SEND Inclusion Award

The shared Learning Trust has teamed up with Award Place for the SEND Inclusion Award.

The SEND Inclusion Award offers mainstream schools the opportunity to gain accreditation for high-quality provision and outcomes for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Schools are required to reflect on and improve their provision in line with a series of objectives that fulfil both Ofsted criteria and the SEND Code of Practice. Specifically, the award focuses on ‘outcomes’ for pupils and how schools can demonstrate the impact of their SEND provision. The award leads schools through a process of self-evaluation, action planning and evidence collection before final verification and accreditation.

The award will help schools develop high-quality SEND provision throughout the school by:

  • promoting awareness of SEND issues and inclusion for all staff, parents, pupils and governors
  • evaluating and improving classroom practice and interventions
  • focusing on pupil outcomes.
