    Faye Whittle is a SEND specialist, an education consultant and an advisor on inclusion in schools. In this episode of Halcyon podcasts, we hear Faye and Anna discuss how SEND work dovetails with that of the mental health lead and the importance of collaboration to ensure the right level of support, monitoring and evaluation of each student is correctly in place.

    Faye also goes on to share her observations that a higher proportion of pupils excluded from schools are in SEN groups, and what schools can do to protect those students, support them and adopt measures that provide a more inclusive environment. There are some actionable ideas to take away and use in the classroom too.
