Sindy’s professional training includes SENCO training and implementing SEN interventions and support, and has attended many courses to enhance her knowledge of current SEN practice. Sindy has worked alongside Kerry, our lead SENCO, over many years to provide group and 1.1 support for children who require extra assistance to reach their optimum potential.
