What we do

We're committed to 'closing the gap', in terms of attainment and achievement, between children who have special needs and disabilities and their peers

We'll offer you support to deliver your school improvement plan for children and young people with SEND, through our 'assess', 'plan', 'do' and 'review' cycle, focusing on improving the delivery of wave 1, 2 and 3 provisions.
