Whole School SEND
The Whole School SEND Consortium brings together schools, organisations and individuals who are committed to ensuring that every child and young person with SEND can achieve their potential at school. The Whole School SEND Consortium is delivering the Department for Education Strategic Support to the Workforce in Mainstream and Special Schools Contract 2018-2020.
The consortium is structured around the regions of England. Go to the Regions page to find your regional leads’ email links, to access ‘Find Expertise’ and to join the Community of Practice.
To support every school to deliver an inclusive education for all children and young people the Whole School SEND Consortium will:
- Drive education institutions to prioritise SEND within their CPD and school improvement plans including facilitating greater links between mainstream and special schools.
- Equip schools to identify and meet their training needs in relation to SEND.
- Build the skills of teachers working in mainstream and special schools and of SENCOs and teachers of classes of children and young people with sensory impairments by promoting best practice.
- Identify and respond to any gaps in the training and resources available to schools.
