SENCO forums are for all SENCOs in early years settings. They are an opportunity to share and acquire news and information about SEN issues and the role of the SENCO. The sessions allow for sharing and discussion of ideas and practice, as well as discussion around a particular area of interest. They allow for you to keep in touch and up to date, as well as network with other SENCOs.
In this session we will be looking more in depth at the APDR with a particular focus on SEND observations. We aim to examine the core features of successful observation practice. There will be opportunities to reflect on your own observation practice and to look in more detail at the IIT observation information and template.
