One of the humbling realisations I had when completing the national award course for SENCOs was that I do not hold a magic wand with any cures. Instead, the secret lies in the open and honest professional dialogue, consultations and dogged determination to find the best set of interventions that we can to meet the needs of our students. One size does not fit all – because we are human and therefore complex beings.
At Tor Bridge High, we have what we call “HIMs” – Holistic Intervention Meetings – which take place on a termly basis.
We realise we are very lucky to be able to have outside professionals around the table – Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), youth services, educational psychologists, police and, lately, the speech and language therapy leader for Plymouth.
