The National Association of Independent Schools & Non-Maintained Special Schools (NASS) is a membership organisation working with and for special schools in the independent, voluntary and private sectors within the UK. NASS is proud of its role in improving opportunities and standards for special schools outside of Local Authority control.
Welcome to NASS
NASS is the voice of the non-maintained special school sector. We are here to promote the role of high quality specialist provision within a modern inclusive education service that respects the choices of children, their families and carers. We work in close partnership with member schools, other SEND organisations and central government to achieve this. We currently represent and support over 300 schools across England and Wales.
