My name is Bethany Maidment and I am currently the SENCo and Deputy Headteacher at Southbroom St James Academy. I have  been a SENCO for over ten years, both in mainstream and special education. I have worked with the National Autistic Society and I currently mentor on the Bath Spa University postgraduate Senco course. This is my first year as a Leading SENCO and I am so looking forward to working alongside schools to make their SEND provision the best it can be!
