with Matt Silver, Head Teacher, Shaftesbury High School, Harrow
Recently I put out a call for positive stories of great practice in education, health and social care that we could share here. I’m hoping that by highlighting the great work that some are doing, we can influence and inspire other schools who want to improve how they help their SEND pupils.
It’s one thing to call out bad or poor practice and report the things that are going wrong. But we need also to show the way forward. As part of the Whole School SEND/nasen Expert Reference Group on SEND Leadership, I have been working with a group of education leaders on Every Leader a Leader of SEND, including our own columnist, Hannah Maloney, to create a key resource for this. Another way for us to help is to showcase exemplary practice.
