SEND Developmental Peer Review

Challenge Partners is excited to launch a pilot SEND Peer Review programme, for schools who would like to focus on enhancing provision and outcomes for pupils with SEND. Schools are brought together in trios to support, challenge and share expertise, working through a rigorous self-evaluation, in-school review days and whole cohort events.

Who is it for?

Schools who would like to examine their practice and provision for their pupils with SEND, celebrate areas of strength, and push forward areas for development. These schools are also prepared to welcome challenge from their peers and are confident that they have the leadership capacity to engage with the programme and make progress.

Key benefits


Training and access to the EvaluateMySchool platform, to identify a baseline to work from and clear areas for development

Expert matching

Create trusting and supportive pairs to exchange knowledge and to build strong, lasting networks

Peer review days

Build social capital with peers and provide honest and insightful feedback on your self-evaluation, also an opportunity to collaborate and co-create solutions


Each stage of the programme is designed to push forward practice and provision, including a written action plan and post-programme follow up
