Serious question to all #NAP followers & partners.

As we look to spread across the South East, does the ‘Norfolk’ in the ”Norfolk Assessment Pathway” need to go?

Do we have a ‘re-brand’ or do we stick with what we’ve got?

(Feel free to comment with any suggested name changes)

Thanks to our recent followers.

To all teachers, local #SEND groups, parent groups & schools...

If you need a way to show progress for your SEND pupils )mainstream, or specialist setting) get in touch.

Our SEND curriculum allows those smaller steps of progress.


The first draft of our #outdoorlearning curriculum has landed, and only one word to describe it.....


Thanks to Nige & Em from our preferred providers @GoldcrestOutEd for their work.

Final draft should be with everyone for Easter, ready to go in the Summer Term.

We’re looking forward to hearing about all the exciting new developments from @NAPNorfolk as we welcome Chris to our #Norfolk offices tomorrow. #SEND @ClassNorfolk https://t.co/1MCHOWRdOo

Long, but rewarding day in Biggleswade today, visiting @Ivel_Valley_Sch - & what a school it is.

Great to put the finishing touches to a plan for next term.

Looking forward to working with a setting doing so many good things!

Norfolk Assessment Pathway

“A curriculum by teachers, for teachers.”

Do you struggle to demonstrate progress for your SEND pupils in your mainstream setting? The NAP is a specialist curriculum developed by Norfolk’s SEN Trust of schools and now in use in more than 40 schools across the county, allowing those smaller steps of progress that traditional a curriculum doesn’t always demonstrate. The NAP is a constantly evolving product, adapting to meet the latest educational changes, and meet the needs of our partner schools. Membership of the NAP allows regular CPD for your staff, cross-school moderation, and a chance to influence the direction and content of the curriculum.

 Chris has a wide range of skills acquired from a range of settings, including Pupil Referral Unit (PRU), Mainstream, and SEN schools. He has led projects involving Boys’ engagement, Student reward programmes, Curriculum design and development, and Staff development days. With recent experience of delivering School to School (S2S) support in Mainstream settings, he can work with schools to help get students with a range of needs fully engaged and included in learning.

A Norfolk Steps tutor, Chris has a background in Behaviour support, and has recent experience of leading on Behaviour in a Specialist setting. Chair of the Special Schools Deputies Group, he is also used to leading other professionals, and as Project Lead on the Norfolk Assessment Pathway (NAP) he is a regular visitor to mainstream settings, delivering training on areas of curriculum support and moderation.
