Funded by the Department for Education as the Schools Workforce Contract for 2016/2017, the Whole School SEND Consortium is a coalition to drive and support school-led improvement. It is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND by making the best use of school, third sector and education system resources and exists to help schools identify special educational needs and promptly access the right support Our frame for achieving this is the SEND Review Guide, a Review Guide is that is based on the Pupil Premium Review and can be used by all schools to audit their own SEND provision.
The Whole School SEND Consortium is hosted by London Leadership Strategy (LLS). It is made up of Teaching Schools, Academy Chains and school-led networks such as Whole Education, as well as educational organisations such as the National Educational Trust, the Teacher Development Trust, Future Leaders, Teaching Leaders and the Institute of Education. The consortium is also made up of individual National, Local and Specialist Leaders of Education. Recognising the strength of combining this school-led approach with third party SEND expertise, the consortium draws on nasen's leadership in SEND and their national networks on SENCOs, and expertise in Planning into Adulthood from the Council for Disabled Children. The consortium also draws on impairment-specific expertise across dyslexia, communication, SpLD and PMLD and from outstanding special schools.
The Consortium is concerned for the needs of all children and young people with SEND - not just those in the schools that we work in - so we are working to take the principles and practice of the Review into all aspects of school policy and practice.
