Department: Learning Development Unit

Mrs Liddy is passionate about her role as SENCo at Kingsmead and delighted to do her job in an inclusive, warm and caring school. She started her teaching career in 2001 as a Teacher of French and Spanish and moved into Special Educational Needs from 2005.

In the Learning Development Unit and across the mainstream life of the school, she supports a number of pupils and caters for a wide range of needs. The LDU supports pupils in a 1:1 or small group setting.

Before Joining Kingsmead in 2015, Mrs Liddy worked as Head of Learning Support / SENCo for an International School in Switzerland for three years where she developed skills with pupils from the age of three through to eighteen years in the beauty of Lake Geneva. Prior to that, she was the Teacher in Charge of a County Resource for Asperger Syndrome and Autism in a mainstream secondary school in North Wales.

During her time in Switzerland, she studied for the Postgraduate Certificate in Special Educational Needs Coordination (the qualification required to be a SENCo in the UK.) She also worked as an online Tutor, delivering training courses to Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Parents on Autistic Spectrum Conditions. She is currently taking a year course in Psychometric Testing and Assessment.

Mrs Liddy is dedicated to the development of the young people in her care and appreciates the uniqueness and individuality of each one.
