Aligning for Success: The SENCO as a Strategic Planner

by | Apr 16, 2024

Introduction into Strategic Planning as a SENCO

Have you ever wondered why strategic planning is so pivotal for us as SENCOs?
In our bustling day-to-day lives, where each decision and intervention can feel like it’s made on the fly, strategic planning might seem like one of those lofty concepts that only CEOs and big-time executives have the time to ponder over. But what if I told you that incorporating just a bit of this high-level planning into our routines could make our tasks a lot less daunting and more effective? Let’s unpack the toolbox of strategic planning together and see how it can fit into our world.

What’s the Big Deal with Strategic Planning?

Imagine you’re planning a long road trip. You have your map spread out on the table, a list of places you want to visit, and a rough idea of where you’re going to stop for breaks. That’s strategic planning at its core – setting a route, marking milestones, and having contingency plans ready for when things go awry.

What Exactly Is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning involves defining a strategy or direction, and making decisions on allocating your resources to pursue this strategy, including your time and money. In the world of business, strategic planning is what helps companies set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, ensure employees and other stakeholders are working toward common goals, and assess and adjust the organisation’s direction in response to a changing environment.
