Building Better Futures | Improving the pathway for design and delivery of SEND schools


Peter Whitmore, Managing Director – East, Morgan Sindall

Steve Holt, Head of Operations, Morgan Sindall Construction

Claire Barton, Partner, Haverstock

Having completed a number of SEND schools, the Morgan Sindall Construction team frequently came up against the question; what makes a great SEND school? Deciding to delve deeper into the sector and explore all angles of delivery, from concept to colour scheme, the team decided to commission an in-depth qualitative study.

Bringing together experts from the public and private sectors to look at the factors that make up a truly great SEND school and examine how the delivery pathway could be enhanced to secure improved outcomes for every young person with SEND. The Better Futures white paper was born.
