ESRC funded research - DfE-Inclusion & the academisation of English secondary schools: trends in the placement of pupils with significant SEN & those permanently excluded

 Centre member Alison Black is leading on this project which aims to analyse a national dataset (the National Pupil Database) about pupils and schools to explore the routes some vulnerable pupils take through secondary schools. The project team (Alison Black, Alexey Bessudnov and Brahm Norwich) are interested in comparing trends over time (2003-2015) with a focus on: pupils with SEN that enter at year 7 and exit during later years; and all pupils permanently excluded from secondary schools.  Please visit the project website for further information.

The SEND Centre hosted Professor Andrew Martin (University of New South Wales) on 16 January 2018.  Andrew gave two seminars during his visit, powerpoint presentations for both are below.

The centre holds regular meetings throughout the academic year. It is a forum for us to discuss, present and examine ideas, practices and research. Typically meetings, have had students present their research ideas and findings, staff present their research, analysis of interesting papers and have outside speakers talk about their research. The Centre is central to the flourishing of research in our field in GSE. We expect all doctoral students to participate in all sessions and sometimes to present their research.
