Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (KSENT) is the organised voice of special schools within the County of Kent.  It represents all maintained (Community, Foundation and Academy) special schools, which choose to join it, and currently has 26 members representing every need type.

The vision of KSENT is to enable children and young people in Kent who have special educational needs to have access to high quality specialist provision in order to improve outcomes. KSENT has achieved considerable progress already in establishing itself as a lead organisation, raising standards through supporting other schools and engaging in research and development.


KSENT are a pioneering group of schools who are working together to fulfil the ambitious plan of ensuring all Kent Special Schools provide an excellent education for every pupil with SEND.

In taking these opportunities forward KSENT works closely with partner schools, the Collaborative Learning Alliance of Special Schools (CLASS) and partners from the private sector and government, local and national.
