Mrs Lucy Bullen-Smith – You, as parents and carers know your child the best. Therefore, a key part of my role as SENDCo (Special Education Needs and Disabilities Coordinator) is to get to know you and work in partnership with you to help your child reach their full potential.
In addition, my role is to support teachers and learning coaches to meet the needs of every child through planning, training, observation, organising specialist support and advice.
What qualifies me to do this? I have more than 20 years primary teaching experience and taught year 4 and 5 as a class teacher at UCPS since 2016. Alongside, I have continued on my own professional development journey. Recently, I have completed a Masters in Child Development, and I am currently finishing my National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination.
