About Sarah Helton

image9

Sarah Helton of BPT

My entire career has revolved around special educational needs and disabilities. I am a passionate advocate for individuals with SEND, supporting them to achieve their upmost in learning and their greatest possible independence. Alongside campaigning to ensure that the world is as inclusive as possible.


My personal and professional mantra is that 'every moment counts'. We should all make the most of every second and working with children with SEND has truly taught me this. 


All children deserve an excellent education. Individuals with SEND have exactly the same rights as those without SEND and they must never be given a second class education or a life which merely considers their basic needs. 


Upon leaving school all children have the right to a fulfilling life. A life where they are a member of their local community.


With 20+ years of SEND experience and an outstanding track record in a diverse range of roles (Deputy Head, Assistant Head, Teacher, Local Authority Education Officer and Educational Publisher) I now work as an author, trainer and consultant. I write about SEND issues - books and resources for educational professionals and story books for children. I also provide excellent SEND advice, support, training and consultancy to educational settings, families and to individual children.


I also work part-time as an Assistant Head Teacher of a special school in Dorset.
