By helping special schools to speak as one, Special Schools’ Voice can create the best possible outcomes for children and young people. The underpinning principles of this Collaborative are efficiency, effectiveness, integrity and accountability. Our objectives are:

Connect with key government agencies: by establishing constructive and professional relationships with agencies including Ofsted, the Department for Education and the National College for Teaching and Leadership.

Create an effective special schools network: by facilitating and enhancing two-way communication between special schools and academies, and connecting with regional groupings of special schools across the country.

Collaborate with relevant national organisations: by working with other like-minded national organisations that represent SEN, we can communicate consistent and unified messages to government agencies.

We value equality, fairness and diversity within schools and colleges and beyond.
