Approaches to supporting SEND pupils in multi-academy trusts

Privacy Notice
Information Sheet

This project seeks to support the outcomes of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in mainstream secondary schools.

It will explore the approaches used across school trusts in supporting secondary pupils with SEND, the extent to which trusts with specialist provision are drawing on this to support their mainstream schools, and the challenges trusts are facing and how these have been overcome. The findings will be published as an accessible research report which will examine the different approaches which trusts are using to support pupils with SEND, with recommendations focused on policy and practice.

The project will run from September 2023 to March 2024 and will involve case studies with 20 multi-academy trusts (MATs). Each case study will comprise interviews with senior leaders and special educational needs (SEN) coordinators.
