There are many teams working within the umbrella of education and child services, one particular team is that of the Special Educational Needs team, this case study will focus on the role of the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo). The role of the SENCo has been formally established Cowne, E (2003) since the 1994 code of practice DFE (1994) when all schools in England and Wales were required to have a designated teacher in the role of special educational needs coordinator (SENCo). But many schools had SENCo's before that date, as the role had been developing since the mid 1980's when training of SENCo's had begun in most LEAs. The 1994 code of practice DFE (1994) detailed the tasks that should be covered in the role of the SENCo. These tasks included liaising with external agencies including the educational psychology service and other support agencies, medical and social services and voluntary bodies DFE (1994, para 2.14). A revised code of practice Dfes (2001) added the responsibility of managing the SEN team of teachers and learning support assistants within the educational establishment where recently publications.parliament.uk (2006) it's significance was re-affirmed. ‘SENCo's play a key role in building schools' capacity and skills in meeting children's SEN because of their crucial role in advising other members of staff on SEN matters, linking with parents and working within the multi-agency arena.' There is substantial literature related to SENCo's authored by researchers, academics and practitioners, in particular, the nature, remit and working conditions of SENCo's have been the subject of considerable interest. At school-level, the expectations on, activities of and working condition of SENCo's remain highly variable.
