What teachers say about VI support in Essex mainstream schools

SENCO

“When we knew that C was coming here we were very excited but I was very apprehensive about making all the preparations to make him comfortable and successful. We had a lot of help from the specialist teacher team. A list of all the things we needed to put in place. We prepared a room for the braille machine and the embosser and I asked the LSAs if there was anyone who would be prepared to take on learning braille and almost before I had finished speaking I had two volunteers.”

SENCO (Inclusion Week, June 2015)

“The children were thoroughly engaged and enthused in seeing the brailler and (the Specialist Teacher) was fantastic with the children. Her knowledge and ability to answer the children’s questions ensured that it was a very informative and inspiring experience. It really made our inclusion week extra special!!!”
