officer. #UKEdChat
  41. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 A1 Making sure chn with SEND have access to interventions that are proven to work with TAs being trained in them and QFT #UKEdChat
  42. @MrPatelsAwesome @KLMorgan_2 @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw Use time available well - ditch unnecessary, unproductive meetings. Time is a resource too. Priorities. SEND children must be up the list.
  43. @MrsAHaz @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat It's also an expectation that all members of SLT can support with the provision for SEND chn. @MrsAHaz brings the additional expertise
  44. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz #ukedchat A4 Yes for ensuring QFT, helping staff to understand the needs, developing rapport with parents of 'challenging' children...
  45. @smfeasey @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw The role of SENCo is such an important one and one that, in my opinion, should be on the SLT #UKEdChat
  46. @KLMorgan_2 @keran77 @ukedchat @michhayw On a whole school level ---#ukedchat ---the stupid competition culture (league tables)
  47. @keran77 @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 A barrier can sometimes be their own understanding. How can school's support with this vital partnership? #UkEdChat
  48. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz A4 It's a key role. Our SENCO is an asst headteacher, class teacher for 3.5 days and yr group leader = big picture is understood #UKEdChat
  49. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi A4. Absolutely! It can be difficult to have a real impact on the teaching and learning of SEN children without being part of SLT.
  50. @smfeasey @MrPatelsAwesome @KLMorgan_2 @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw Invest in the right areas, not necessarily with money. Use people, their time & passion for improving standards etc #culture #ukedchat
  51. @ukedchat @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker @UnioByHarness #ukedchat A4 They can be the most efficient way of ensuring SLT have a good grasp of the needs of pupils and how they are being met.
  52. @KLMorgan_2 @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw Yes. Not that I am a fan of all this 'gaps' talk but it really is a top priority. So long as we see the top top priority being the child.
  53. @gazneedle @ukedchat @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker @UnioByHarness #UKEdChat, A4, Absolutely! SEN pupils are a minority group in most schools and SENCO is meant to bridge a very wide gap for these pupils.
  54. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz The provision within our MAT has improved since in school Inclusion Leaders have joined their respective SLT.
  55. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching #ukedchat A5 Of course. Most of us are flying blind with SEND, teaching ourselves as we go along. We must have a more cohesive program...
  56. Q4 - not so sure. Certainly a middle leader because they have a foot in the classroom and in middle leadership #UkEdChat
  57. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall If raising standards is important & at the core, then yes! One size doesn't fit all, greater insight can only be a good thing #ukedchat
  58. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching A5. Yes. This is a key focus that teachers should know how to manage SEN and What EHCP's are and strategies to help the child! #UKEdChat

  60. @gazneedle @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching Not saying it shouldn't be but do trainee teachers understand the gravity of it. Schools should lead on developing this in new teachers.
  61. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A5 Yes definitely, from what I have seen not enough teachers are trained to deal with SS with SEND. Some SS can continue to be educated in a mainstream setting if more teachers were trained in this area, instead of being moved to a specialist provision. #UkEdChat
  62. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching #ukedchat A5 (1) If we get the training right, many SEND students can remain in mainstream to get the best of both worlds where...
  63. @gazneedle @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching In Sweden we had one course that dabbled in SEND but, as someone with a disability, I thought it was a cringeworthy experience.
  64. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Q5 It should be made a much higher priority than it is now. How can you fully meet the needs of all children as an NQT without training?
  65. @gazneedle @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching I also fear the label and stigma sticking and encumbering teacher development, rather than the child having learning needs like ALL others.
  66. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw A2 #ukedchat Through observations of children with similar conditions to ones being faced in a class.Too much SEN training is non specific.
  67. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @MrBentleyTweets Yes, as they are for all pupil groups within our schools. The provision and outcomes for SEN pupils are the responsibility of all leaders.
  68. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching A5: absolutely. I felt ill-equipped after my post-grad and have learned on the job over the years. #UKEdChat
  69. @ukedchat @char19baker @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching #ukedchat A6 (1) Well if all teachers are teachers of SEND, it should be a given that leaders in Ed are leaders of SEND.
  70. @smfeasey @gazneedle @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @OLewis_coaching Culture of the sch -SEND students stay in lessons and have quality first teaching.Not just with TA in the corner. @bcoops_online ? #ukedchat
  71. @ukedchat @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @UnioByHarness A4: I think it depends on the setting. I believe all members of SLT should have a grasp of SEND, this shouldn't be down to one person to educate others. #UkEdChat

