The SEND Review Guide is based on the Pupil Premium Review and can be used by all schools to audit their own SEND provision.
Part funded by the Department for Education, it has been created in partnership with over forty outstanding special and mainstream schools, as well as organisations such as Contact a Family, Ofsted, Council for Disabled Children, the Institute of Education and Teaching Schools Council. It is powered by the London Leadership Strategy (LLS), a not for profit organisation created by school leaders for school leaders to transform schools and improve outcomes for children and young people.
The Review Guide aims to ensure that children and young people with SEND are visible in their school, supported in their learning and included in the decisions about the teaching they receive. It is most powerful when used as part of a programme of school-to-school support. A direct response to the increasing gap in outcomes between students with SEND and their peers, the Review Guide was created with the purpose of empowering schools to improve their SEND provision. It is made up of a paper-based audit, examples of good practice, guidance on how to carry out a review of SEND provision and self-evaluation templates.
