The National SEND Audit

Ben Barton

We are proud to launch the National SEND Audit today and to start the journey of SEND leaders in schools and trusts throughout the UK taking back control of the SEND agenda and building a call for change. Created by Dr Anita Devi, the National SEND Leadership audit will help to assess your setting’s strengths and areas for development across 7 key areas of SEND leadership. This is also your opportunity to contribute to national policy and get a national report on SEND Leadership across the country.
