Building Better Futures report
Around 15 per cent of the pupil population, around 1.3 million schoolage students in England, are classed as having special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). Future-proofing and equipping our SEND school estate to enable this growing cohort of young people to thrive, develop and fulfil their potential, is a complex challenge.
Having recently constructed six SEND schools in the East of England alone, we care about creating environments that enable children and young people to thrive. With this in mind, we are committed to exploring how the process involved in creating buildings and estates that enable children and young people to truly thrive and reach their potential can be optimised.
We wanted to delve into the sector and explore all angles of delivery - from concept to colour scheme. Bringing together knowledge, experience and expertise from across the public and private sector to explore opportunities to build on experience and improve the provision of purpose-built SEND schools across the UK is at the heart of this white paper.
Our objective for this research is to work collaboratively to enhance the pathway for SEND school design and delivery so that it improves the lives of the young people, teachers, carers and families. We want to start a conversation which shares insights, sparks innovations, and encourages collaborations.
