Inclusion Network

Fairfields Teaching School Alliance works in partnership with Northamptonshire County Council to run the cross-county Inclusion Network which aims to give SENCos and associated agencies a “one-stop-shop” of up-to-date information about inclusion/SEN issues nationally and locally.

Our network of Leading SENCos are available to support SENCos in schools across the County. There is a charge of £350 per day. Initial enquiries via teachingschool@fairfields.northants.sch.uk.  See our School to School Support page for more information.
