Looking forward to a day with @YareTrust today, delivering sessions on inclusion and our @NAPNorfolk #SEND curriculum.

Thanks for the invite!

Still looking for a #SEND specialist for 2/3 days a week (2 terms) at a Primary school in #Norwich.

Perfect opportunity for a ‘secondment’ if any school has capacity.

Can you help @Penny_Ten @PaulGarvey4 @BinksNeateEvans @HeadsRoundtable or anyone else?


#SEND contacts.....

A Primary School in #Norwich are looking for a #SENDCO for a maternity cover, starting Jan 2020 (or sooner if possible, however unlikely!)

Part-time role, 2/3 days a week.

Please spread the word, and anyone interested, drop us a line!

This term has been so busy. Thanks to all involved.

• SLT support in mainstream
• SLT support in Specialist provision
• ASD base management
• Behaviour management support
• @NAPNorfolk training & devt
• CPD training
• #Intervention work

Get in touch for Jan 2020.

Might be time to take the #NAP to the next level.

It’s proving so popular, to schools up & down the country, that it might be time to actively advertise, rather than relying on just ‘word of mouth.’

Thanks to all those who continue to spread the word!


Worked with several mainstream primaries this term, who’ve been desperate for #SEND support.

The relief, when they’ve been shown the NAP has been great to see!

We’re so pleased to be able to help out hardworking teachers (& at such low cost) & help so many students.

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.
