Special Educational Needs

The SEND Coordinator (SENDCO) is Maria Alexa

Miss Alexa was born and educated in Romania where she studied Modern Foreign Languages at Stefan cel Mare University. She also graduated with a Master’s Degree in Translations and taught French for 6 years in a large secondary school in her home town. She came to England to rediscover her love for the English language and enjoyed thoroughly her experience at teaching English to EAL pupils in Surrey.

Since 2009 she has passionately supported dyslexic children, leading to her becoming qualified as a Teacher of Special Learning Difficulties (Level 5) and then as an Assessor (Level 7). Miss Alexa is a Member Associate of the British Dyslexia Association and for the last 10 years has worked in an oversubscribed school in Hackney as a teacher of SEN. She has completed the National Award SEN Co-ordinator from our partners at the University of Middlesex

Miss Alexa has encouraged every student to overcame obstacles and look for opportunities to celebrate success. Her efforts have been rewarded with the Jack Petchey Leader Award in 2017.
