What is the EMSYH SEND Hub?
"EMSYH is a diverse region and one which is populated with a wealth of expertise and talent in the provision for pupils with SEND. Through use of the WSS SEND Framework, we believe that we can build a community of learning within each sub-region, which will support our vision for a regional hub. We have been overwhelmed by the support and commitment of colleagues to share their practice, and wish to support them in liberating the talent in our schools for the benefit of all"
Whole School SEND
Whole School SEND’s strategy focusses on embedding SEND into school improvement with the development of a Community of Practice. This growing Community of Practice currently has more than 4500 schools/settings and providers and is set to rise to 10,000 by the end of the contract. The Whole School SEND Schools’ Workforce contract is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people with SEND by networking, collaborating and unlocking the answers that exist within the system.
