There are also examples of effective practice which have been shared by schools and other education settings.*

*nasen does not approve or endorse any of the school examples of practice that are published on the SEND Gateway
What is the SEND Review?
The SEND Review, developed by the London Leadership Strategy and partners, is ‘a school-led approach to improving provision for all’ based on the principle that excellent teaching for SEND pupils is excellent teaching for all (SEND Code of Practice, 2015). It can be used in both mainstream and special settings and is based around 8 areas:
- Outcomes for pupils with SEND
- Leadership of SEND
- The quality of teaching and learning for pupils with SEND
- Working with pupils and parents/carers of pupils with SEND
- Assessment and Identification
- Monitoring, tracking and evaluation
- The efficient use of resources
- The quality of SEND provision
Members of the Whole School SEND consortium have worked together to produce some useful resources:
