Our work in the area of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities is dedicated to improving provision for pupils with SEND in both mainstream and special schools (including the independent sector).
We provide Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) training for teachers and teaching assistants in mainstream and special schools on a range of topical issues, for example: Provision Management, effective use of Teaching Assistants, judging the impact of interventions and preparing for legislative changes in SEND policy and practice. We also offer a range of special educational needs and disabilities training courses, in conjunction with our partners.
Our consultancy services to schools are aimed at improving pupil outcomes and include:
- Supporting mainstream schools, consortia or local authority groups on their strategic response to SEND provision through the introduction and development of Provision Management.
- Providing special schools with a School Improvement Partner (accredited for special schools) and leading on Headteachers’ Performance Management.
- Contributing to school improvement, in mainstream and special schools, through supporting managers and staff, for example, in the areas of curriculum development and assessing and tracking pupils’ progress.
