Southwark Schools HUB: Inclusion of SEND in Mainstream Schools

Alfred Salter Primary School is proud to host and run the Southwark Schools' SEND HUB. We offer direct school to school support to other mainstream Southwark Schools around the leadership of Inclusion and SEND. We are nominally funded by Southwark for this work and offer the majority of our work at no cost to Southwark schools.

School to School Support

The HUB aims: 

  • To provide half-termly SEND HUB Community Events - an evening dedicated to supporting SENCOs and Inclusion Leads with work priorities and troubleshooting those issues arising in individual schools
  • To open our school to visiting colleagues for SEND focused open days. An opportunity for other schools to observe our practice and to ask questions to amend their own if necessary.
  • To provide schools with a bespoke training/mentoring programme. 

Further details on this initiative can be found here: https://schools.southwark.gov.uk/partnerships

National SENCO Award: 

In the academic year of 2023-24, the SEND HUB will be facilitating the National SENCO Award in partnership with London South Teaching School Hub and University of Roehampton. To register you interest, please follow the link in the attachment at the bottom of this page. 

Colleagues have made the following comments on the Alfred Salter SEND HUB events: 

SENCOs felt able to be honest and supported by their colleagues in other schools, not competitive, and it was very practical and focused on the issues facing people right now.
It’s so useful to network with others and share ideas
