My name is Dawn Cranshaw and I am a part time Regional SEND Leader in the West Midlands area for Whole School SEND. Alongside this role I am also a SENCO in a Primary School with a resource provision and a SEND School Improvement Officer within my Local Authority in Cheshire East as well as a wife and mum so hold many hats! I love being outdoors and spending time with family and friends. I have been in education for over 20 years and taught a range of ages and across a number of Local Authorities. I have always been a keen advocate for SEND and my passion to support the children, their families and the wide range of settings and professionals is at the heart of all I do.

Jo has changed the culture of the school, raising standards through coaching staff in inclusive teaching and learning and the wellbeing of staff and children has become the driving force.
