Department of Education Approved List of Independent Special Schools and Colleges
Lists of all independent schools and colleges for children with special educational needs or disability (SEND), including:
schools and colleges approved under section 41 of the Children and Families Act 2014 in England and Wales
independent special schools in England, including non-maintained special schools (NMSS)
NMSS are schools that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996.
You can filter the lists by local authority or by type of school.
Read the SEND code of practice for parents to find out how to name one of these schools in a child’s education, health and care (EHC) plan.
Visit the school and college performance tables if you’d like to find out about special schools or colleges maintained by a local authority.
Read the guide for independent special schools and colleges interested in applying for approval under section 41.
What is SEN Support?
SEN Support is the system by which schools should assess the needs of children, and then provide appropriate support.
The system should follow four stages, often referred to as a ‘cycle’: Assess, Plan, Do, Review. For further information about this cycle, often referred to as the ‘graduated approach’, see Chapter 6 of the SEND Code of Practice 2015.
An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support.
EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs.
ABA Horizons believes every child can learn. Especially when given the right tools and support. Despite if they learn differently from you and I. We strive to help young people on the spectrum to maximise their potential.
Based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, we provide high quality, individualised services. We increase effective learning by reducing barriers that prevents learning. We teach functionally equivalent skills to replace behaviours that may challenge.
