National SENCO Workload Survey - One year on

One year ago, the NEU, nasen and Bath Spa University conducted a joint research project exploring SENCO workload. The survey received over 1900 responses. The report was published in November 2018 and is available here.
Our work and research into the role of the SENCO, in particular workload, is ongoing. The survey fed into a number of projects, including the Whole School SEND 'Effective SENCO Deployment' project led by Hannah Moloney.
However, we want to ensure that our future work remains focused on the needs of SENCOs and the schools that they work in. We also want to ensure that we are keeping the SENCO role, in particular issues related to workload, firmly in the current agenda.
To this end, we have devised a quick survey which is open to all who work in education. The survey aims to review and add to the existing research and explores:
  • The impact of the National SENCO Workload Survey and
  • Current issues which are pertinent to SENCO role.
The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary and you can withdraw at anytime, without reason. Some questions are optional; you can scroll to the next question. You are not required to answer all questions. Some questions are for specific roles only.

All responses to the survey are contributed anonymously. You will not be required to provide your name or any identifying information as part of the survey. Responses will be collated for analysis and written up, and will only be accessible to the Research team. Some individual quotes may be used to further illustrate findings. However these will not be personally identifiable. We will publish our findings and make recommendations later in the year. 

Dr Helen Curran is the lead researcher on this project. The survey has been granted ethical approval by Bath Spa University. If you have any questions, please email Dr Helen Curran
