Simon was formerly Director of Education at the National Education Trust and before that Deputy Headteacher in a school for children between 2 and 19 with Severe or Profound Learing Disabilities. He is a prominent advocate for SEND issues and regularly writes for the TES, as well as appearing at education conferences across the country.
