Caroline Bibby

Caroline Bibby is an SLE working at Sir Francis Hill Primary School

Caroline's specialism is:

  • Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Backgroud Information:

I have been teaching for 15 years, working in a small Infant school for 6 years and in my current Primary school setting for 9 years. I currently hold the role of Assistant Head, SENCO and Lower School Team Leader, so my experience is wide ranging.

I began to have an interest in additional needs during my third year of teaching, where a large majority of children in my class were on the SEND register. I have currently been in the post of SENCO for 7 years.  I am very passionate about providing quality teaching for all children, including those with SEND, ensuring that all children make progress during their time in school and improve their outcomes.

I took on the role of SLE as I thoroughly enjoy supporting others and also gaining new ideas from differing settings, I feel that we are all on a learning journey and this is never ending. I feel that school-to-school support is essential in the current teaching climate.

I have gained the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination (NASENCO) and most recently my NPQSL and am currently putting these to use in my new role as a SLE. My aim as a SLE is to offer quality support and advice to all SENCOs to develop their leadership skills, enabling them to lead quality provision for children with additional needs in their setting and therefore raise standards and improve outcomes. I enjoy data analysis, working 1:1 with staff and joint action planning. With no class commitment, I can be very adaptable with days to work with you.
