“Liz is a highly skilled and knowledgable professional, with a deep commitment to supporting children with SEND. Her advice and support were invaluable in my preparation for the SENCo role, and have ensured that my first year has been both manageable and free of crisis. She is organised, methodical, and has great compassion and empathy for children who fall under her remit. I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor to introduce me to the challenging, complex, but deeply gratifying work that comes along with the SENCo role.”
