SENCO Network


The SENCO Network is led by Lorraine Petersen OBE and Helen Pretty as a collaborative project between Chadsgrove Training School and Worcestershire Children First. Firmly established as a highly valued resource, providing regular updates, expert advice and interactive discussion the network supports SENCOs in Worcestershire to develop effective practice.

Because the SENCO role is unique within schools, it may feel isolated. Our SENCO Network offers the chance to share concerns, gain advice on specific issues, and identify good practice with colleagues.

Membership of the SENCO Network includes attendance at termly meetings, a termly newsletter with important updates on SEN policy, and one delegate place at the annual SENCO conference. Additional conference places are available to SENCO Network schools at a reduced delegate rate.

Membership costs £230 for each academic year and runs from September to July. Please complete the membership form below and return it to

Membership can be commenced at any time, and SENCOs wishing to join the network more than one term into the year may be entitled to a discounted rate. Please contact for further information.
