Who is Mrs Culy and why is she SENDCo?
I am Mrs Culy ( you should see my photo to the left). I was diagnosed as being dyslexic when I was at university and since then I have become more and more passionate that Special Educational Needs. It is not about a label that limits what we can do but about being creative about how we do things. Reading drains my brain of energy so you might see me wearing some funny blue glasses that help me to read for much longer before getting tired.
The key learning for me through my SENDCo training was about how pupils with Special Educational Needs have the best chance of success if they have a great support team to work with them. That is my key role in school, not to be the team but to ensure that all the best members of the team are involved, the teachers, pupils, parents and other professionals.
I have taught a range of pupils with various needs over the years, including pupils with cochlear implants, dyslexia, ASD and attachment disorders. I am not an expert about any specific need, but I will work to find out all that I can from the pupil themselves, their parents and any other experts in the field.
