CLASS is an alliance consisting of 24 Special Schools in Kent and was successfully designated as a National Teaching School in September 2015.
The bid for Teaching School status was led by 3 of Kent’s Outstanding Special Schools on behalf of the 24 Special Schools who are all partners in the Alliance.
A third of the county’s special schools are rated as outstanding by Ofsted with 100% now rated as Good or better. The SEN schools involved are also members of KASS, the Kent Association of Special Schools.
The alliance looks to build on increasing the reputation of that group to take a leading role in the development of special education provision in the South East and nationally.
