Our Chief Executive
Professor Adam Boddison is the Chief Executive of nasen with responsibility for strategic direction and operational delivery across the full breadth of nasen’s activity. He also serves as Chair of Whole School SEND. He is the main point of contact for the board of trustees and has a close working relationship with the Department for Education (DfE). Adam also has overall responsibility for external relations and business development.
The Equality and Diversity Working Group
This is an internal group to discuss and action change on equality, diversity, accessibility and inclusion within nasen. It's a safe space for nasen and Whole School SEND (WSS) colleagues to talk about their experiences of equality and diversity, and to identify solutions to take forward to senior leaders and trustees.
We meet once a quarter and have an Action Group, with one representative from each team in nasen, which meets once a month to follow up on actions we have agreed on. In recent months, we have advocated for several proposals both small and large-scale. For example, we recently suggested changes to email signatures to include pronouns and other identifiers people wish to disclose and have produced a draft of an internal equality and diversity monitoring form which we hope will produce a baseline of data on our inclusivity.
