Welcome To ASEND

We are dedicated to improving outcomes for all children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities, including children who are excluded or at risk of exclusion.

Whatever their needs or the challenges they face, we will work to engage these children and young people in education, improve their wellbeing and support them on their journey to a productive, happy adult life.

“Every child is unique, as is every school. Understanding and supporting their particular needs paves the way to outstanding progress.”

From my early days in teaching I took it as read that all children have the right to an education which meets their individual needs and builds on their individual strengths. ASEND has been my passion for the past decade. We strive to empower education providers to enable every child to grow into happy healthy adults who contribute fully to society.

TESTIMONIALS

Tutor

‘I just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying this work. I’ve never loved my job in the past and finally, I have something to look forward to! “

Bella

Barnhill Community High

“Following the work with ASEND, the school was able to refocus its SEN and Inclusion policy. ASEND helped us to make Inclusion at the heart of the school rather than standing outside mainstream provision. 5* Service – excellent communication.”

“Extremely pleased with the professionalism and approach to tasks. A valuable service that we will use again.”

Deputy Headteacher

Tutor

“I really enjoy having that ‘sense of belonging’ when you report in to a company which can offer support and feedback on issues where you are unsure, particularly in the early stages with a new student. I feel that I am learning all the time and enjoy the expert advice I get from Barbara and the friendly supportive caring team around her.”

“Thank you for your work with my son this year. I must admit that he was sceptical that working with a tutor would be worth it after his past experiences with tutors. However, it was apparent from day one that you were fully aware of his needs and able to prioritise to maximise what can be gained in each session.“

Following the work with ASEND the school was able to refocus its SEN and Inclusion policy. This has led to a push on recognising barriers to learning across the curriculum and improvement in quality first provision.”
