Just joining in this message.
1st of all thank you for sharing document and books to read.
I too am new to this role. Learning as I go.
As my school is linked with 8/ 9 boroughs, it was helpful to introduce myself to SEN coordinator from the various boroughs. They are very helpful. I also read the EHCP’s to familiarise myself with the various difficulties the students have. Came across many I wasn’t expecting and researched about them.
Spoke to/ introduced myself to the parents if the Annual reviews were imminent.
Making a SENCO folder now.
