Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in School

Welcome Message from school SENDCo

Mrs Fuller

Dear Parents & Carers

I have worked as SENDCo (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-Ordinator) at Whitwick St John the Baptist since September 2016. Alongside working as SENDCo, I have been teaching for over 15 years and I have taught in a range of different schools. I have taught all year groups from Reception to Year 6 and co-ordinated a number of different subjects, including the SENDCo role throughout various schools. 

My specialist area of interest is in Speech and Language and how this feeds into all other aspects of school and daily life. I support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, their class teacher and families to ensure that all children can achieve their true potential.

I am passionate about achieving success for Whitwick and I am proud to be a member of such a fantastic team!

You are welcome to contact me to discuss your child’s SEND requirements via the school office or on Weduc (S Fuller). Our SEND policy can be found here
