We have set up the group to build a network of practitioners specialising in working with pupils aged 2 – 18, with SEND in a variety of contexts. We aim to create a mechanism of support and CPD opportunities for teachers who are working with learners with SEND and/or are not meeting age related expectations. We are currently a group of 8 schools (15 teachers) and welcome new participants – the more the merrier! In the first instance our focus has been to establish a purpose and direction for the group by collaborating to find a common theme for development. We have chosen to look at ways we assess, moderate and provide progression for learners who are reaching or have reached Early Learning Goals.
