Refer to our template SEND report to learn what information you should expect to see about your school's SEND provision. Use our SEN jargon buster to help you understand the report.

You should receive reports at least annually

Your board needs to know how your school provides for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Ideally, your school's SEN co-ordinator (SENCO) should report to your board at least annually about your school's provision for, and progress of, pupils with SEND. This will help you scrutinise and monitor this area effectively.

Our associate expert Lorraine Petersen, who was previously the chair of nasen (an SEND charity), helped us create this template.
