The new SEND Review section of the SEND Gateway is now live. This will enable you to 'surf' the Gateway according to which of the 8 focus areas of the review you are interested; you'll find resources, provision, providers and research.
The best bit though, is that you can see examples of effective practice from other schools and settings as well as upload your own.
The more examples there are, the more valuable a resource it will become; real examples, with real impact, in real settings.

Let us know by commenting on this post, we'd love to hear from you.