  73. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A6. Everyone should be a leader of SEN. The responsibility is on each of us. If we dealt with SEN correctly, we would be a leader. #UkEdChat
  74. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A6. Absolutely. All members of SLT and year group leaders at our school place a really high priority on inclusion.
  75. @ukedchat @char19baker @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching #ukedchat A6 (2) The reality though is that some leaders are out of their depth or can't meet the need and maintain their outstanding data.
  76. @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @KLMorgan_2 @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker SEN training seems to be optional for many trainees, even though you cannot choose or predict whether you'll ever have SEND kids in your class.
  77. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 The best deal we can provide is by embedding inclusive practice at the heart of your curriculum design, part of the fibre of your school.
  78. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw A greater awareness of reality of school from professionals would help.Meeting individual needs shouldn't hinder the rest of class #ukedchat
  79. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A7: We're an SEND provision so this is at the top of our priority. Personally I'd like to share more of my expertise to help others. #UkEdChat
  80. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker It's very high. Each pupil progress meeting involves discussing progress and needs of SEND chn and provision. #UKEdChat
  81. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets All leaders work together to ensure the best provision and drive a strong ethos of inclusion throughout school.
  82. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz A4 #ukedchat I remember being told in ITT that the Senco was the only role a school legally needed to have in place to be operational
  83. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @katie_westacott #ukedchat A7 All children have learning needs. SEN should be served by those teachers with greatest expertise (not determined by age)
  84. #UKEdChat Q8

  85. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @katie_westacott #ukedchat a7: always high. However our previously higher attainers also need pushing so they achieve their potential.
  86. @smfeasey @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @katie_westacott I couldn't agree more. Too often you have least qualified with those who need the most qualified. Need those who understand #ukedchat
  87. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @char19baker Inclusive T&L is a big part of our school development plan, and differentiation is key to our CPD offer (workshops, briefings, AR) #UKEdChat
  88. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Q8. No, Alot of teachers still believe it is up to the SENCO. This is not true, we as individuals are responsible guided by SENCO #UkEdChat
  89. @UKEdSch A8 To some extent yes. For chn with v complex needs there's an understanding support will be needed from SENCO + external agencies #UKEdChat
  90. @katie_westacott @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching 1 I think it's time to change this. An understanding and experience of SEND should underpin good ITT provision. We know it's not one size...

  92. @katie_westacott @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @gazneedle @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching 2 fits all. But it does help to have some ideas of strategies or core knowledge related to many of the needs we encounter.
  93. @SummerAli786 @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A8: in my experience I have seen many pass this on to the SENDCO but I have met a few trainee teachers who have taken more of an interest, so maybe the culture is changing. #UkEdChat
  94. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela The strength of the SENCo is in their role as an advocate for the most vulnerable. An excellent teacher is an advocate for every child.
  95. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Q9. Not necessarily.It is advantageous but not good prep. There are key skills that are required to meet the demands of headship. #UkEdChat
  96. @KLMorgan_2 @keran77 @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Change the provision, depending on how long you have tried it for. A child with complex needs may need an it for longer to see any impact
  97. @MrPatelsAwesome @KLMorgan_2 @smfeasey @MrBentleyTweets @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw A2 Perhaps it is then time to do a skills audit with the work force - might be surprised who is employed to take up this issue #ukedchat
  98. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A9: I think it depends on whether they are currently on SLT; the combination I believe will prepare but I don't think the award itself does. #ukedchat
  99. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 #ukedchat A9 Didn't do me any harm. Personally, I think we need more first rate teachers as heads. I never became one. Time didn't allow.
  100. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker I started as SENCo, I'm now Deputy doing my Headship training, moral purpose is fundamental to the role at each level #UkEdChat
  101. @AKnibbs1 @MrPatelsAwesome @ukedchat @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker It would be interesting to hear how this has impacted their practice, beliefs and provision now that they are a HT #UkEdChat

