Primary SEND Hub

Main aims of the project in 2019 - 20

The number of pupils entering mainstream schools with a range of special needs and disabilities continues to grow and the importance of sharing expertise from across Camden has been highlighted as a strategic priority for Camden Learning. The SEND hub will build on the successful work achieved in year one.

The aims of the Hub are:-

  • One key area will be assessment after P levels, with a focus on promoting and enhancing inclusive classrooms in Camden by working intensively with Recently Qualified Teachers (RQTs) in particular.
  • To support practitioners to include children with SEND and autism in the mainstream classroom across EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
  • To give practical support and strategies to include children with a range of complex needs.
  • To offer examples of high quality practice in a mainstream setting to enable practitioners to deliver the best possible outcomes in their own school.

  • A network of supportive practitioners who seek to challenge and develop each other through “Lesson Study”
  • CPD – twilights, INSET and specific input for specific groups within a school or groups of schools.
