National SEND Leadership Network


In 2022/23, we are delighted to be part of the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership's (CEFEL) first ever national SEND leadership network.


We share CEFEL's belief that ‘leaders in education are called to pursue social justice and wellbeing of all, showing love for the disadvantaged, marginalised and vulnerable’. Enabling children with SEND to flourish in all aspects of school life is essential to this mission. All over the country, passionate leaders of SEND are seeking the best possible ways to do this in the face of challenges and obstacles.


This network brings school leaders together from across the country. As we face the future together, we seek to increase our efficacy as leaders by learning from experts, sharing best practice and using our collective influence to improve the life chances for the children and young people we serve.
