Peterborough SENCO COVID Forums

The Peterborough SENCO COVID Forums are multi-agency forums which were formed in response to feedback from Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCOs) during the COVID-19 pandemic. This was to ensure settings received topical, timely and consistent communication from a range of stakeholders, including the opportunity to share best practice across Peterborough (and beyond with colleagues attending from further afield) which SENCO's have reported have had a positive impact on children, young people and families during these unprecedented times.

In response to feedback, the Peterborough SENCO COVID Forums will continue to run into the new academic year 2020/21 and the frequency will change from weekly to fortnightly until October half term 2020. The frequency will then be reviewed as this may change again due to COVID and the needs of the SENCO community.

The Peterborough SENCO Forums run in parallel to the Peterborough SENCO Network.
