It is essential to consider the needs of ALL students.
Students with SEND are the most likely group to be absent or excluded from school according to recent Ofsted findings. They are also more likely to be NEET and less likely to achieve in their attainment.
Unless careers leaders are actively coordinating their careers plans with SENDCOs and teachers in ARB units, it’s difficult to say if all student needs are being met. It is always good practice to involve students in the design and planning of events and co-production with students with SEND is particularly valuable to ensure you are meeting needs
