SEND resources for teachers

Resources to support students with special educational needs

There remains a vast attainment gap between learners with special educational needs and their peers – and yet, according to a recent survey by Teacher Tapp, only 19% of teachers in secondary schools and 13% of teachers in primary schools feel they have all the help they need to support students with SEN.

That’s why we’ve put together a range of teaching resources to help you support learners with special educational needs and disabilities, including ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia and Tourette Syndrome. These SEND resources include CPD articles with advice on whole-school approaches and strategies for supporting young people in mainstream schools, as well as printable educational resources, templates and worksheets.

They include tips on numeracy, handwriting, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, sequencing and more, and will help SEN teachers, subject teachers, form tutors and teaching assistants support young people from key stage 2 to key stage 4.

You’ll also find a toolkit of teaching resources and strategies to support EAL learners; for more on English as an additional language, see our EAL resources page. 

For support with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH), browse our CPD articles on wellbeing and visit our children’s mental health and wellbeing page.
