SEND Round-up: Reviewing & looking forward

I’m obviously not the first to wish you all a Happy New Year, but that doesn’t mean I wish it any less for you! 2017 could be a cracker – certainly in terms of blogging from the SEND community and getting our messages out there. Good luck to everyone for the year ahead. In terms […]

SEND Round-up: NIPT, more school & success

Wow, 24 linkers for the SEND Round-up last month; I’m wondering if that must be some sort of record! Thanks all. Think we all got prolific overnight… either that or we have caught up on sleep and have time on our hands (ha!) On the other hand maybe it’s that there are more pressing issues at […]

SEND Round-up: Holidays

This month has been all about moving house for us, so very little time for a holiday or blogging myself but I’ve still loved reading other blogs when I could.

SEND Round-up: Carers Week & Twitter storm

Yet again, it has been a busy old month in the world of SEND. To be honest though, I don’t think there’s ever a quiet month for any of us. The biggest story of the month was probably the mistake made by legal firm Baker Small, when they publicly took to their Twitter account to celebrate what […]
