Welcome to SWALSS
Hello and a very warm welcome to the SWALSS website! We hope that you find the site interesting and informative. If you are a leader in a special school and you are not yet a member of SWALSS, we would love to hear from you.
The South and West Association of Leaders in Special Schools (SWALSS) was formed in 1985, initially to provide support and professional development to special school headteachers. Since that time we have broadened our reach and now offer well regarded conferences and other training opportunities to Deputy/Assistant Headteachers, Middle Leaders, School Business Managers and Governors. SWALSS is a voluntary organisation and is entirely dependent upon the funding it can generate through membership subscription, the running of events and sponsorship.
‘SWALSS is dedicated to improving the education and care of children and young adults with special educational needs and disabilities.’
