New Schools Network (NSN) and the National Association of Independent and Non-Maintained Special Schools (NASS) are delighted to be working together to offer support to special free schools.
NSN has a key role in helping free schools post-approval, and is now working with NASS, which has a strong reputation for supporting and representing non-LA schools, to provide a support system for special free schools once they are up and running.
What does this mean for my school?
