SEND Inspire


Child First Trust is delighted to have partnered with SEND Inspire to provide all member schools with a 7 month full license of the SEND Inspire Programme. This will take schools up until the end of the 2017-2018 school year. After such time, if a school wishes to continue its use of SEND Inspire it will be able to do so at a heavily discounted rate via Child First PLUS. (Details from Sacha Brakenbury).

SEND Inspire is an innovative, web-based company, dedicated to supporting children and young people with special educational needs and their educators. The goal of the company is

Meaningful, measurable achievement for all.

Child First has purchased 63 licenses to be shared between our schools on a needs-led basis. Please email Sacha Brakenbury to secure your licenses (initial maximum of 3 licenses per school).

This will give your school full access to the tool from the initial assessment to the learning goals, activity plans and graphing software.

The licences will start from January and continue until the end of term in July 18.   All data can be transferred if your school decides to purchase its own license for the 2018-2019 school year.

The activity sheets are clear, structured, chunked, explicit; ​easy to slot into planning and useful for a whole class”. Class Teacher​

“We didn’t really know where to start with planning for this pupil. The SEND-Inspire initial assessment gave us a really clear picture of his spikey profile and from this we were able to choose learning goals that suited his needs. We are already seeing the progress we found so hard to evidence before ” SENDco.
