Working in partnership with parents carers children and young people

News - 15 Jan 2018

So much of the coverage about SEND is negative; what’s not working and what schools need to do next. Everyone remains focused upon improvement and whilst this is extremely important, nasen knows that there is really good practice happening every day which isn’t always recognised.

When we talk to groups of teachers and SENCOs we want to be able to share examples of this good practice, giving everyone the chance to benefit from ideas that really work.

To help us spread good practice, tell us what you do to make strong, productive partnerships with parents and carers and how you involve learners with SEND in a meaningful way in their own education. The ideas we get we can share anonymously and consider for our new Strategic SEND area on the nasen SEND Gateway.

Please take 5 minutes to complete our short survey to tell us what is working well. 

Thank you for helping us to champion your great work for learners with SEND.
