|FLSE Services||What we're About||A Day in the Life of a Special School|
To guarantee and improve the achievement and wellbeing of the most vulnerable children who have special needs and disabilities in society.
We want to make the most of the moment and of the future, researching the most effective and enjoyable practice for the best outcomes.
We want our input to be lasting, creating a legacy and a platform for sustained quality and improvement in a way that recognises the rights, joys and dignity of the young people we work with.
We want to be a force for good - with high expectations and a big heart.
The FLSE champions the rights of the children in our care, through the established networks of like minded practitioners that create a powerful collective voice within special education both regionally and nationally.
