Our partners

We believe in a collaborative approach to ensure we meet the needs of all out learners, all of the time. We have established some very strong links with other networks to share good practice and also to support the learning in other provisions countywide and nationally.

Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (KsENT)

We are very proud to be a founder member of KsENT, a Cooperative Trust made up of eight Kent Special schools committed to formally working together to support and develop our schools and the education they provide. Nine¬†more SEN schools are currently consulting on joining the Trust which will mean that over 75% of the County’s SEN schools will be members. The other five¬†schools plan to join the Trust by September 2017, giving special schools a single, cohesive focus and a real mandate to develop provision across the county.

Co-operative Schools Network (CSNet)

We are proud to be a school built around cooperative values and are working alongside other cooperative alliances in London and the South East to collaborate in developing provision for our young people. CSNet is the network that joins us all together!

Collaborative Learning Alliance of Special Schools (CLASS)

We were awarded teaching school status in September 2015 alongside two other outstanding special schools (Meadowfield and Goldwyn) and formed a Teaching School Alliance involving all 23 of the counties special schools. We are responsible, as an alliance, for developing provision in all our schools in initial teacher training, research, school-to-school support, leadership development, and training.
