    hi, it depends on the size of your school. We have currently 850 total cohort with around 40 students per exam year with some kind of AA. I have an assistant SENCo and she spends a huge amount of her time every week on this role – and that is with an external specialist tester. I used to do it all myself but the SENCo role is now insanely overloaded with statutory EHCP work so I have had to delegate all but the decisions and the AAO. One of the difficulties is that you cannot just sit down and ‘get a student done’ – it is a long protracted process with going back and forth to teachers for evidence, reviewing what you have, data protection forms, form filling, training the students to use technology – it is a lot!!