  103. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz Definitely. At least Asst Head level, needs to be a key decision maker and policy shaper as well as strong advocate for SEND pupils.
  104. @MrsAHaz @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker It's as good preparation as leading any other large area, arguably better in someways due to all of the multi-agency/family work involved.
  105. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Can start with that SEN focus in initial teacher courses, but again, strong communication can make all the difference here. #UkEdChat
  106. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 Moved 'up' quick, bogged down with distractions thrust upon us from without and didn't serve my time in the classroom.
  107. @char19baker @SummerAli786 @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A8 the majority of our staff believe that they have responsibility for their complex needs children and support them extremely well.
  108. @KLMorgan_2 @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets Probably securing more opportunities and getting myself out there. I need to start offering my services but first I need others that are interested. 😊
  109. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker Each class is different and SEND needs will vary. Throughout a career, support + training/sharing of good practice is vital #UKEdChat

  113. @mr_bjones1986 @ukedchat @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets @char19baker I particularly like 'challenging staff to provide the best deal'. We are all Rez greed of SEND. No abdication of responsibility #UKEdChat
  114. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @mr_bjones1986 #ukedchat Q10 Follow with evaluation and the opportunity for an accredited research SEND project in the NQT year possibly as part of MA.
  115. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 #ukedchat A10 Focus focus focus on development of teacher expertise (the craft) -designing and causing learning a la @StonefieldsSch for ALL
  116. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A10: I've always researched, observed others and sought the advice of experienced SEND practitioners. Schools could provide their staff with more opportunities to see other SEND provisions or invite them in to deliver training. #UkEdChat
  117. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @mr_bjones1986 #ukedchat Q10 Then extra funding could be offered to each school that implements any beneficial findings of SEND research.

  121. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 @fmath75 Q11. Yes. I strongly believe there needs to be additional training. Not as in-depth as the NASENCO but an addition all the same. #UkEdChat
  122. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @mr_bjones1986 @fmath75 #ukedchat A11 Yeah but I think the SENCO could be a key source of that training, making their role even more cost effective.
  123. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 Q11. Yes. Teacher training courses do not prepare new teachers for the range of needs they will meet. 1/2 #ukedchat
  124. @ukedchat @UnioByHarness @smfeasey @CMRaymontHall @OLewis_coaching @Tackela @mr_bjones1986 Coaching, mentoring, Inclusion drop-ins, opportunities to lead workshops, mini-bites. In essence, SEND as an integral part of CPD #UKEdChat
  125. @UKEdSch @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz @AKnibbs1 @MrBentleyTweets A11-I believe so, we are starting to see a rise in SS with SEND; some are more complex than others and no SS presents the same, regardless of what is on their EHCP. There should be more training to support tchrs so they can do their job properly #ukedchat
  126. Thanks for all the interaction tonight #UkEdChat. Come say hello throughout the week or check out my blog:  http://technologyforlearners.com/ 
  127. @ukedchat @KLMorgan_2 @MrPatelsAwesome @keran77 @michhayw @WillFastiggi @MrsAHaz A4. Definitely. Their role is so complex and there needs to be a leader in every school with that expertise. #ukedchat
  128. Thank you to those who were able to join in. The role of SENDCo is key. The quality of teaching is key. The role of CPD is vital. #UKEdChat  https://twitter.com/ukedchat/status/913493993140482048 β€¦
