This programme explores how governors can gain insight and understanding with regard to special needs children in their schools. We follow two governors, one from a mainstream school and another from a special needs school, as they investigate SEN provision and provide constructive feedback to their respective governing bodies.

The programme also shows:

  • A mainstream school governor accompanying a group of special needs children on a weekly trip to an outdoor educational centre
  • A special needs school governor investigating how pupils from his school integrate with pupils at a mainstream school art class
  • Judy Burgess, head of Devon governor services comments on the governors' progress and how effective their visits have been
