Nasen is passionate about improving the quality of special needs provision in the UK. Let's work together to help everyone achieve.
Readers of Special will be well aware of Oak Field school in Nottingham and its’ head David Stewart. Both I and Lorraine paid another visit to the school to share current SEN practice with professionals visiting from China. In the morning after an impromptu question and answer session David gave the visitors a tour of his school highlighting pieces of assistive technology, unique school features and even included a preview of his latest Christmas production. In the afternoon Lorraine held a seminar exploring current special needs provision and possible implications from the SEND Green Paper. The delegates were suitable impressed by the range of provision on offer and showed a keen interest in the policies that underpin current UK provision. They were especially keen to see the wider implication of inclusion policies and how this impacts on schools.
Nasen would like to thank everyone at Oakhill who made us feel so welcome.
