JSENSE a charity registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, was established in 2013. It began by undertaking extensive detailed research and analysis into the needs, the demographic factors, the current provision, parental views, the schools involved and the relevant national and local policies on SEND and its funding.
INCREASED INCIDENCE OF “SEND”
JSENSE noted an increasing incidence of SEND. Without additional support, Jewish Children with SEND will not reach their full potential at school and could have or have difficulty coping socially and obtaining employment. By developing support for these children we can help them achieve their full potential.
Since 2013, we have worked with over 150 teachers, TAs and parents to develop skills and awareness, with over 95% positive feedback and outcomes from the work we do.
To date, we have worked closely with a mixture of state and independent schools, working with over 200 teachers, TAs & parents to develop skills & awareness.
In early 2019, JSENSE merged with a local Jewish Parents support charity, JADDS. We are now working directly with Parents while continuing to provide our educational and consultancy services.
