Our Community And The Hive Mind.
Setup back in 2019 the SENsible SENCO Facebook group was a safe place for SENCOs to discuss the best way to support their students needs. There are no “stupid” questions and everyone there has one common goal, what is best for the pupil.
We know SENCOing is a very lonely role and with the SENCO Community beside you, you never need to feel like this again. While the Facebook Community looks after the discussions and day-to-day help. This website holds all the resources, videos, links and anything else we can find to help SENCOs. While there are a small amount of paid items, the majority is free and paid for via our educational supplier sponsors. We are constantly growing the website and with the help of our friends it will become the place for all SENCO information!
An SEN Hive Mind
SENsible SENCO Community gives training and advice for SENCOs/ALNCOs across the UK. You think the SENCO role is a lonely one? No one to support and help you? Well you haven’t seen our community! With well over 10,000 (10,950 at time of writting – Dec 2022) SENCOs/ALNCOs and SEN professionals all in one place, every question is answered usually in a matter of minutes, you see you don’t have to feel alone anymore!
What is a Community Interest Company?
SENsible SENCO is a CIC (Community Interest Company), this means we give back to the community rather than trying to make vast amounts of money, in fact both Abigail and Gavin receive no financial payments for working on SENsible SENCO, everything (with the exception of bills) goes back into making the site better or straight back to the community in the way prize draws and special giveaways.
You can support the community by subscribing to our website from as little as £2 a month!

The first year!
SENSible SENCO as a CiC was transformed on 19th April 2022. Since then we’ve worked hard to give you support for your role as a SENCO, we’ve giving countless discounted products, giveaways, online discussions and more.
The website was mainly a dropping point for resources from the Facebook Community. But now it’s a beating heart of everything we do, with a shop, SEND jobs, videos and much, much more. From its first creation, up to what is now version 2 of the website it has held over 1,000 SENCO made resources, 100’s of hours of video and audio content. We’re not programmers and are learning as we go, so imagine what the site will be like in another year or two?
£7,000+ given back to schools in giveaways, promotional discounts and book vouchers.
1000’s of SENCOs supported with personal advice.

To support SENCOs across the UK to the best of our ability, Abigail Hawkins who was a SENCO for 25 years, knows how lonely and hard the role is, even more so in the current financial climate. We want to empower all SENCOs to be the best they can be, by giving you all the information we possibly can do. This will help you to make informed choices whether you are a New SENCO, Old SENCO or leadership covering the role.
