School improvement for SEND Resources

Whole School SEND works with schools to share and embed good practice within CPD and school improvement plans, and to build capability within the school workforce.

In this section you will find examples of school improvement projects, across phases and settings, which evidence suggests have resulted in positive outcomes and impact for children and young people with SEND. You could use these to help you to undertake similar projects in your own setting.

More resources will be shared soon - watch this space!

In 2021-22, Whole School SEND developed a new project facilitating Professional Development groups across each region in England. Each participant in the groups identified and led their own SEND-focused school development project, utilising the peer support of the group and the expertise of the WSS regional leads.
