SEND network

If you are a champion of arts and creativity working with SEND students in a mainstream or specialist setting, we invite you to join our SEND network.

Connecting teachers, teaching assistants and SENCOs from schools across London, the network aims to:

  • Increase the profile of arts and culture practice in the SEND sector
  • Share and celebrate innovation and excellence in SEND arts and culture
  • Support schools and organisations to build their creative and cultural offer
  • Offer access to additional CPD opportunities including Arts Award training


In its second year, the network was created in response to a call from SEND teachers for a space to share and shape their creative offer. This year the network participated in our unique Tate Exchange partnership.

The network meets throughout the year - the next meeting is on the following date:

  • Thursday 8th June: Southwark room at the Tate Modern, 2-4.30pm

All meetings run from 2-4.30pm.
