Today we are speaking with Paul Donkersloot, the CEO of KWEST Multi Academy Trust. Paul is an expert within the SEN education sector, having specialised in SEN and special schools for over 40 years.

Paul discussed the challenges to implement change, how the Education Reform programme focused on academic outcomes than supporting children with special needs appropriately, such as learning life skills.

Paul highlights how changing attitudes has enabled these schools to welcome diversity & inclusion,  to be more transparent and are better supported by society and mainstream schools.

The underlying message is to have the right process in place at the Early Years Foundation Stage which will ensure every child receives the right start to a good education.

We hope you enjoy it!
