SEND Reviews

Conducting a SEND Review in your setting can help to improve SEND provision and strategy, so that all children and young people are appropriately supported to achieve good outcomes in both mainstream and special settings. At nasen, we have several options available to you, for when you are thinking about conducting a SEND Review for your setting.


SEND Review Guides

You may already be familiar with the SEND Review Guides developed by the Whole School SEND Consortium. These FREE resources provide guidance on suitable structured approaches for you to consider when it comes to providing the right support for children and young people with SEND.

All of these guides and frameworks follow the principles of self-evaluation, peer review and reflective practice to support the effective reviewing of SEND at a range of levels from strategic leadership to individual practitioners.

Online SEND Reviewer Training

Funded through the Whole School SEND Consortium, Real Group has developed an Online SEND Reviewer Training module. It’s perfect for those within the education workforce who prefer online delivery or wish to complete the training over a period of time. This module follows the principles of all SEND Reviewer training.

This free training which is open to all education professionals will enable colleagues within your setting to conduct quality reviews of SEND provision and empower others to improve their practices.

SEND Reviews

nasen offers training and support for reviewing the SEND provision in your school. We will support you with each stage of the review process, from an initial self-audit to reviewing provision face-to-face. From that we will help you to identify strengths and any areas to feed forward for development. Additional consultancy and follow-on training is also available to further support your school or setting’s SEND improvement journey.

Although we believe that working alongside you to review your school provides great opportunities for shared professional learning, we do understand that sometimes you may want to commission a fully external SEND review. nasen is able to conduct these for you too.

Commissioning SEND Reviews for a group of schools

Are you a multi-academy trust or a local authority? If so, commissioning a programme of SEND Reviews for all or some of your schools can help you to drive improvement for SEND. nasen structures a SEND Review programme which helps schools to:

  • Understand the process of review for SEND;
  • Co-conduct reviews, including peer reviews, thereby building sustainability through professional development;
  • Audit current provision and identify existing strengths
  • Review provision and identify areas for development
  • Action-plan, informed by actual review

The benefits of a programme of SEND Reviews are the opportunities to identify:

  • good practice which can be shared across all schools in the group, and 
  • common training needs or other areas for development which could be collectively actioned
