A Word from SENsible SENCO:

Given the significant impact of SENCO burnout as a leading reason for SENCOs leaving their positions, prioritizing SENCO wellbeing is essential in their daily responsibilities. The strategies that Lynn outlines are readily accessible and adaptable to various contexts. It’s crucial to remember your importance; your optimal mental and physical condition is vital. Without it, the children we are all dedicated to supporting could be adversely affected. If you find yourself in need of support or assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are here to help you thrive in your SENCO role.
