Teacher Handbook: SEND

A teacher handbook has been launched to support schools to embed inclusive practice. It is a DfE funded resource for schools to support inclusive practice in mainstream settings. The National Association for Special Educational Needs (nasen) leads the Whole School SEND programme. This is the latest in a series of resources developed with schools to support primary, secondary and specialist teachers, teaching assistants, senior leaders and headteachers who work with children and young people with SEND and learning differences. 

The Handbook, created with input from a leading steering group, members of the Whole School SEND consortium, and Merton Special Training Association, offers whole-school and whole-class approaches to SEND provision, as well as subject-specific and condition-specific guidance. 

Teacher Handbook: SEND – Embedding inclusive practice is available as a free download. The Handbook has been developed to support primary, secondary and specialist teachers, teaching assistants, senior leaders and headteachers who work with children and young people with SEND and learning differences.
