Wendy Fagan

Teacher of Art


Wendy originally joined Latimer Academy as an Art teacher where over the years she has achieved consistent attainment success with the young learners she has engaged with.  It is not uncommon for learners with social and emotional issues to gravitate towards the arts not only for the development of a specific creative skill set but also for the therapeutic and calming space it offers.  Wendy’s classroom is no different and learners benefit daily from the calm ambiance and soothing environment housed within.  Since September 2019 Wendy has also acted as the school Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENDCo) where she has assumed responsibility for learners with Education Health Care Plans and is the conduit between school, parents and the LA SEN Dep’t.  regarding EHCP/ SEN consultations and placements.
