NASS Manifesto 2024Our NASS Manifesto for Special Schools will be launching on Wednesday 24th April 2024.

We believe that to protect children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) now and into the future, we need urgent action during the first 100 days of a new government to remove barriers and build a better SEND system.

Our manifesto will set out the six key actions that we will be campaigning for the next government to take.
