We work with and support many different SEND Specialists who offer a wealth of free high quality information, resources and training for meeting the needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The SEND gateway – the home of Whole School SEND is an online portal offering education professionals free, easy access to high quality information, resources and training for meeting the needs of children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

The Oak National Academy provides an online classroom made by teachers, for teachers. Their free, high-quality video lessons and resources are available to all schools. They provide approx 10,000 lessons and resources covering a wide range of subjects, from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 11.

Evidence for Learning has transformed how hundreds of SEND schools, colleges and provisions are able to evidence, assess, review and plan for meeting the unique needs of their SEND learners, especially in light of the Rochford Review.

It supports an Inquiry-based approach to education and provision, that allows ALL stakeholders in a child, young person or adult’s learning and development to quickly and easily gather photo and video evidence, linked to the individual’s learning goals as well as any key skills frameworks.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) is dedicated to breaking the link between family income and educational achievement.

The EEF isn’t just a grant-funder, nor just a research organisation. What we are is a charity with a moral imperative – to support teachers and senior leaders to raise attainment and close the disadvantage gap – which roots its response to this educational challenge in the best available evidence.
